sagging Rat Fur

I have an older 87 Scamp, 13'er with some spots in my ceiling rat fur that are loose and sort of sagging down. Does anyone know if there is a way to inject glue through the fur to stick it back up? If so, what did you use and Thanks

First let me say the rat fur will stretch if pulled on too hard. The 2" trim strips can be removed to access your sagging areas. The trim strips can be reattached with hot glue after you reglue the rat fur. As for the sagging ceiling and wall open up the area and spray 3M 90 spray glue on the back of the rat fur and reflectix wait a few minutes and press them together. Do not over saturate or the glues will show through. The 3M 90 can also reattach the reflectix to the shell if needed.

I used DAP High Temperature Headliner Glue, as it holds up to the Arizona heat and does NOT bleed through like the 3M 90 does. I have also used Loctite Professional Performance contact adhesive 300 Heavy, with good results.
Good luck.
