I watched a couple videos and read a few how tos. They all use the squeeze staplers, not like the office ones but to staple things to a flat surface.
But they just stapled it right in

It originally had staples...theres a plastic cover that goes over the whole bottom side that hides them. The old staples are still in there from the old vinyl covering.
I will look for that glue tho.

Sloppy sloppy work by them. The adhesive that I posted has a strength of bond stronger than the actual materials themselves. Meaning when fully dried you're never going to be able to get them apart without cutting them off. Stapled you'll still need to use it or you'll have bubbles of air form over the years underneath, no matter how hard you try.

If you really insist on bonding the two you can always plastic weld them I'm sure it would take. Just be careful not to burn the house down I have no idea if you can plastic weld that shit!

Buying a 2wd truck is like buying a tranny hooker. Sure you'll get the job done and all your buddies will say it looks good but at the end of the day you're still fucked...

Haha, I plan on never buying a FWD. RWD and AWD are all I'll ever use, for now.

2WD does fine for me, unless I'm parked on ice. Gotta get me some kitty litter too.

all my previous rangers were 2wd, because at the time, 4x4's were a lot more in price and insurance costs.

My last..my first ranger was a 1995 2.3L 5speed, reg cab 2wd...it got me thru 3 yrs of highschool and 3 more thru college. Yes sometimes it sucked in winter, but you learn to manage. And i loved it in the summer!
I miss driving a stick shift truck too!


It was also a texas truck..no rust anywhere..


The only mods i did were a chest box in the back, cb radio, cd player and 10" kicker sub, bedlined bed and rails, bucket seats. I replaced my driver side with the armrest with one from an explorer.
I was a poor highschool and college kid...wasnt even aware FRF existed..thank god or i would have been even more broke!
