Default Fabrics TISSUE on top of my interior roof is falling off.

The original fabrics tissue covering my interior roof ceiling is falling off in the back edge of the rear window on my SSE 88..
Is there any way I can reglue this or tape it with some carpet 2 sides tape maybe??
If you had experienced this I would appreciate to know your technique.
The tissue is all loose from the sun roof to the rear window edge so I guess it will need to be attached also in the center as well.
Any tips on how to do this guys?

Do a search and u will find help, seems the only way is to take it right out and replace with new fabric, it wont reglue as the old glu breaks down .

A good search term would be "headliner" by the way.

Here are some good ones...

Good luck with it. I've had a bunch of old GM products and this foul quality control failure happened on every damn one of them!

<sigh>

Be well,

Default Cheap and easy headliner repair

This isn't a top quality repair, only total replacement would do that, but it'* easy and gets the godawful headliner off your head.

Go to any fabric store or wherever they sell slip covers for furniture, and ask for the spiral pins with plastic button heads that are used to keep slipcovers from moving out of place. JoAnn Fabric or Bed Bath & Beyond are a couple of likely places.

I bought a package of 20 or so for a couple of bucks, and used them to tack the headliner back up every 6 to 10 inches in a diamond shaped array. They pierce the headliner backing, screw down snug and have stayed put for several months now.

I hope that'll be helpful to some.

Default Re: Cheap and easy headliner repair

I will add one piece of advice to this.

Add a layer of fiberglass to each side of the pressed fiberglass board. A single layer of 1oz cloth on both sides will make the board rigid as heck and give the adhesive a solid surface to bond the headliner cloth to. Takes about 16oz of polyester resin to turn the easy-to-break pressed board into a solid composite sandwich that will outlast the car.

Give it about 36 hours to fully cure before adding the headliner cloth.
