I am installing a new interior kit from Rimmer Bros in my Poseiden greenTR8. I kept the original golden tan color but opted for the leather seats and plain door panels rather than the original check patterned cloth. The carpets and panels require gluing and I haven't been pleased with any of the trim adhesives I've used in the past. Anybody find anything that really works well?

I used a 3M spray adhesive (number 08074) and thought it easy to use & control with suitable hold. Practice spraying and note the ways the spray tip can be turned to change the pattern so you get a thin lacy result (or whatever you are trying for).

3m same here. It's strong, but does give you a little time to adjust the item that you're gluing.

I just finised installing new carpets and found the 3m product good as well. There is two different strength products. I used the light one for the headliner and the heavy duty for the side carpets. I got both at UAP.

Thanks, guys; 3M it is. I bought a can of the Super adhesive this morning and will use it next week. Thanks again.
