My favorite so far is 3M Super 77 Multi-Purpose Adhesive contact cement. It comes in a rattle-can ... I buy mine from Home Depot ... spray both parts, wait 30-secs and attach parts together.

I think hes talking about attaching the panels to the door. Velcro or Dualoc (heavy duty velcro) never work for door panels. With the fabric already glued to the panels, this creates a problem. There is a certain type of metal spring clip used to attach panels that can be slipped on from the rear of the panels. You would need to drill a 1/4" hole in the panel and in the door. Drilling a 1/4" hole in a door panel already covered is obviously not an easy task, hopefully the panel has a layer of foam inbetween the panel and the material.

I have to disagree about the Dualoc. The stuff that RodDoors provides with their system works very well.
