There is a sunroof up there too so I do not want to remove the headliner
as it would be a real pain putting it back in. Plus the front is holding
up just fine from the original stuff. Guess I will have to clean the
foam with it still up.
What was your trick Marsh Monster?
Was thinking of using the Duro stuff from Kmart.
Any other thoughts?
go on down to the local "builderama" store....
buy you some ½ inch wide trim strips made out
of wood or plastic, the kind that you use on interior paneling to
conceal the edges when
you butt 2 pieces togeather. They come in
8 foot lengths.
Cut the trim strips about 2 inches longer than
the width of your headliner......shove em up there, sticking the ends
under the trim panels
on the sides to secure it.
If you cut them to the right length....the natural
flexing characteristic of the strips will cause
them to form an arc.....keeping the headliner
off yer nogg'n. The trick is to use as thin a
strip as possible, and the job will look pretty
These things can be gotten in plastic and wood.
Painted with Rustoleum to match yer interior
trim panels, they look decent and are an economical alternative to using
3M spray adhesive....that isn't going to work anyways if
you don't take the headliner down and get all
the rotten,dry, foam off the backing board.
I have also used 1/8 wooden dowl rods from
the buiderama fixit yerself place.....but they
don't come in sections longer than 4ft., which
makes them import specific on application.
