I used contact cement...key is to let it sit up the entire time. It'll seem like it dry when you go to install it...it's not!!!! Locks in place upon contact. I have had problems with bubbling if used too soon. Nothing a heavy roller can't fix (rent one for the day from home depot or such)

Curious how you would custom fit the Lonseal flooring (or pirelli for that matter)? Cut with an exacto? Roughly how much $$ per sq foot? Might be a good option in a couple years on the Supthen. Thanks

Create a template of your cockpit and transfer it to the sheet of vinyl. I used 1/8" Lauan plywood and ripped it into 4" lengths. I created a perimeter template with it and used hot glue to keep it together, then layed it on top of my sheet of vinyl and cut the vinyl with the a utility knife. I used the same knife to cut the shapes in the lauan, it cuts very easily. For the radius areas or tricky curved areas on the perimeter I just sanded the lauan to get the shape. If you need more info, let me know, I think I have pics of the process somewhere.

too thin to just lay in, and it would slide very easy.
I have it in my mudroom and my work out room.

I found this in a car catalog I started getting. Less expensive, looks very similar, and comes in larger rolls to avoid seems. No personal experience with it, but looks like a less expensive alternative.
