I am confused about headliner adhesive.  I am adhering #767 headliner material to new wood overhead paneling,  I've gotten a couple of answers from Sailrite over the phone.  First 3M Trim Adhesive and then 3M77.  I just viewed the video demonstrating installation of vinyl headliners, and the gentleman used 3M Trim Adhesive.  You newest catalog states to use 77 with non-foam backed vinyl. This is going to be a very time consuming project.  I want to insure i use the correct adhesive.  Can you please confirm which product is best for the #767 non-foam backed vinyl on a direct overhead wood surface?  Thank you.  Buzz

Hi Buzz,
The answer is that both will work. But our preference is definitely the 3M General Trim Adhesive. It will hold longer and Jim Grant has tested this product thoroughly in the process of re-lining the overhead of his Islander 37.
Thanks, Matt
