Repair headliner board with broken corner

Sometimes when the headliner board is removed, a corner or a place on the board itself may be damaged (especially around the sunvior holes). Simply get a piece of duct tape and put it back together. This works with all boards whether styrofoam, cardboard, or fiberglass.

The tape will hold it in place until the glue is applied and once it is glued in place, it doesn't matter whether the tape stays on or not.

I have a major major hole in my where my dog destroyed it how do I go about fixing that

I have a couple dime size divots/small holes in my headliner board. 1984 S10 Blazer Chevrolet. I was thinking of using a hot glue gun to fill the divots in the board with the small piece of broken board set into hot glue. Any thoughts on this type of repair? Will the hot glue melt in summer? IDK. THANKS

WLS Admin :: If it is small holes the size you said - I would just float the headliner material over it, don't press down too hard around the hole because you will see the indention of the hole.
Hi, even though the headliner board in my 2001 Buick Lesabre looks like fiberglass, the front and back edges seem more like foam (ie there seems to be less fiberglass applied at the edges) and are brittle so based on your tip I am assuming that the duct tape can also be applied and left on to the back of the headliner to provide additional support in cases where the headboard is not broken but bent/creased? Also, if a piece of foam is gouged out, I am also assuming that I should glue it back into place before applying the headlines?
