Anybody use 3m super 77 adhesive?

I'm going to go try and glue my new seat foam UPS brought yesterday afternoon to the frame in a bit and this appears to be what people generally use. I will either have to sit on it or weight it somehow because the foam is tight.

One of the last tnt's on my 289 may she rest in pieces. It ran in the
high 11's low 12's when it was at its best.

Are you going to attach it with hog rings? Is the glue just to help position it?

I've used it often on projects involving foam. It works well, you just have to let it tack up a bit before sticking parts together. What year seats? I used it on th back in materials and other parts before I installed the covers on my seats.teh foam is usually held in with listing rods hog ringed to the frame.

This is for my 79 f150 bench seat. The foam was cast with a skin covering on it so the adhesive won't soak in. I'm trying to dry fit the seat cover first and I'm there except for one corner which is going to require some heat for it to cooperate.

My old foam came off with virtually no resistance but it had indications where it had been originally glued. It has no other attachment other than the channel it fits into and the seat cover holding it down. As tight as this new cover is and considering that the foam sits down into channels in the frame, not really sure it needs to be glued to begin with but it can't hurt.
