what adhesive glue to use

thinking about making my own door panels. what do you guys use as a spray adhesive? Say if I wanted to use some foam inserts and vinyl as the cover?

Most pros use DAP landau top and trim adhesive, or 3-M spray grade top and trim adhesive. I like the DAP because it is less expensive and works just a s good. Read this Wiki article: http://www.crankshaftcoalition.com/w...ntact_adhesive

One more thing: You will not find this at Home Depot or any other building supply place. You will find it at upholstery supply houses. Try to find it locally, because it can't be shipped to a lot of states.

DAP landau top and trim adhesive is absolutely the best. There is nothing that comes out of a rattle can that is worth a s*&^. I just wish my 5 gallon can had not gone bad.

Do a search for the DAP product and you'll find sources and even a discount code. Additionally, another search will give you quite a few threads on building door panels.

i use the regular dap contact cement, but hear the trim glue is better
buy a harbor freight $19 canister paint spray gun and fill it full of contact cement
it will last for yrs without cleaning
i have an old discard spray gun from our shop, the only thing i do to it is plug the vent with a pop rivet in between uses

The best bet for a gun to spray contact adhesive with is to use a siphon feed external mix gun with the cup on the bottom. Mine cost $15 from Harbor Freight, has a 2.2MM nozzle and works great. If it ever takes a dump on me, it will be cheap to replace.

BTW, don't use anything but HHR (high heat resistant) top and trim adhesive on your interior unless you like having all come undone in a hot car. YOU CAN"T BUY THIS STUFF AT HOME DEPOT.

NO NO NO. You can't buy this stuff at any home improvement store, it is an UPHOLSTERY SUPPLY and is found at upholstery supply shops. This is top and trim adhesive for high heat applications, not what you glue countertops together with. Did you read the wiki article? When you ask a question and you get referred to an article which will tell you everything you need to know, why wouldn't you read it? http://www.crankshaftcoalition.com/w...ntact_adhesive This is what we're talking about: http://www.yourautotrim.com/noname37.html

California is one of the states you cant get bulk sprayable high temp adhesive. 3M 90 will work although expensive, Performance Hi-Temp Trim Spray Adhesive is a good alternative.

Performance is about the best aerosol out there, and it's not that expensive. The cans are 16 oz. Performance Hi-Temp Trim Spray Adhesive

I see you mentioned you're in Cali, where nobody ships DAP to... there's somebody on ebay in socal that had a couple of gallons for sale yesterday, but it isn't coming up now - either they sold out, or the ebay police got them. Keep your eyes peeled though, it could come up again. You could go by an upholstery shop and see if they'll sell you a gallon of it. We generally buy it in 5gal cans, as do most other shops, so a local shop might be able to pour out a gallon or half gallon to sell you, but it may not be cheap due to what they have to go through to get it there in the first place there in commiefornia.

Don't waste your $ on 3m, you will have to redo it again soon. DAP HHR ONLY. Do it once, do it right.

3-M spray grade top and trim adhesive is very good stuff in bulk containers used in a spray gun. There is nothing wrong with it, but it is more expensive than DAP.
