willys36@aol.com Just stay away from the water based stuff. I nominate it for the worst consumer product in any category.

DanTwoLakes If your contact adhesive dries out, you can re-activate it by simply spraying or brushing another coat over the top of the first coat. You can even re-activate some really old contact adhesives this way.

channel49 I use DAP Weldwood trim adhesive and it has never failed me. The only complaint is that there is a fairly small window of time to work with it but other than that its kickass.

willys36@aol.com Whatever you do, avoid the Weldwood water based contact adhesive for ANYTHING. It sticks to nothing and will not adhere to itself, no matter how wet or dry. It is the worst product I have ever tried to use for ANYTHING!

The only thing I recommend 3-M 77 for is a paperweight. I've never had any luck with it as a glue.

There are other top and trim adhesives out there that work very well on cars. 3-M top and trim adhesive is first rate.

willys36@aol.com 3M77 is great for temporary uses; attaching paper templates to wood carvings that I need to saw out on my band saw for example. Pattern peels off easily after sawing. 3M99 is ok for home craft project needing a 'permanent' adhesive but not for hi-demand apps like car work. DAP top adhesive is the only thing to use anywhere on a car. Not legal in Kalifornia but my daughter in Colorado often sends me gifts of one sort or another. I appreciate her so much.

oh well I would have rather it cost $12 locally for a quart but it just wasn't going to happen......
Brushing is ok. Avoid any puddles of the glue on whatever you are gluing.

If you have never brushed it on before, you may get strings similar to melted mozarella(don't know the technical term for it).

DanTwoLakes No, you can brush it on, roll it on, or spray it on. Just make sure to coat both surfaces of whatever you're gluing together. I prefer spraying it, but I brush it in places the spray gun would make a big mess.
