    Default 405 - Ceiling Lining

    The cloth lining of the ceiling in my series 2 405 is sagging badly. I attempted to use a spray adhesive, but no luck. I went to a autotrim place in Melbourne and was quoted over $800! Normal cars are $300; Peugeots (and Range Rovers with sun roofs) are $880.
    Has anyone else experienced the same problem? How, or where did you get it fixed? Thanks.

    Upholstery is not rocket science. Its basic craft work, with an emphasis on basic.

    Its not like you are making a chesterfield couch from scratch or french polishing an antique

    Most people screw up DIY in the gluing.
    Using the wrong or crappy glue, or too much so it permeates the fabric is a sure way to stuff it.

    The best glue I know of is a permatex product, in an orange can, called um... carpet and hood lining adhesive perhaps?


    Its interesting how it is called the roof lining, or the hood lining, but I have never heard it called a ceiling in automotive use.
