Default Adhesive promoter

I'm installing a dash kit (vinyl) and some pieces won't stick properly,I've been told that using an adhesive promoter will do the trick.Does anyone know where I can get this stuff..and yes I did a proper prep with alcohol several repeats of same etc.Thanks.

3M™ Adhesion Promoter 06396 is specifically formulated to be used with 3M™ Acrylic Foam Tape for automotive applications. This adhesion promoter is supplied in an easy-to-use sponge applicator packet. The liquid contents of the packet should be completely used as soon as possible after opening. Apply promoter only to the areas that will be fully covered with tape. The primer should be dry before applying tape. For best results, apply tape immediately after primer application or no more than one hour after primer application. Be sure the primed surfaces remains free from contaminants prior to tape application.

Above is from 3M's website. These little packets are hard to find because they come in a large box for around $23.00. The "best" aftermarket parts suppliers will include a single packet along with their parts that use the 3M foam tape. Try your local automotive paint supply store; not Checkers, but go where painters buy their paint. You'll find them in the yellow pages. They may have small quantities of the pads available for sale.
