Default Tried to redo my headliner. Wrong idea.

Well after getting a $175 quote to redo my headliner, i decided to tackle it myself. Long story short, my anger got the best of me and now i need to get a new visor. I thought it was going to go easier than it did, i didn't even bother taking pictures it would have been a waste. Well anyways i spose that pretty much covers my day. I know some people on have done it on here and congrats to them. I know i'd hate being an upholstry guy. Lol

Ha where should i start.... Well the backing broke in about 6 places, the fabric didn't line back up with the holes when i put it back in, the visors didn't fit right, the door trim pieces broke the tabs off in several places, i lost one of the coathooks for the back ( i still have no idea where that went) and the dome light cover for some reason on the drivers side light doesn't sit flush anymore. That enough problems for ya? Oh and i went out this morning and the whole thing fell down anyways. Back to good old pins.

Well, that about covers everything. It does take some fiddling to get the headliner out of the car. I assume that'* how the backing broke. It makes it easier to remove a seat or two or in JohnDeerBoy'* case, a door.

What did you use for an adhesive? The 3M Super 90 holds great but the 77 just doesn't do the job.

Well i know the 77 doesn't work, it says right on the botttle do not use in automotive headlners. There was only one other 3M can there, but it was almost 13 dollars, and Krylon makes the same product that i got for 4.99. Should have just got the good stuff.
