I am applying some contact cement to tack down the Velour that I bought for the tv, the most important part is cutting it before the cement goes down.


What is the best way to cut it to dimension before hand? I will be doing this job alone because I don't trust anybody that I know to do it to the utmost perfection.


What tools should I get to cut it? Xacto or utility knife?


What tool should I use to secure the material while I cut? I thought about a vice but didn't want to damage the velour at all.

If it was me, I would hold the cloth in place with double stick tape or tape rolled back on itself. Then, i would take a silver sharpie and mark the places you want to make the cuts. This gives you the ability to make the cuts outside the TV, making it much more comfortable, easy and leaving no chance of dropping the waste and/or the cutting tool in the TV. You can then dry fit and when satisfied you have it as you want it, you can apply cement and install, confident that you will have your perfect fit. Good Luck. Joe

There is a matte black tape made specifically for applying duvetyne, I ordered a roll of it when I ordered my duvetyne. It was much easier and certainly not as messy as spray adhesive. I cut my duvetyne with scissors and used the tape to apply the pieces to the inside of the TV. The added bonus is that the tape is removeable so if I need warranty work done to the TV I can remove it so as not to void my extended warranty.

I have seen duvetyne with the back already tacky and adhesive, you just remove the backing and slap it down.
