    Glue won't work, as the foam under the fabric is breaking down.

    I use upholstery twist pins.

    It can be entirely redone with not too high of cost. You can buy the material, clean the backing board off and put new stuff on.

    Thanks for responses. i don't won't to use pins. i am going to sell it around january.--so the adhesive spray won't work? 6 bucks. don't want to throw money even if six bucks if it doesn't work--the van is an 06, so foam would break down that quick???

    It might be difficult to match the headliner color to the rest of van, if not impossible, therefore might stand out a bad looking, also i plan to sell it for about 3,000 in january, 70 miles; so don't want to add more that much cash

    I just thought--how about double sided tape

    You might try spray specifically for fabric. Wife uses it all the time when she puts backing on quilits. Mask off any areas that should not be sprayed.

    do you know which product she has success with. i looked at walmart and saw 3 or 4 different products, elmers, 3m, walmart. big difference in prices. was wondering if just name brands offered higher prices without any difference in product ability.

    I've always had good luck with 3M products, but my guess is that WalMart brand will work fine for your purposes.

    I did my 2000 like 6 years ago maybe. Once the liner goes down is because the foam under it is just old and dry. Just use patch solutions like those pins or just try to glue the thing back untill you are ready to replace the whole liner.

    In joan fabrics you can find liner, they usually have like 3 colors so get the closest one to what you need.

    When you get the roob carboard out pull the liner out and use a broom to clean all the bad foam that is still sticked to the cardboard panel. Once kind'a clean try to use like a brush to make it as neat as posible.

    There a spry glue for this, thats what you have to do, be carefull the thing really sitcks and quick. Installation and how to cut the liner is pretty obvious, measure twice cut once. stretch the liner just enough so gets snug because if you stretch too much you have chances to get the liner unglued or separated in the curved areas. 3 to 4 hours work more than nothing because Is a PITA to take all the lights off the ceiling and lose all the side panels and then remove the ceiling through the back door. Be careful with the lights

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks for your thoughts everyone. i did see loctite spray--that had different grades e.g. 90, 200, 300. gets a bit crazy. since right now it is only about 1 inch by 3 inches wide, 2 spots by front window. i will try some double side tape that i have. just cut half of it width to make it light. i'll see what happens. like i said i plan on sale in january.

    again thanks
