Hey everyone! I'm kinda new here (I registered about a year ago but spent most of my time on the bonnevilleattitude.com forum). Anyways I got a question for you guys,
last year my headliner was hanging down a lot so I took a knife to the edge where it meets the trime and I cut it open, then i used some sort of strong glue (kinda like rubber cement) and rubbed it all over the foam under the headliner that was sagging down then I used a credit card to make sure it was glued on tight... well now its a year later and the glue is still holding but some sports in the back are now coming loose..
last year, before gluing it, I head investigated the option of buying new headliner material (i found out they sell the actual material at most fabric stores including one in my area) and just removing my old headliner entirely and applying the new headliner however I disregarded the option due to the issue involved of removing the old headliner material as well as whatever it is that holds it up there ( i heard it was cardboard of some sort).. well i think i'm ready to give the headliner transplant a chance but I would like to know if anyone has tried doing this before or if anyone could look up in a service manual just what must be done to remove it. Any input on the topic is requested and appreciated guys!
sorry for the long post but i figured maybe it could come in handy for someone else someday thinking of gluing their headliner like i did.
