    Take your time and make sure you coat the turf with 2 coats of glue and that it dries accordingly before bonding together. Use a heat gun around curves and seal off any edges with superglue and you should be good to go.

    I checked around and used a fishtank silicone from Ronas own brand. It has been perfect for 2 years now. Everything else didn't even last a few months. I did it in the winter as it takes a long time to cure. Four bucks a tube!!

    I 2nd that....no silicone....use contact cement....lots of coats as suggested....WAIT the 10-15 minutes until it's dry to the touch.....seems odd, but when you touch the 2 surfaces together it ain't letting go.

    Follow link in my sig for pics of my install ;-)

    Cheers
