Topic: Attaching Fabric

Our car requires a pimp hat.  We're looking at some sweet hot pink 2.5" knap faux fur.

Can anyone share some previously successful, tech-passing methods for attaching fabric to bodywork?

Tech just cares that it will not blow off during the race and cause an issue.  Have you tried the fabric spray glue they use for headliners?  Or maybe even tile adhesive?

3M super77 spray adhesive. I've had fabric attached to my car with this since 2010. good idea to wrap it around leading edges of panels to keep it from peeling off

We used Gorilla Glue and it worked great.

E6000.  That sh!t sticks to everything.  Clear works well, the black industrial stuff really never comes off.  Just don't get it on you.

Also, this stuff purports to be pretty good:

Re: Attaching Fabric

If you want to kill any questions from TEO as to whether it's "good enough", use Ekobond E610. Non-flammable, non-hazardous, and people use it to apply cloth skin to certified aircraft. You can buy it from Aircraft Spruce. Service life is often over a decade so you might find yourself cutting sheet metal just to get that fur off.
