Thanks for the responses guys! I got some good news today from two local upholestry shops that install vinyl tops. Both will sell out the cements that they use by the quart. The closet shop uses 3M contact cement for EVERYTHING they do (They do marine applications as well) and swear by the 3M stuff ($15 a qt.) The other shop is alittle further away and will sell the DAP Landau contact cement for $20 a qt. Both shops say these products have been both brushed and sprayed on different jobs.
The funny part is, both shops say putting a vinyl top on is pretty easy and straight forward if you take your time and think ahead on your steps.... but both charge $350-$400 just for labor to install a top. Vinyl top price is in addition to the labor. Unreal.

Thanks again. I'll be tackling this job May week 1, after I paint it April week 3.
