  • Best spray glue?

    I used the 3M spray can glue and it didn't work as ggod as I hoped, I did my door panels and the upper Grey vinyl I used was a little thicker than I should have used and its not holding up is good. Is there anything stronger I can get or does anybody have any ideas. I am thinking about just spreading liquid nail on it?

    We just did the entire interior in Rie's car for WestFest and we used some stuff called Tac-It. It was great! Supposed to be about the strongest stuff you can get. Try a local upholstery fabric store. They should have it.

    I'll be downloading all of my build-up and WestFest pictures tomorrow and I'll post some and show you what we did... Rie did the headliner and it looks beautiful!!! We changed her car from grey stock Fiero to custom tan and black.... It was a big hit at the show!

        Bobby,

        You might also ask them about a different kind of vinyl. They have a vinyl that has a different back on it that is more flexible and better for headliners and contoured door panels and stuff. Since we did custom door panels we didn't have to worry about it, but the guy at the shop suggested it if we were doing the headliner in vinyl. At first we were going to, but we would have had to glue the vinyl to pad and then glue that to the headliner board. Since the painter and other upholsterer got us behind we just went with the regular padded headliner material.. We don't regret it at all.. It was easy to do and looks perfect!

            Here you go, Bobby. Here are the pics of our buildup of Rie's car... You went sort of along the same lines we did on the door panels, including filling in the ridge along the top, but we wanted to change the line of the door panel from the stock Fiero over/under design. The dash was also supposed to be padded and covered but the upholstery guy kept our parts for 6 weeks and never did it! Kept me hanging till the night before we had to leave and I finally went and got the stuff around midnight and just painted it up to match the interior. Interior was originally grey...

                The color is fairly standard on several new cars.. Scion made a special edition xB last year and called it Hot Lava. Mercedes has a color that is very close and they call it Paprika. Honda calls it Sunset Orange Effect.... Basically it is a very metallic orange and it shines in the sun like you wouldn't believe!

                    that's a great paint job bro. i also like the stripe on the door panel. i suck when it comes to choosing color schemes!
                    re the thread--when i was building tour buses we always used industrial grade contact cement. i think they have something similar in an aerosol can--spray both surfaces and voila......the shit is there permanently!!

                      You built tour buses? Cool! I've lived on quite a few! haha Got any pictures?

                      Marie looked for just the right color for months before we finally decided on this one. I am very pleased with it! The interior was my idea and she was skeptical at first but loves it after seeing it. One day we'll finally get the dash padded and covered like was supposed to be done this time.. Or maybe I'll just throw another dash in it.

                        well, we didn't build them from the ground up or anything, we converted older model 10's into 15's. that was back in 90-91. i only helped, i wasn't the brains behind it. it was cool though, stripping the whole bus--just think what an old standard greyhound bus looked like--including the bathroom and windows and everything. then we would cut it in half through the window posts, extend it up about 10" and weld in the square tubing. then the whole outside gets new sheet aluminum that was polished. new windows. then we would paint them. i never got to do that part damnit. i tell you, we had this dude that would come in afterwards and do all the trim painting and goldleaf and such.....all free hand. i wish i would've taken some pics but i didn't. being in nashville, of course i got to meet all sorts of country music artists--which i hate country music, but also got to meet some rockers--cinderella, winger, bullet boys, gloria estefan. ha ha, speaking of gloria estefan, you remember hearing about that bus accident she had where she hurt her back.....that was ours. she promptly traded in the eagle 15 to two prevost. damn buses were like 90k each without any interior whatsoever except the driver's seat. it was more fun building the interiors anyway.

                          I just came out here two years ago from Nashville. I'm one of those country music artists and I'm sure you would hate my very traditional country music! haha... We always use MCIs too. I think I've got some pictures around here somewhere...

                          This is the only one I can find right now. It's a newer model MCI 45-footer. The older 40-footer is the one that had the top cut off and raised a foot. This was when Prevost was just coming out and everyone thought it was one of those instead of an MCI. This picture is when a guy from Japan came over for a couple of weeks for some shows.

                            I would try to use a different glue. 3M makes two kinds. One is to be used for vinyl tops and will not seperate under high heat conditions.
