crownver This could be a problem. (Not for me, I am in PA) From yourautotrim.com
"THIS ITEM CANNOT BE SHIPPED TO THE FOLLOWING STATES:

California
Delaware
Maryland
New Jersey
Connecticut
Rhode Island "


Nor will they. ship glue across the border to Canada. This is part of the problem.

Don't forget Dan, there are some of us out here that don't have access to the products you recommend. The only place I have found to buy any kind of trim glue is Ebay, and only after I asked why the Ebay store didn't have it listed. He listed it for me but the price came to about $90 gallon for a brand that nobody's ever heard of. I did get some from an upholstery shop, but never thought of asking him to order me a gallon. I will do that next time.

Also please remember, some of us are trying to do these projects on extremely limited budgets.

I want to thank you Dan for the help you've given me by answering questions on this board. Made me want to try things I've never done before. I hope you continue because there's always a need for expertise such as yours.

I've got the $50 and want to do it right. Maybe I'll have to rethink things. Thanks.

DanTwoLakes I'm saying a gallon, because that's the smallest container I have ever seen it come in. Let's put it this way, if you were spraying it, maybe two fillings of the spray gun's cup. It might take more if you brush it. Why not find an upholstery shop and have them order you a gallon? That should save you some money.

If you use half of it, all of it, or none of it and throw the rest away are you still not in the same place financially? If you can find an upholstery shop that will sell you less than a gallon for $30, and you need more to complete your project, where are you at? If this was a question of spending $5 more to make your paint job, transmission, engine, or whatever there is to spend on your project of a lifetime, would you spend the $5.00 or not? This, my friends, is the definition of a no brainer.


Why is the interior of your car, where you will spend 100% of your time when the car is finished, the least important thing you spend your money on?

If I had a nickle for every $10,000 paint job on a car with a $500 interior that I have seen, I would be one rich sum*****.
Ok, I see your point. FWIW, we're talking more like $50 with shipping. There's a part of me that really hates the waste, but maybe that's what I need to do. It would be helpful to know how much I'd need, but maybe that's an "it depends" question.

You'd want to glue the entire surface of both the vinyl and the whatever you're gluing it to, along with the back,

5window Ok so assuming I can find an auto upholstery shop who will sell me the DAP adhesive, how much do I need? Counting headliner glued to foam and foam glued to board, doors, kickpanels and the sides and rear of the cab I have about 25 square feet. If I use it as a brush/roller on, will a quart be sufficient?

udtoy Thanks guys. I can always count on getting the real scoop from this forum!
02-02-2013 09:37 AM
DanTwoLakes You don't have to do that. It does not damage PVC foamboard.
02-02-2013 08:50 AM
beachbum jim you dont have to worry about it. I have been using DAP HHR for many years with many different materials PVC included with no problems. Im sure Dan will agree. Regular backer board, even the so called waterproof will warp. I ordered some for a non automotive project and it was delivered warped.

udtoy I inquired of DAP last week on the Top & Trim Adhesive for use on Sintra board (PVC Sheets) which I am using for all of my interior panels. Jessie, one of their Product Specialists responded with: Unfortunately, we do not recommend the DAP Landau Top & Trim for applications involving PVC or plastics and it may damage some of these surfaces. Testing is recommended before using in a large scale application. Dan, I just read in this post and in a previous thread that you use this on PVC to foam, fabric, vinyl, and/or leather without an issue. Based on DAP's response, I was about to go out and buy traditional backer board and redo my panels... please tell me I don't have to do this!
