Headliners are NOT easy to redo and normally take a pro to make them look right. But, if your not 100% concerned about how it looks and you think you have the time and patience to give it a shot, your local parts store should have some glue and a roller you could try.

How do you repair trim pieces at joints in ceiling it looks like ceiling is falling


If the ceiling is falling, it all needs to come down and be redone. You also have to fix the reason. If it is just the moulding, you can use silicone or filler in a tube to glue it back.

For a moveving i need 2048 sqr foot wht would that be in cbi foot


Square foot is a measure of area, cubic foot is a measure of volume. There is no direct conversion between them.

For example, if you have 2048 square feet with a one foot ceiling, you would have 2048 cubic feet. If the ceiling was raised to ten feet, you would have 20480 cubic feet.

Inner ceiling is all worn out. How much can I have it repaired. Squeeking sound on brakes too


you are going to have to find a local upholstery shop and get a price for the ceiling. you have to remove the whole panel, clean it well, put on a new layer of glue, and a new surface then reinstall the panel. this will most likely cost more than the 500 dollar value of the car and will not cause its value to go up by one cent. so you may just want to get in there and scrape it as clean as you can to get the old ceiling and adhesive out and then live with it. pretty minor.

squealing brakes means either they are worn out or the last person who did the brakes did not put any quiet goop between the back of the pads and the piston.

HOW DO I REPAIR/SECURE THE CEILING/INTERIOR ROOF


assuming it is only the cloth portion that has fallen you can remove the entire head liner and then re-glue it to the backer board

however, you need a special headliner glue which is a lot like contact spray adhesive

not a tough job but time consuming since you have to remove a lot of interior trim

when customers get the quote, $300, they usually either pin it with straight pins or just tare it off

good luck and keep us posted

Water leak in travel lite truck camper has caused over cab bed area plywood to decay. Need diagram or schematic to determine best method of repair.


Hi brad, I had the same problem with a camper. I do not know of any available schematic, but would recommend dis-assembly of ceiling area to fix. It's not any easy job, but the only way to fix it properly. Remove all water damage section, make sure water is not pooling on the exterior roof. If it is collecting on the roof, you must brace it from underneath to raise any 'dips' so it sheds water, and make sure you apply a sealing coat (available at trailer stores, or on line) on the exterior. Also, if you park the camper when not in use, make sure you tilt it to help shed water more quickly. You have to use your carpenter and auto body skills to fix this. Don't put it off, I did and the roof deteriorates very quickly once you notice you have a problem. To remove plywood that is damaged, use a skill saw set at the minimum depth (thickness of the plywood) so you don't cut thru anything else. Use a drill to determine the thickness. To install new plywood, cut to fit the opening(s). Next get 3" wide by 3/4" thickness boards, place above cut out area, half on existing ceiling, half hanging over cut out, screw in thru existing ceiling into boards, attach replacement piece, screw into overhanging boards. You can putty over the joints, sand sand and paint, or just glue some sort of fabric to cover the area and make it look finished. Good luck!

Interior cloth headliner coming down


Here is what i did on my 1980 elcamino. First remove entire headliner. Sounds difficult but its really not. Step 2 you will notice that the cloth is attached to a "stiffened mold" remove all cloth and padding. To remove padding i used a compresser with a blow valve attached to it but if you dont have this use a wire brush or just getr creative. Once all the padding is removed apply spray on glue you can find it in an aresol can at just about any autoparts store. You will also need to find an auto apolstry store and buy the appropriate length and color of what you need. You will now want the following a new and very sharp razor blade, Spray glue and New cloth. Apply glue to the "stiffened mold" and start to lay the cloth from one end only!!! Smooth out side to side as you continue to lay the cloth. Make sure that you have no wrinkles in the cloth. once this is done cut off all excess with the razor blade and cut out for your sun visors , overhead lights "oh **** handles, etc. Re-install head liner. It sounds like alot of work but it should only take you about 45min - 1 hour max.

My 1988 buick lesabre has the felt ceiling material fallen away from the roof - how do I get the felt material stuck back up to the ceiling?


It's pretty hopeless to get it stuck back up right. It has a sponge backing that tears off when you glue it. The only right way is to get a new ceiling liner and put it up. But I assume your car is too old to want to do that.

I have tried spray on adhesive. I took the liner off from the dome light to provide a hole for me to poke my arm up through and spray the adhesive. But hot sunlight made the glue come loose.

The only partially effective remedy I found was to take off the doorway trim and tape the edges of the liner up tight and hold that in place with the doorway trim. It still sagged, but I could see out the rearview mirror.

I tried a hot iron to melt the glue and stick it up. It worked for about ten minutes.

You might try stiff strips of thin wood on the outside of the liner, wedged against the doorway trim and pressing up against the liner.

You might try some quite thick glue, so that it would soak through the sponge backing and penetrate the fabric. That would show spots on the ceiling, but it might hold it in place.

Good luck!
