Thank you.

I am now planning on using formica rather than cardboard for the backing of the side panels and door panels on my 1954 Suburban. You have confirmed my strategy.

The original-style card-board (backing) deformed from moisture.

Do you have a suggestion for the type of adhesive I could/should use to attach the vinyl material to the formica panels?

Thanks

Just plain old spray adhesive (3M Brand) you can get at your FLAPS. Find center point front to back. Spray a 2-3” strip down the middle front to back. Find center on your vinyl and spray a 2-3” strip down the middle front to back. Carefully mate the surface working slowly. Then you can work in 4-5” strips from center to outer edge until reaching the farthest point + 1/2” to turn over the edge. Then do the same from center to the other edge. Pull and straighten wrinkles as you go. If you mess up you can use steam to reactivate the adhesive. Slow and steady is the name of the game. Good luck.

The FLAPS has some good adhesive and some not so good (fails early) adhesive. I'll try to remember to get the number of the good 3M stuff when I get home.
