How do I insulate behind the front shell?

I removed the front inside molded shell to push out some dents and its time to replace everything. The problem I'm having is that the loose insulations seems to defy replacement.I tried to use carpet tape to hold the insulation to the metal, than tried to tape it to the outside of the shell. Neither method worked. Does anyone have suggestions for other insulation, or a way to use the original stuff?

3M makes a spray adhesive that works well.

I also used a spray adhesive and it worked out well.

3M sells two spray adhesives which should work, 77 and 90. Both are contact cements. 77 allows some repositioning before it fully sets up while 90 is very permanent and will stick to practically anything. I believe 90 is also the most heat resistant. That might be important because of the heat generated by the sun on the outside of the trailer.

Thanks to everyone for the quick responses. I stopped by the Auto Parts store and although I didn't see any of the listed 3M products, I did buy Permatex Headliner Adhesive. It was 451 times the amount I needed, but it worked great. Thanks again.
