I have the full carpet set to install on my 86 coupe.
What did the factory use for glue/adhesive for the pieces that are glued under the dash and the carpet covered plastic pieces that run along the center counsel.
I have tried two sided carpet tape and am afraid that it will not hold in the summer heat.
Someone must have faced the same issue and found a product that works.
Thanks

I have no clue what was used, but how about that spray on 3M contact cement??
I have some 3M contact adhesive tried it and did not think it was strong enough for carpet. I am looking for something that is the closer to the original stuff.

I was told that the factory used the 3M interior contact cement and that is what i have always used. They had the liquid jars and used guns to apply it. I find the spray cans just easier to deal with on limited usage. Make sure you get the stronger one since i found large chain stores carry a weaker version...It was accident that i found out there are 2 types.
