    Indoor/Outdoor Carpet glue, from lowes for a few bucks, spread it on with a trough, give it about 4 hours and its like a rock. Spray on 3m is expensive, and thats what you need to use.

    My experience with the 3M adhesive spray is that it is messy, and isnt very good at what it is supposed to do. I have used just plain wood glue, and smeared it around with my fingers to the box in a pretty thin layer, and then applied the carpet and had wonderful results. However I also like to use contact cement but you have to make sure that you apply the cement to both sides, and let it DRY! Then apply the surfaces to each other. This method yeilds excellend results.

    The spray adhesive work good. I prefer to use flooring adhesive, its a little more "sticky" relatively cheap too.

    Mmm k? 3m spray-on is all that I've used, and it's excellent. Spreading woodclue around sounds like an arts and crafts project..
