Hi

I'm about to start carpeting the ply panels (around 20 mins) anyone give me tips for this.

eg. Should I just glue the edges before i bend then over then tack the carpet on?
Should I glue the entire board before i put the carpet on - edged and middle
Should I gluve the carpet and NOT the board?
Should I not waste my glue and just tack and stretch the carpet onto the panel?

thanks

I've just done ours:

I sprayed glue onto the back (obviously!!) of the carpet AND the ply board
then when folding the carpet over, after making some relief cuts, sprayed both the carpet and the board to the point where it was being folded too.

I guess this way I can be pretty sure it aint gonna sag in the heat and it will definitely stay on the board. I think if you just did the edges then you will be putting a lot of pressure on this and afterall it is a negligible piece of carpet. Spray the lot mate - if you got your carpet from T4World or Megavanmats then they've supplied you with enough glue to do the job - my advice - use as much as you can!!
