Default Headliner drooping

My front drivers side headliner had become lose about a year ago at the windshield edge only, & now I'm noting the passengers side is going the same way. Seems to sag more in colder/humid weather meaning I'm going to wait if it finally ever warms up to attempt anything.

Since this is on the edge, I would imagine this happened to others as well, anyone suggest a glue to rub on, getting the spray can up there may present more of a mess than it's worth, & only an inch or 2 is loose.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I used cloth glue. Painted backer lightly with brush. Credit card used to work cloth to edge. Kind of like doing wall paper. Came out good.

Had the same issue in the same places - used a glue stick like kids use in school. It was my wife's idea and honestly I didn't think it would work.

That said - haven't had to re-do it in 2 years so I'm thinking it was a good idea. Cheap and easy to apply.

Interesting thought on both the Glue stick & the Credit Card seems like a good way to stretch it out...

Was the Glue stick a water base? I had one a few years back that was like an adhesive but it had a bit of grease base to it.

Its still not getting out of the mid 40's here so I have a ways to go on it.

Has to be a non toxic water base.. I have the "purple dries clear" stuff now but I should test it first!

Think the purple stuff is Elmers.

The 3M spray can be a mess!

Go to your local fabric shop and for fabric glue. It will survive washing and works quite well. Had to use it on both of my Vues several years ago and it is still holding. One word of caution, it may cost you more if your wife goes there with you. (Speak from experience)
