I'm sure you are aware of this stuff...I even use it to keep house wrap anchored down while siding .

Yes, Ed I used it several times.  A can here cost $10 whereas a gallon of Weldwood cost $42.  Hard to compare the two because the Weldwood requires a spray gun and compressor but the spray is a nice web pattern that sort of sits on top of whatever you are gluing.  The Weldwood will cover far more area than 4 cans of "off the shelf" spray BUT the cleanup is much easier.  With the Weldwood there is no such thing as repositioning, once placed you would most likely rip something getting them apart again.  Lots of trade-offs and for a small job or two I would go for the cans.  Cans can be stored longer too.

Well, tried the glue in a gravity feed gun (cheapo HF) and it works just fine.  This enabled me to finish the door panel and kick panel.  This leaves the seats and sun visors to do.  Decided to opt for no cloth on the visors because they would be easier to clean if all vinyl.  Again, all new to me so I've been testing the different methods of covering the visor.  Tried covering the visor with thin cardboard but the ribs in the cardboard will show thru.  Got some HEAVY poster board and it will work BUT the sewing machine does not like two layers of cardboard and 4 layers of vinyl.  Sandpapered the edge of the cardboard a bit and the machine hummed right through it.  Next up is how to mount the mirrors.  Note to self...why?  Note the difference in kick panels.  Decided to go with all vinyl next to e-brake pedal for ease of cleaning.  Also looking for an embroidery show to put a design on the visors.

You are really doing a nice job, it looks great!
Tighten it up til it strips, then back it off a quarter turn
