Any one know what the best glue is for the white construction tyvek?

PVA works...

This guy has lots of information. He likes Cuben Fiber ($$) over Tyvek but I'd imagine the adhesive he uses - a two-part expoxy from Loctite - would work for you too.

There were several fairly lengthy threads a while back concerning Thom Dorrah's GCB (ground-cover-bivy) and he noted that simple, relatively inexpensive 3M Super 77 and Super 90 worked well in bonding Tyvek -- I would probably go with the 90 just because. Best luck!
