3M used to sell a spray adhesive for fabric but it was decades ago when I used that for a headliner issue.For my Honda Civic, head liner inside the car is peeling off and with windows down, shedding foam sort of pieces.
Any tips to repair it with recommendation on type of sealant? Thank you
Someone still sells it now.... Might be a Bondo-branded product now.3M used to sell a spray adhesive for fabric but it was decades ago when I used that for a headliner issue.
Can stapler be used for "ghetto" short term work?Tacks until you decide on a complete headliner replacement. Adhesives won't work because it's the foam itself that broke down. The foam will continue to break apart while shedding the outside layer of adhesive with fabric on it and you'd be back where you started.
A regular stapler will work just fine as long as you don't use something like a compressor powered staple gun that can bend the headliner board. It'll also be easy to remove along with the fabric when you replace the headliner. Go for it.Can stapler be used for "ghetto" short term work?
Thank you, have any experience with it and would it hold short term for it?
This is super helpful, thank you. How deep the hole roughly was? I am definitely leaning towards this or stapler option.I've had the upholstery tacks in the Xterra headliner for years, doing fine. I had to drill a 1/16 hole for the tack to go into, couldn't go through the headliner on it's own. Put your left finger on the headliner where you want the hole and drill it right against your finger and hold the material up against the backer and screw the tack in. If you don't you'll never find the hole.
