Can I glue down pad w/contact cement in non-wear area of motorhome?

I'm replacing padding under naugahyde in the sleeping area of my motorhome. It's not a 'wear area' where anyone will walk - simply provides padding over the existing fiberglass. Any problems with using contact cement to glue down the pad?

Thanks in advance, wep

Welcome to the forums! Contact cement must be dried on both surfaces before you make "contact" with them. I would prefer to use something like 3M spray adhesive. It will adhere almost instantly and won't allow movement. I am assuming this is to hold the padding in place until you get the nauga in place and stapled.

I like the spray adhesives as well; I keep a can on the shelf for all kinds of sticking needs.

Why not just use pad adhesive? It isn't expensive and it would be safer to use in an enclosed place.

When there's a product made specifically for the task, it's almost always my first thought.
