Default Carpetting raised lettering, carpet keeps lifting, what HOLDS??

im trying to cover some door pods that are like 36" long, but have 6" tall 1/2" thick raised letters on the panel, the letters "CRX" , the problem is I cant get the damn carpet to stick down in the tucked areas around the letters, it just wont hold.

I tried using super 77, and contact cement....

How would you cover such thick letters and have the carpet hold to make tight clean looking letters?

Follow the directions on the contact cement... {apply to both surfaces and let dry for 10 to 15 minutes until mostly dry but still tacky}

btw.. I use 3M "DAP" Weldwood Contact Cement which can be purchased at Walmart.

I did follow the instructions on the can, I did both surfaces and then let it tack. When pressed together it didnt hold in the areas where the was "pull" though, the flue would give way and not tuck cleanly around the edges.

I think I had loctite super heavy duty contact cement.

Its fairly cold in my garage, but I do have the heatgun going and that thing puts out some damn heat!!

You might be better off getting some 4 way stretch vinyl from a fabrics store.

As for your carpet, you may need to make some cuts and splice some sections in to make the contours. Thing carpet does not hide this kind of work well though.

Showing us pictures would help a lot.
