vinyl glue recommendation

Hi all,

My 87 300D Turbo's vinyl is lifting from the edges in certain places, esp near the top part of the interior doors where it meets the rubber window gasket. Does anyone have any good recommendations on what type of glue to use?

Good doublesided "scotch tape" will do the trick.

I used goop and lots of binder clips to hook the vinyl to the aluminum on my b pillar. It is still holding a year later.

Have to think about how it will hold up in heat.

I replaced the mirrors in my visors with some good ones from PNP. the old ones were broke at the hinges, and the drivers was falling out. had a rubber band holding it in.

Did the up grade, and thought I was smart using Hot Glue. well it worked really well for the past yr or so. last week it was over 90 deg and much hotter in the car. the mirror on the drivers side was almost hanging by the wires and ready to fall out. I had the visor in the down position.

back to the drawing board. maybe JB weld?

I also have the overhead panel the visors fasten to, having the vinyl to start to peel away. the right side is bad, and around the dome light.

I used contact cement around the dome light a couple yrs ago, but it isn`t the right stuff. I wonder what MB used 25 yrs ago?

there is that 3M spray contact cement used for the hood pads. 8090 I think the # is. don`t know if it can be brushed on.

one the 123 when that vinyl is peeling away, IMO the best looking fix you can do is just remove it. underneath the vinyl is painted and looks really nice with no vinyl on it.

just a different approach to it. one of my cars is from TX and the vinyl was unrecoverable.
