I will not have access to a spray gun adhesive system.

At the moment, my local choices seem to be:
3M yellow super trim adhesive (spray can)
NAPA/Permatex Heavy Duty Carpet and Headline Adhesive (spray can)
Weldwood Contact Cement (brush-on)
Loctite 200 Spray Adhesive
3M Super 77
a vinyl supplier also suggested 3M 80-which I could order in aerosol cans

Advice/commentary would be appreciated. Thanks
3M spray adhesive is great for headliners and vinyl . It is fast tacking and you should have a helper to hold up the material asyou spray in one squarefoot sections. a small soft paint roller will help keep out air bubbles. I have 35 yrs as an autobody tech,
