    Grip mat on ultra 150 keep pulling up

    I have an 01 ultra 150. Just got a new set of black tip grip mats last summer. They are pulling up already. Does anyone know of a glue I can use to hold them down. Honestly, thought about getting 3m double sided tape and using that... What are your ideas?

    3M Marine adhesive or Gorilla Glue will work. but no matter what you use if the prep work is not done right nothing will hold. I used Acetone after pulling the mats up to remove every bit of glue. After cleaning vigorously I used alcohol to clean and then let it dry. It should look as if there was never any mats on the paint before adding new glue or mats.

    No use dap contact cement which is what your supposed to glue thr mats down with. You can buy it at your local home depo or lowes. Do not use gorilla glue!

    Do NOT use 3M 5200, you'll NEVER get them off again. Gorilla glue swells and won't lay down flat. Use contact cement. Look for a cement that is highly flammable and hazardous to your health--it works a lot better than the water soluble crap.
