Glue-in vs ProForm: What's the Difference?

proform-vs-glue-in2.png

Many of our cab upholstery kits come in two styles: ProForm and glue-in (standard). Which one is right for you? There are benefits to each:

ProForm:

  • Plastic backed parts makes installation fast and easy - just caulk and set in place (video below)
  • No wrinkles from accidental stickage
  • Typically requires caulk adhesive (but minimal amounts)
  • Less time and experience needed to install
  • Same foam insulation and vinyl facing materials as glue-in
  • More expensive than glue-in

Glue-in:

  • Requires spray adhesive to install: spray, wait, then apply "like wallpaper" (video below)
  • Chance for wrinkles, difficult to adjust parts once "stuck"
  • More time and skill needed to install
  • Same foam insulation and vinyl facing materials as ProForm
  • Cheaper than ProForm kits

You be the judge!


(NOTE: Most individually sold headliners are the "ProForm" style, and won't show the "ProForm badge". Not all of our cab kits are offered in the "Proform" style; those that are will have "ProForm" in the product description and will have the yellow-star "ProForm" badge - as seen above. Otherwise, if "ProForm" is not specified, it is the glue-in, or "standard" style.)
