I have a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country with a sagging headliner and a factory sunroof.
I have a 2000 Chrysler Town and Country with a sagging headliner and a factory sunroof. This is a floating headliner. The backing material does not go all the way up to the sunroof opening. Instead, the cloth is slightly stretched, folded over the edge and glued directly to the top of the metal frame. What adhesive do I use there?
My minivan has visors with cloth covers that are tucked in, not sewn around the edges. To recover these, do I have to split the visors, recover and sew as shown in your tutorial, or can I remove the old material, and recover them without splitting the visor?
If I can recover them without splitting, do I simply trim carefully and tuck in, or do I need a different adhesive (other than the 3M spray) for the edges?
[ANSWER] To answer the first question; the 3m advanced headliner adhesive is an excellent choice for gluing headliner material to anything, even the metal. It may be wise to leave a long tail when cutting the sunroof opening in the headliner material, or even maybe, not cutting it out at all until you get the glue sprayed on the frame and headliner material. If you cut the hole out befoe you put the headliner back in the van, and cut it too small, there is a good chance you will get the adhesive on seats, carpet, or something else important.
To answer the question about the visors, you would need to wrap the material around the visor, cut it off about 1/2 inch longer than the visor and tuck the material along the opening where the visors are joined together. Do not open the visors up unless you know exactly what you are doing and have a way to weld the plastic back together. The plastic visors tend to break when they are spread apart, and they never go back together right afterwards.
