Wow, they really know how to treat a customer. I would have been happy to sell you 2 yards of anything. Maybe at some point in the future you would remember that and either bring me some work or recommend me to someone else.

I hope you didn't get black closed cell Neoprene, that's a lot more expensive than Volara, which is white. It would work, but it's more than twice as expensive.

Here's a related question about the DAP HHR cement - what's the shelf life like? I've gathered all the materials for my first practice seat upholstery along with a gallon of the DAP and was wondering how best to preserve it?

Since I don't have any spray equipment I was gonna brush/roll it on (which I've read is fine to do), so my thoughts were to transfer some of the cement from the gallon can into a quart-sized can which I would use first - this way I wouldn't have to constantly open the gallon can every time I wanted to use it. Would filling the remaining space in the gallon can with propane (like with long-term paint storage) help, or not worth the effort? I'll be keeping the cans in the house so they won't be subject to freezing temps during the winter.

Thanks!

As far as I can say.. It has a pretty long shelf life..I have left some in a spray gun for over a month with no problem..And I have also used it by brushing it on.. As far as the propane, I have no idea about that.. Mr.Dan would sure know more about this then me.. Just letting you know what I know..

The shelf life for the glue is 12 months when kept at 70 degrees F. It will gel if stored at low temps, but it will regain it's viscosity when returned to 70 degrees. I usually buy 5 gallon cans which have their own pour spout and lid, but if I do use a gallon can, I put one of these "Pour-It" covers on the can right after I open it. That way it is sealed up, but all I have to do is unscrew the top to use the built in pour spout. I'm sure there are other tops like it available at paint stores and on the internet.

EXCELLENT suggestion!!

I do the same.

I know that you can get the covers at LOWE's or HOME DEPOT.

Yea, I had noticed those covers the other day and wondered how well they would work - guess I'll go grab one or two in the near future. At least I won't have to worry about gluing the top to the can with one of those.

Well, I guess I'll see what I can use up in a year, then - I've been planning on doing the seats and door panels in my '78 T/A, guess I'll take care of that sooner rather than later. I'm gonna assume that as the cement ages it looses some of it's holding power? So then not so good for door panels, but probably still viable for gluing vinyl to sewfoam in preparation for pleats, right?

That's right, as the glue ages it will still work well for almost everything except hanging something overhead. I generally write the day I bought the glue on the side of the can.

Yes, you can use Top and Trim contact adhesive to glue foam together.

There are other contact adhesives that are intended for foam to foam applications. The one on the left is K-Grip, and the one on the right is called Kwik-Spray. Kwik-Spray comes in two different formulations, 225 which is a heavier viscosity and 220 which is not as heavy. I like the 220.

They can be sprayed from a regular spray gun, but I like to spray them from a Critter sprayer. The reason I like the Critter sprayer is that the container is just a Mason jar. If I want to change glue, all I have to do is change the Mason jar and put a lid and cap on the glue I'm not using.

The reason I like these foam to foam glues is they have a lot less fumes to them, they don't need to be perfectly dry to put the two pieces of foam together, and they aren't as aggressive as the top and trim adhesive but still hold foam together just as well. I use these glues to glue fabric to sew foam for that reason.
