I use a spray glue called "Trim Tack" that I get from a local reupholstery 
supplier here in Omaha.  It's better than 3M 90 and it's colorless!  The can 
says it contains NO chlorinated solvents, cfc's or ozone depleters. 
However, like any spray product, you do need to use it in a well ventilated 
place.  If you don't like spray glues, I dunno what to use.  But this stuff 
sticks within 30 seconds, usually, and holds very fast.  There is some seam 
"popping", but very little.  I love the stuff and have used it on fun foam 
(the thin L200) and it works well.  Also great on fabric, because it doesn't 
stain, and fabric to polyfoam holds beautifully.  It's also incredibly 
cheap.  Less than $5 a can the size of 3M 90 and I buy it by the case - 6 
cans and it's even cheaper.  Sorry I don't know specifically where it comes 
from originally, the can just says "Manufactured for Trim Tack Paramount 
California 90723.  But the store here in Omaha, Nebraska is Josin Fabric & 
Supply Co., 2501 N. 85th St., Omaha, NE  68134.  Phone; 402/393-5677.  I 
don't think they have a website and they're not open on weekends.  Great 
stuff!  Try it!
