Subject: Re: fallen headliner


There are lots of complicated adhesive solutions to this problem discussed and catalogued at the favorite saab website (the saab network-> http://www.warp.org/tsn.html) These will all likely fail eventually and cost $$s. My solution was to go the mechanical low tech route. Go to the hardware store or upholstery store and find upholstry screws. These have a little clear polystyrene decorative head 'bout the size of a thumbtack, attached to a thin wire like corkscrew shank about 1/4" - 1/2" long. Their original purpose is to hold armrest covers and such in place on the sofa, etc. they will screw right into the fiberglass headliner shell. they work great,don't look that bad and are 12 cents each!. Can't take credit for this idea, saw it here a month or two ago.
