Dap (Weldwood) spray grade Landau Top adhesive. Do not be tempted to use anything from a rattle can.

You can order it online from several sources, but the hazardous shipping fee will kill you. Best bet is to find a local interior repair facility or a firm that supplies those facilities. I have ordered a bunch of stuff from these people, but I picked up my can of DAP at a supplier in the Dallas area when I was up there recently. I see that Perfect Fit now carries it in gallon cans.....that might not be so bad $$$$.

Don't have any experience with 3M contact adhesive. I do know the DAP stuff is rated for high temp use. That would be a concern I would have with using anything else. How is it going to handle the high temp?
