    carpeting

    on the g/f's box i want to carpet it. nice and simple. i don't want to mess with the bondo and the sanding and the painting. the question i had was what do you use to secure it to the box? i've used 3M spray adhesive before, is this what i should be using or is there something better? i don't want the old lady to have a ****** box.

    Re: carpeting

    contact cement > than 3M... i think 3M also might be a little more expensive too. as long as you pull it tight, you could even use a glue gun.
