Default interior roof lining

My roof lining is starting to sag has anybody got a fix ? Not keen on ripping the whole lining out and getting it recovered.

I have read somewhere that you could try squirting glue through the headlining using a syringe, although I'm not sure how successful it is. Ultimately you will have to remove the headlining at some stage in the future to have the job done properly.

Default upholstry screws

my 95 disco doesn't have sunroofs so the lining around where the sunroofs are suppose to be were starting to sag. since i'm broke because i spend all my money on beer and gas i thought up this ... I took some upholstry screws, the kind that you screw your arm protector onto your armrest on with, they have clear heads and are long cork-screw like, and screwed the liner up into the board. now the liner is securely fastened to the roof and not sagging so bad ... and it doesn't look that bad either ... well for almost free.

Quite a resonable job. Perhaps if you use the glue trick, you might get rid of the wrinkles. Let us know if you do it.

Thats not a bad idea , maybe the screws with a thin frame cut out to the square (thin plastic or aluminium) and a couple of screws in the midle to help hold it up?
The problem with squirting in glue, is there is probably a lot of dusty, decomposing sponge type material underneath the lining and by the time you have enough glue to overcome the dust you will have a soggy mess.
The first idea of the screws has merit but will the sagging problem continue out into the curved area of the roof lining. If this is going to happen you may as well take out the lining strip it and recover it.

There is decomposed material underneath the lining but it's usually the old glue. If you rub the lining prior to squirting the glue it should hold, and if you use the syringe trick, I doubt you will ever notice where you applied it. You might get tired arms holding up the section you glued waiting for it to dry though.

OK, nothing to lose what type of glue do you think would work best and last the longest (pva wood glue, superglue, two part epoxy)? any other

The best type of glue to use would be a free flowing one like 'Trazan's Grip' or the type used to repair shoes. I don't think a two part epoxy would work very well. You could perhaps get the info from an upholsterer or furniture manufacturer.

yea, what you do is take the head liner down from the rear right over the rear door just tug on it, when it is hanging down, with a rag wipe the underside of the roof the old glue has dryed stuck to the foam backing making a dust type mess, than spray the under-side of the roof and let the spray glue get tackie than start to put the head liner back in place.
it works I did mine same place this weekend.
