Ceiling coming down!!!

Someone help quick...! The vinyl is coming down inside our 1995 Limited! what is the best adhesive to use to get it back up. Theres several products out there for Headliners but all say they have acetone and Im afraid it will eat into the layer of insulation.

This is a well discussed problem here on the Forums. I had it on a 93. From the adhesive will work without a complete pull out and surface cleanup. That means removal of the interior to get at the headliner. There are other methods using screws...check it out in the search function.

"If it can't be reduced, reused, repaired, rebuilt, refurbished, refinished, resold, recycled or composted
then it should be restricted, redesigned or removed from production."

In a panic....leaving on a big campout! Not about to use screws on it! SOmeone mentioned a waterbased adhesive...that would temp repair.
I realize it will have to come down and be replaced but thats time consuming as well as costly.

The urethane foam that is used as padding behind the vinyl is degrading as well as the adhesive. You would need to replace both to make the fix work. The solution I suggest is to mechanically hold the vinyl in place with bows from below. Done properly, it looks good and works with much less expense of time or money.
