The glue attaching the fabric covering on my headliner has started failing, causing spots where it has separated.

My plan is to remove the headliner from the vehicle, remove the existing fabric, glue on new fabric, then replace the headliner.

Some of my luxury vehicles had / have Alcantara headliners. That fabric is very nice and I would like to use that in this application. I don't see Alcantara on the Sailrite site.

What fabric is recommended for this application? Is this Ultrasuede HP the suggested fabric?

Is this 3M 08090 Spray Adhesive the suggested glue?

Hello,

Yes, Ultrasuede HP is the closest thing we have to Alcantara. 3M Super Trim is too aggressive, you will want to use 3M Super 77 instead.

Thanks for the information.

The Sailrite site shows samples are not available.

The Toray site permits ordering samples. It would be useful to update the Sailrite site to add the order sample link.

The site states: "Samples are provided to qualified professionals and businesses in the trade only. You may be contacted to provide further information."
