Hi guys, what's the best glue to use when covering door cards (masonite) with vinyl?
I'll drink to that query. I've put in one door card bought from vw suppliers and as our bus lives outside in the very hot and very cold Riverina climate the glued inside edges all came adrift. Been using builders adhesive to try and get the small fold over to behave itself.

Spray contact, you can use it with a brush
Where's Necro when you need him
Contact adhesive (also available in a spray can like Splitbus said ^), apply to both surfaces and allow it to 'tack off' (partly dry but still tacky) before pressing the surfaces together - its all on the side of the can
theres also a version for headlinings that claims better resistance to heat . Allowing to dry as per Garth s note is important for any contact glue.
ENSURE that you have plastic in place between cavity and card.
Also a good [essential] idea to seal the card .
Don't use spray adhesive it tends to stay tacky and fails
Shelly's contact works but be sure to let the sides dry to tack B4 sticking.
Shelly s have a new water cleanup contact that supposedly is the ducks nuts I am using it now and its much nicer / easier to use but as its a new product i cannot say about longevity.
Not a spray can, sprayable contact in a tin, use a brush to apply
Ahh ok, you can get it in a spray can too, thought thats what you meant...
Sellys quick grip I've found to be OK.
Spray on each part and as others have said, let it go tacky before putting the pieces together. It doesn't seem to have a lot of strength so needs a good bit of surface area. Doesn't work with plastic bits
I found Selleys quick grip to be great when I reboarded my door cards. I have used the spray but it's only good for light duty holding, I've found using the stuff out the can is best.
Tip: rather than buying heaps of small paint brushes for each use I found using those magic eraser blocks cut into pointed wedges were great for applying the glue. I found mine in a long block for $2.80 from daiso the Japanese $2.80 shop
