Head Liner Help!!

I have a 1990 Pace Arrow that has the head liner coming down. It seems the vinyl is in good shape but the foam liner has come apart. My first thought is to spray some kind of glue up behind there and roll it back up with a squeegee or a roller. I guess some kind of glue that would spray in to a small area as it has not all fell down and something that wont eat up the foam? I was also considering wall paper paste? Any tips would be appreciated....

Suggest 3m super77 spray glue. The problem is not the glue failing but the foam. Unless you remove all of the foam and replace with new the headliner will continue to drop.

My husband restores classic cars and replaced a couple of headliners. He agrees that the 3m spay glue works the best.

You need to remove all left foam and replace. Use the spray glue to adhere headliner to foam and foam to substrate.

I have a few of those screen moldings strips that have come off . I am replacing them with one's that have a design and am going to spray them with a clear finish. I told the other half we will have a vaulted looking ceiling. What did you use to hold them up? I am pretty sure ours were just staples (factory) holding them to the ceiling.
You did a nice job looks great.

Mine so far are just bent and bowed tight and snap into place. And I used a wood splat hula to stretch the material back in place. No glue

I like the idea of snapping them in place, I'm afraid I will shoot a staple thru my roof I was planing on using a Mudding troll but the wood spatula sounds better. Thanks.
