    Weldwood contact cement. Its all about the prep to make them stay.

    Yes try to remove all the old glue from the deck and the mat. I use acetone it seams to dissolve the old glue without damage to the gel coat. Test a spot first. Then apply a thin coat of contact cement to both surfaces and let dry 5-10 minuets then attach. The cleaner the better.

    Dap Gel Contact Cement
    • Lowes
    • Home Depot

    Make sure you place some weight on the part to be repaired so it will help in place well. A brick, small weight, something to hold it down.

    Buy one of these or something similar, it takes the old glue right off.

    I replaced my mats with Hydro Turf. I used the Weldwood contact cement . I cleaned the surface and used a fine sand paper and sanded before I put the glue on it worked out very good. You can use the blue trim tape you would use in your house for painting and place around the area you want to get sanded and glued. After you get the mat glued back down you can remove the tape. This allows you to get the glue all the way to the edge and makes the job a lot neater.

    Now that is just to damn cool. I can't count the times I have either made a mess, or not covered the entire area. Simple fix for my rather simple mind... THANKS moultrie!

    Here we have a J-car outlet chain where they sell spray-on cotact adhesive.

    I mask it off, and spray it evenly, follow the instructions, and it sticks like a tick to a tramps tes!cle.

    Make sure that when you take the mat back to the fixed on part that it is clean and dry(MUST BE TOTALLY DRY) and carefully taken back too.

    Dont stretch the mat in anyway as you fix it down, but place it back from the inside edge working to the outside edge. Keep pressure on it after replacing. I use a carrier bag full of sand so it is heavy and pressed as evenly as possible... then leave overnight at least.

    In the morning, its as stuck down as.

    As is said prior.... PREPARATION IS THE KEY.
