    Default Glue

    I have to redo the rooflining in my car as it is currently sagging terribly

    Im going to use a vinyl-like material and need a glue that will stay stuck even on hot days where the car gets nice and roasty

    Any recommendations? Ive used F2 alot at work but am pretty sure that in heat it wouldnt hold up

    What about some kind of epoxy? Most of those will easily stand up to the kind of temperatures you're talking about, although they're usually very rigid - you may have issues with it cracking.

    Have you considered some kind of flexible silicone or rubber based adhesive?

    thought so. in saying that, solvent based glues will dissolve some plastics eg PVC (vinyl) etc, a 5 minute epoxy would set hard and hence be rather brittle, a silicone or rubber adhesive may be what your after.

    Neutral cure RTV (room temperature vulcanize) placed at strategic points, expensive otherwise. N.B. not acid cure.

    I think when motor trimmers fix roof linings they use Ados F2, but it is warmed and sprayed. Can't strictly vouch for this but it came from the depths of my memory somewhere. It is not an easy job to do, and in most cases you are advised to learn to live with the saggy roof lining. Why don't you talk to a motor trimmer and get some clues on the difficulty of doing the job, what materials are used, and a price for professional repair. Youv'e got nothing to lose.

    what makes you think it isnt an easy job? ive been told that by others also but getting the lining out was easy enough without breakin anything so cant imaine what else is hard abiout it

    Don't know what sort of car you have, but if I had to get mine done it would involve removal of all side trim, lights etc, window seals, and worst of all the sliding roof. It would be a major!
