    If you want another style change them out. May take some time getting the old glue off...use low setting heat gun and solvent after. 3m makes a glue that you speread on...let it set...it dries fast,and gets tacky, then you apply mat. Wherever you purchase the mats..they should carry the glue as well.

    Removing the mats is a nightmare. What does not work - heat, lacquer thinner, acetone, any form of glue remover, etc. I'll burn my ski down before ever doing that job again.

    I scraped what I could with a spackle knife, and went over whatever I couldn't get off..no issues, as long as you use enough glue

    Hydro turf sells mats that have the adhesive already on the mat backing, as previously mentioned, "peel and stick", well worth the little extra money! Contact adhesive can be very messy. Emphasis on VERY.

    Lowes sells floor adhesive remover. Works very well. Soak the old mat, then scrape it off. Then work on the glue. It is a tedious all day process still, but it will remove every bit of factory glue if you have enough patience.

    Not if you follow directions. If you don't glob it on, have patience,and wait until the backing gets tacky,.it's not bad at all
