    what is the best adhesive for hydroturfing an old ski?

    I'm looking to clean up my 650sx and get some new plush padding and turf installed. I see blowsion sells their own turf adhesive and they claim that its the "nastiest adhesive we could find". Any reviews on this stuff? I see weldwood referenced on this site frequently as well.

    Yep Dap Woodweld. Basically it's a high strength rubber cement. I usually put two heavy coats on both surfaces, as some surfaces will soak in the dap decently. For a good bond, both sides need to be dry and tacky to the touch. If it doesn't feel tacky, put another coat on.

    I use 3M Super 77 spray contact cement. Worked well so far.

    3M makes a more permanent spray adhesive called Super 99 too. But it still doesn't compare to the Dap Weldwood stuff.
