What glue did you use on the headliner? I'm trying to reattach some sagging spots in mine.

The roof liner looks great same as the walls, are you doing the work yourself? I would also like to know what glue you are using.

Donna, The headliner fabric is backed with a foam layer. This fabric was purchased at a fabric store, JoAnne Fabrics. It's available in red, black, gray, and beige...etc. The spray glue is a 3M product especially made for headliner attachment.

The fabric on the side walls was wrapped around alumalite panels, and was bought @ an upholstry shop. The walls were first insulated with reflextic, a "sandwich" of aluminum and foam.

Ken, The glue is a spray product made by 3M, especially for headliner attachments. Headliner fabric is foam backed. The wall panels are covered with a fabric quite different than the headliner. Perhaps a magnification of the photo will show how the 2 differ.

Thank You and good luck with re-gluing your headliner.

Really nice job you did ..... You say you used "Reflextix" on the walls and then you wrapped your material over the Alumalite and then installed that over the reflextix?_____
At that point how did you mount the alumalite to the reflextix?____
Again really good job and the wall mounting material you did i am sure would be a great help to alot of people on this forum.
thanks,
Joe

I was looking for 3m but couldn't find it, I will look harder because I used it before and it does work.
