I am noy sure what type of insulation that you used but when I did the roof of my F1 I used 3M General Spray adhesive. It worked fine and has lasted for years.

I used universal panel adhesive (from a caulking gun) and mine is NEVER coimg out! Get the best stuff they sell and lay down a heavy bead. The spray adhesives and contact cement are too thin to permanently bond this stuff.

I'm with Willys. I use lquid Nails on this sheet. Be very sure where you want it. I lay a bead with the caulking gun, and then take a squee gee to spread it around a bit. I even took one and made like a flooring trowel with "teeth" or grooves cut in it. Oh yea, you might want to wear a long sleeve shirt that is trashed, just in case <img src="confused.gif" border="0">
