Inside head liner starting to sag

So a new thread, the inside head liner is starting to sag in some area's Looking over the way the headliner is installed it appeares that its in sections seperated by a plastic trim strip.
So I'm wondering, can the strips be taken out to reveal that the headliner is put in in sections and can I just shoot some spray adheasive onto the saging sections and retack them. Really want to know if someone has done this befor I start tearing into the headliner

Tony

Before I tore out my headliner I did just that. I used a quality spray contact cement, let it dry, and then pressed it into place. It lasted until I tore the roof off this summer.

On some spray cans the spray head from a wd-40 or similar type head with a long nozzle will fit. It'll help you get the glue (or whatever else you're spraying) exactly where you want it.

Thanks Erik,
I have some 3m adhesive I used to redo the headliner in my firebird, its designed for hi heat. As soon as I figue out how to get thouse plastic strips out I'll tackel this job.

The headliner separates the same way it did in your Firebird-the foam deteriorates. The spray glue will bond to the foam just long enough until the foam continues to deteriorate. What I did was take a plastic putty knife and push the headliner underneath the plastic trim-acceptable repair for the time being.
