kso, you are wrong with most of what you posted. "uneven application" of the glue will not show through vinyl even if you apply it with a brush, and DAP and 3-M are the standards of the industry for interior work. "normal stores"? You don't find this contact adhesive in home improvement stores, you find it in places that cater to people who do upholstery work. Like this place: 1 Gal. DAP Weldwood HHR Contact Cement

thanks..

kso Adhesives used to be a simple thing. You went to the hardware store and got contact cement.

No longer, especially if you're in CA which I hope your not. Almost no adhesive spray or brush-on you can get from a store shelf will hold even the lightest materials if there is any sun shine on it, all will creep or drop off entirely. DAP brand is the worst, 3M is at-least so-so. That's not to say there isn't usable glue here, it's just not economical for normal stores to maintain the permits required to have it on premises.

So just make sure that (a) you buy in a state other than California, (b) you get yellow solvent-based stuff, NOT white water-base and (c) be able to fold the material over onto a hidden surface and then staple the edge there if at all possible.

That said, the stuff in the pic above is what I'd use, or what's called "trim adhesive" in spray cans. Know that uneven application may show through as bumps in your material so spray is best.

glue/adhesive to use ..

Hello.. I'm not versed in the correct wording for this stuff ,so . tho. I'm sure it's in the search and been said before.. I'm shoot'n blanks

well I am installing a sub box in the center console of my fiero. and have to use a spacer ring(s) wood rings made of sawdust board/fiberboard it's finer than partical board..
anyways to match the interior that light gray and red.. I bought some vinyl from joann's fabrics.. in a red thats a little darker but close enough..
my question is.. what to use to glue the vinyl to the wood ring..
gorrilla glue?? adhesive???
the ends will be hidden, but the outer face of the rings will be seen..
should I glue that face area first let dry.. then cut and fold the ends over and glue that??
the area that will be seen will be at most 1.5" outerface of the ring. the sides are covered by the box it'll up against and the other side the speaker..
thanks for help on this...
