    Default Glue for under bonnet carpet

    I recall a thread on renewing the bonnet insulation and wondered which glue is best. Lance at DS Motors will be doing it with my help on our '74 Special.

    I am scraping off the old glue which is going fine and thought I might paint penetrol on for the glue to bind with.

    Anyway, someone might know of the best "contact" glue.

    Thanks, John Paas.

    Hi John

    I replaced my bonnet lining recently. I just used Kwik Grip Advanced... it's white, dries clear and so far is holding up fine. I just scraped it on the felt with the scraper provided, generously, did a pre fit, removed and let it tack then stuck it back on again... instant bond.

    Permatex carpet and hood lining spray is the best product i know of as a 'glue in a spray tin'.

    For acrylic paint, mask first as the solvents are agressive.

    Thankyou for your responses. I'll toss it over with Lance and John,
    I spent part of today scraping and thoroughly cleaning the underside and even gave the aluminium corner plates that have to come off a bit of a polish.

    Thanks, John.

    Forget the Penetrol, it's just another American additive like STP & Wynn's. Only for the gullible.

    Icon14 Sikkaflex adhesives - bulk tubes.

    If you check in the Sikkaflex range of adhesives there are some specialised automotive sealant/adhesives to just about stick anything to anything and do exactly what they claim.

    Regards

    Penetrol is a oil paint adhesion and flow promoter. Nothing to do with sticking sound or heat insulation. I can vouch for the effectiveness of pentrol having just used it, mixed with enamel paint, to repaint the doors and trims in my Son's house. I'm fairly sure penetrol is an Australian product.

    If you mean permatex then I'm surprised. Since they are a well regarded company and I've used many of their sealant products on numerous engine rebuilds with great success.

    ta.

    Makes the paint flow goes miles further too. Application is a breeze.

    I painted 18 doors both sides plus frames,trims and 8 largish awning windows frames sashes and trims, all with two coats and used less than 12 litres of oil paint!

    I mixed 10% by volume pentrol with the paint.

    Door were taken off hinges, laid horizontal and painted with a very low nape mohair roller. The frames and trims etc were painted with a brush and "laid off" with a mini mohair roller.

    Penetrol lubricates the brush/roller application and helps the enamel flow. Brush and roller marks tend to flow out so you don't have texture inconsistently. The paint flows into all the fissures of the timber so the gum marks and grain disappear.

    All surfaces were sanded with an oribital sander with 240grade silicon carbide paper prior to paint and bare timber spot primed with dulux prepcoat oil primer.

    There is a flow promoter for acrylic paints which I tried but didn't see much difference. I wouldn't bother with acrylic flow promoters.
