Ensolite Help

Hello,
I'm finally starting my Scamp restoration. I have read a ton of posts about ensolite, but still feel unsure about my particular issues.
I have one photo where I'm thinking I could put a couple holes in it, squirt some glue and push it around. The other, I'm at a loss. It has fallen to the floor. Any ideas?

I think what you're seeing in the first picture is the romex for the fluorescent light under the ensolite.

I have found ensolite to be quite forgiving stuff. You can pull it free from where it has started to come loose and spray 3m contact cement on both surfaces and easily reattach it. If it has shrunk a little, heat from a heat gun will make it stretchy enough to pull back to where it needs to go. If you stretch it too much the heat gun will also make it shrink up and conform to its original shape. YMMV. Good luck.

Thanks Reid. The electric cords are going along the bottom, so I think I'm just going to create something to cover that area up. I don't see how to hide the cords and glue it to something at the same time. Good to know about the gluing for a couple other places. Thanks!
