So it's cold and windy today up in the great Northwest, no better time than to spend a little time sprucing up the old Titan! One thing that has been driving me crazy for a while is the iron on "Titan" embroidered patch on my floor mats, the corners are peeling up! Here is a picture of the passenger side, but the drivers side was even worse as it obviously gets the most wear and tear.



I finally figured out a good method for repairing this problem that works pretty darn well if you ask me!

What you need:
Permatex 118DA Spray adhesive
Plastic Sandwich Bag
Toothpick
Household Iron





Simply spray a little adhesive on to the plastic bag and roll your toothpick in it. Then apply a small amount to the underside of the label and to the mat.




Make sure the iron is hot, I set mine to high. Drag the iron over the glued area for a minute or so and allow to dry for 30 minutes. When your done you label should be affixed better than new!




Hope this helps someone!!

Enjoy!

nice job, I would have probably tried fabric glue but I bet your repair lasts longer.

Fabric glue is a good idea too, but honestly I think thats about all the permatex spray adhesive is in reality.....LOL. I think the trick is the heat applied by the iron, that really seems to bond the two surfaces real well.

A hot glue gun with some carpet glue works well also and just apply some weight till it sets up a matter of minutes. Nice post!

I never like placing something heavy on an attempted glue repair, inevitably glue oozes out and sticks to the object supplying the weight.

Well the solution is to not over do the glue. As the commercial says, " a little dab will do ya"
