    viewtopic.php?f=89&t=10341&p=42459#p42459

    Yellow #08001 formula for adhering all types of rubber weatherstripping to car doors and trunks. An excellent adhesive for bonding engine gaskets.BUT SEVERAL OIL TYPES AND CLEANING SOLVENTS WEAKEN IT OVER TIME
    [​IMG] ID SUGGEST YOU NEVER USE IT

    Black formula # 08008 OR 08011,READ THE LABELS THEY ARE DIFFERENT is a strong, flexible, rubbery adhesive that withstands vibration and extreme temperature variations. Primarily designed for use on t-tops, moon-roofs and sun-roofs.

    the BLACK ADHESIVE FROM 3M OR PERMATEX IS MUCH STRONGER,THAN THE YELLOW ADHESIVE and far less likely to peel loose in heat or get dissolved with oil

    use a good solvent like ACETONE to clean BEFORE USING THE ADHESIVE
    TAKE THE TIME TO READ DIRECTIONS CAREFULLY BEFORE YOU USE THE ADHESIVE

    this PERMATEX weather strip adhesive is the best product I've found for small stubborn areas automotive carpet, that are hard to anchor and weather striping door gaskets etc.
    BTW when carpets NEW or COLD it is resistant to being easily forced into matching curves and contours, like where the floor meets the trans tunnel, a HAIR DRYER can be used to WARM and mold the carpet much more easily but don,t use a HEAT GUN, it is far too hot and will cause plastic interior parts and carpet to warp , shrink or be damaged, just be aware to work in smaller areas and remember contact type adhesive glues and heat can be dangerous with fumes and some types are very flammable
