My roof lining has dropped, Has anyone tried to glue it back in with spray on contact glue, I was going to try it, If it doesn't work then It will need to be replaced anyway.?????
A local motor trimmer told me that the cloth has to be replaced and the board removed from car to do this.
I know that a standard commodore board will come out through the drivers door but will a statesman board fit throuhg door given the extra length?

Cheers

lol i just did mine b4 the charity cruise on the w/e yeah best tip i can give you bunnings spray adhesives dont work

i dont know about cheaper ones but theres a $20 one from kmart we used worked more than a treat set like concrete with none of the weight

now it looks PIMP :p ill post pics when i get some
yeah should have no pbz fixing it or getting it out but when you are replacing it i dont know if the same foam ws used in the exec to the stateo but brush it all off to get a smmth copntact surface otherwise your new one will fall too
(orange sticky foam) if its the same stuff just blush it all off till the head board is smooth and a lil sticky

yeah i got the same problem. mine was drooping a bit in the middle, but not too bad. then the other night me and the girlfriend were.... talking.... in the back seat. She put her hand up and pulled down the roof lining and now it hangs right down and i can barely see through the window.... :supersad:

what is underneath the roof lining? In a Calais it has the pins holding the lining. It feels like corkboard underneath. In theory, i could just get drawing pins (thumb-taks) and pin it back up?

Suggest trying to fix it yourself. I got quoted $180 to replace the cloth and the board.

I dont want to do a complete re-line all i have is about 1inch x 1inch comming off..
Be a waste of money for me to re-do the whole roof..

Is there any sprays i can use to just re-hold up the litttle section.
