Is the glue you are using a contact cement or something else?

If it's contact cement, the key is to apply to both surfaces
AND let it dry first, then attach.

If it's not a contact cement, it probably should be.

I have tried a generic upholsetry spay glue but the board basically absorbs it and the vinyl peels off after 24 hours.


I used a product called K-Grip 460 in my restoration of Sophy. Used it for interior trim panels, the carpet, some of the weatherstrips, and the headliner. It is a really good, high temperature contact adhesive that was recommended to my by a professional upholsterer and certified VW nut (some of you know Jonce Fancher). Worked great for me. I have also used K-Grip 707 with comes in an aerosol can. The 460 comes in a quart can. I used a cheap spray gun to apply it to the large parts and a disposable brush for the weatherstrips.


It is made by Maple Leaf Sales, Ltd.

Any decent upholstery shop should be able to get it for you.
