Default running board rubber glue?

I have the new running board pyramid rubber mid-1930 Cabriolet that comes with a white paper covering adhesive backing that is peeled off to stick them on.

Is this good enough, or should I use some additional weatherstrip adhesive to hold it down before I start to install the zinc strips that hold down the edges?

I have only used contact cement so I can't help you with experience but if I were in your shoes I would add the adhesive.

I have new mats that I will be installing soon, no self adhesive on these, I'll be using some of the super 3M stuff.

I used the good stinky Weldwood contact cement (not the crappy worthless water based stuff) to install the runningboard matting on my 28 coupe. The problem was the glue created bubbles under the matting. The matting laid down nicely, but a little later, bubbles started forming. It was a tough job to try to get rid of the several medium sized bubbles that formed on each board. I am going to use 3M 90 spray adhesive to glue the matting on my 29 phaeton's runningboards.

3M spray is much easier to get on evenly and avoid bubbles.

The last Swap Meet that I attended I spoke with a fellow that sold running board rubber and installed them. I asked what adhesive he used and he showed me this: GM 550 Polyurethane Adhesive Sealant Fast Cure.

Afordman31,
Is the GM adhesive a spray or is it applied another way (brush maybe)? I am about ready to put the matting on my 29 phaeton runningboards and don't want to have trouble(bubbles) like I did with the coupe using contact cement.

3M makes SEVERAL differing spray adhesives. I've used different types of 3M spray, depending on what I need to happen with job. For instance, one type spray tacks/dries more slowly and you get a small window for shifting part. Whereas, another spray keeps the part(s) in place immediately. Choose wisely. All are great at what they do !

What was it like in "bygone" days, WITHOUT the modern GLUES/ADHESIVES, that we enjoy NOW? They'd glue something, let it sit for DAYS & it'd jist fall apart +=*$^%#$^ (PROFANITY that I can't display HERE!)

Was in a tube Rusty, not spray. He said that there was working time and that he had weighted the running board rubber after getting it in position!
