What glue do I use to upholster the seat?

I have a new vinyl seat cover but I'm not sure what kind of glue works best to adhere to the seat pan and vinyl. Any ideas for best results?

Rubber cement in the dark jar. Apply both substrates and let dry, then adhere.

I used Super77 and it worked pretty good especially considering how much the foam was deteriorating.

Get the vinyl good and warm so it stretches a bit . Then put it over the foam and pan . Doubtful that you'll pull the fabric apart . You could test on a piece of scrap .

I use a hair dryer to keep the material pliable while working the wrinkles out .

This^^^

If you look closely at the original cover and pan you'll notice that they used nothing more than contact cement. Ive used it with great success on several seat covers.

Yep - contact cement - apply to both surfaces sparingly (dont goop it on) and when it feels tacky on both stick them together.

This tutorial has a shot of the only glue I use for vinyl.
