I got one right.. ok, 95% right about 1990, LM... I used 3M yellow contact
cement ... my suggestion is not to use it, because when you let it dry,
and then do the " Contact".... it sticks forever right there. One chance,
apply as you tighten the assembly, very difficult to do; oh suggest to take
out the front seats, to get you wallow room.
I would now use and practice with Shoe Goo, which would give you a few
seconds to adjust the fit after your initial stretch-out. There are other
modern, slower set-up adhesives, that would be my approach now.
I found Clarkes headliner to fit pretty well.
Oh, give it a few days after installing, I swear mine "shrunk" a bit and
took a couple wrinkle-botches out of the liner.
hope this helps, ken campbell, max headliner in ioHuh?
