    spray adhesive for car ceiling fabric?


    so the roof fabric on the interior of my car is beginning to peel back near both upper corners of my rear windshield...does anyone know a good spray adhesive to stick it back up?
    Thanks

    Super 77? I used that to adhere some heat insulation underneath the seat on my bike and it seems to work pretty well. Should be able to find it in any hardware store. Not sure how well it holds up to high temperatures, and I probably won't find out since the insulation isn't likely to move and I hardly ever go under the seat anyway.

    I am also curious as to how you would go about re-attaching the fabric as it is falling in the same location you described in my wife's car. I've seen the little plastic screw type things that pinch it up to the headliner but I'd rather go the adhesive route.

    3M Super77. Can get it at any HD / Lowes, probably Walmart, etc...

    problems with sagging headliners are also due to stretching of the material. I've tried the spray adhesive route with the liner still installed in the car and it did not work out very well. removed the headliner and then proceeded. I used some 3m stuff.

    I've tried Super 77 and it does not stand up to the heat that builds up in a car roof on a sunny day. I haven't tried the other stuff in the red can. I think to get a nice finish the best method is to bond the cloth to a new sheet of foam first, then stick the cloth with foam backing onto the car ceiling.

    You gotta use super90....as said below super77 with melt with the heat, and your headliner will sag again.

    Super 90 is thicker and littler tougher to work with than super77, but available in almost all the same places, and stands up WAY better to the heat. My headliner has been held up with super90 for the past 3 years....it works.

    not sure which "model#" it is but 3M has a heat activated adhesive that will adhere when applied and afterwards it will stay adhered in the extreme heat of a closed up car on a hot day. it wont sag. if i remember correctly it is the "super90" spray adhesive.. i used to use it when i did high end car audio for a living.

    Re: spray adhesive for car ceiling fabric?

    thanks guys...i don't plan on removing the whole thing as its just beginning to peel so i am going to try and put it back up...not sure how much longer i will have the car anyway...i was hoping to get rid of it this winter but i just found out that the civic redesign is slated for 2012 instead of 2011 so i might hold onto it for a while or drive it into the ground

    i ended up picking up the 3M high-strength 90 at home depot...they also had 3M contact 80 which said on the can that it can be used for headliners...it was also a little bit more expensive than the 90...i will probably do it this week sometime
