Colin or anyone else,

What is the adhesive that you used to attach the barrier? Colin, you mentioned a product during your visit and my old brain has already forgotten. I believe you said it was a lock-tite product?
I've seen other examples of what people have used on The Samba. I'd LOVE something that you don't have to spray, will stick well and I can get it back off down the road.

Do not use 3M super 77 spray adhesive if you want to get back in there without destroying the vapor barrier plastic and having to perform a seriously annoying clean-up of old adhesive.

Use an adhesive that advertises "re-positionable". If jackstar would get back to me, he has the Loctite # of the adhesive i used on Chloe's vapor barriers.

Ok.. If you happen to hear back Colin, let me know. I do want something that is not Permanent and the barrier could be pulled back off w/out destroying it.
