    I have some carbon fiber look vinyl for the interior of my roof and doors. I tried 3m spray adhesive to adhere the vinyl to the aluminum and once the sun hit it, and it got hot, it began to sag. My friend suggested gorilla glue. It worked, but was messy and left lumps after it dried, not smooth. I'm not totally happy with it. Is there a better product out there that you have used for this application?

    Take your panels & material to a local upholstery shop and ask them what they would charge to just shoot some glue on the panel and lay the fabric down. I bet it will be cheaper or the same as if you went out and bought a few cans of the good quality glue and just did it yourself. Plus it will save you a bunch of time.

    I had a friend who wanted to vinyl cover the two side panels & roof panel on his 4 seat buggy. He had the fabric and I suggested a little hole in the wall shop I have used many, many times. He took what he had into them and for $40 the guy shot the panels and laid out the fabric. I think he trimmed it out and cut the dzus tab holes himself when he got home. But it was cheap & headache free to have them do it.

    Use 3M 90 High Strength Spary glue and follow instructions perfect. That has worked many times for me and its hot here in Elsinore. Has to be the 90 though.
