Stretching ensolite back into place



Over the years 2 corners have pulled away and if I just reglue it the material won't be enough to make it to the joint line. I'm thinking heat and stretch? Is there a glue that works best with this stuff?

3M 77 is a popular spray on adhesive. Spray, wait for it to get tacky. attach the edge first, then slowly work your way to the middle.
