I agree, start at the stainless trim strip at waist level and work up and down from there.  It's a lot easier and the only way I know to compress the foam rubber exactly enough to replicate the original curvature.

My experience with spray-on adhesives is that even the good (expensive!) ones generally don't hold as well, nor for as long, as the contact cement.  For two thirds the price of an aerosol can, I can buy a quart of DAP brand brush-on contact cement and cover 5 to 10 times as much area.  If you follow the directions on the can, the stuff is amazingly effective.  Usual disclaimers.
