    Sweet Project Cars led me here. 😀

  3. I new this would work but what size needle are you using. So I can order the correct size. Thank you, Chris. PS. You are one of a very few that I trust on the internet.

  4. I needed this. Confirmed that the way I intended to fix my headliner will work! Thanks!

    tear it out and paint the roof with texture paint, it looks pretty damn good

  7. dknight211 says:

    This is actually pretty clever. Subscribed!

  8. On the lighter headliners how bad are the spots that show?

  9. Don't they make a white glue/adhesive? This one seem to be brownish…

  10. Roddy Riddle says:

    Really great info and video!! Thank you!!

  11. E las says:

    Mine does not have that tio, its like any other spray can

  12. Ginger Ale says:

    This works great! But if you live in a colder climate use a hair dryer on high heat then warm air!😁😁😁

  13. betterworld1 says:

    what about all that powdery stuff?

  14. R D says:

    My headliner (light grey thin cloth) on my Chevy Express van started peeling away at the windshield last year while on the road towing my travel trailer. I stopped at a hardware store and bought some spray contact glue and applied it. It held up until this month and started peeling away again. My GF suggested contact glue used for sewing materials. I tried that a few days ago and although messy, it did a nice job of holding the edge of the headliner up. Only time will tell if it lasts.

    Nice video. Informative and to the point. Also like the links to the products that you are using. Thanks

    Sweet Project Cars, I ordered the syringes using the Amazon link you provided.
    Unfortunately it was too big for the nozzle.
    Either the spray can changed their nozzle or the syringe place is filling the order with a different syringe.
    Any ideas?

  18. Thank you! I've watched about 20 videos before this. I was looking for a way to fix a small "bubble" in the middle of my headliner, nowhere close to any edges. I really didn't want to pull the whole thing down for a 9 inch circle in the middle. This is the video I was looking for! Thanks again 👍

  19. Did this before a hot summer. It worked perfectly. Took about 4 goes to get get it so it would not bubble. Certainly easier than organising and fitting a new headliner.

    Found brake clean is good at removing glue marks. Too much brake clean and you need to do that area again.

    Just finished repairing the 4-5 sagging sections in my 2013 KIA Sorento. Your 'spray can and needle' method worked great ! Thanks for sharing this great video. TJS

    I think your videos are all fantastic, and I enjoy watching them. I especially liked the
    ones on how to refurbish old dirty cracked leather car seats. I must say, truly amazing,
    and I'll have to try that. Kind of looks to good, and easy to be true, but it looks authentic.

    I would say though on this "headliner" video, you should explain to viewers what causes
    these headliners to sag. If you don't, your repairing it for nothing as it will soon sag again. You firstly have to get to the "root" of the problem that's causing the headliner to sag, and that's usually caused by a small water leak, that over time, breaks down the adhesive holding the liner up. I'll post an "example" of what happened to me, regarding this problem

    What caused my sagging headliner was this – on the "outside" of the car, right
    at the top of the front windshield, is a long chrome banding piece that hold
    a rubber seal in place. It had come loose, causing "water" to slowly leak in over
    time. The headliner "inside" started to droop from the very top front, up by the
    windshield, and spread to the middle, then the back. It was an 86 Buick Park
    Avenue, and this happened in the year 2000. I took it to an upholstery place, and they told me to get the "cause" of the problem fixed (water leak) before they would
    replace it, with a new headliner, as it would be a waste of money and happen
    again. Makes sense right !!!

    I took it to an auto body shop, and they had some special strong adhesive, and
    I believe it was poly eurathane. They put some of this eurathane on the rubber,
    and put the long chrome holder back over the rubber, and put a weight on it for
    4-5 hours to let the eurathane adhesive set up. This fixed the problem.

    I then took it back to the upholstery place, and they put in a new headliner. There was no more problems, and no leaking of water anymore. If your problem
    is caused by water–which I would estimate 95 % are then get the water leak
    fixed. You will also see very light water stains on your old liner, when you look
    up at it, when it's sagging–then you know it's a "water leak."

    Note-there is always anti-smoking fanatics, that blame smoking for a lot of different things that are just not true. So good new smokers-keep puffing away, and do so in peace, as it will not affect your car's interior headliner. The only thing you have to worry about is lung cancer, and yellow stained fingers 🙂 Now these are "real" effects of smoking. I say this, as there was some guy that thought that cigarette smoke caused this "no chance." His comment is below in the comment section, and also refuted by 3-4 other smokers, including myself.

    Any help in Aus 🇦🇺 ?

  23. Neal Head says:

    Thank you for the info . This is exactly what I have to do……two thumbs up 👍👍😀

  24. To complicated… I’m just driving a Topaz. Just got some thumb nails and it’s holding just fine:)

  25. Aaron S says:

    Great instructions and tips mate👍 You’re production should be a standard on YouTube as it was a joy to watch!


  27. What about hair spray?

  28. Adam Dizon says:


  29. Looks good for a quick fix. All for that. However, taking out the lining, which can take time, is worth while to distribute the fabric evenly. (Learning the hard way about that one).

  30. mick coomer says:

    In the UK there is white contact adhesive called “Copydex” This might help with glue showing through the fabric.

  31. mick coomer says:

    My headlining is ok but the felt/aluminium under the bonnet (hood) is a bit saggy. Brill ideas, thanks.

  32. Deb Bradford says:


  33. Sup Soul says:

    Great vid! unfortunately my can came with a diferent tip so I'm going to have to find a way around that

  34. Vi Chan says:

    Do you have another link for the correct syringe (USA)? The one that you have linked says "currently unavailable" on Amazon. Thanks!

  35. You people are just killin me here! These ideas are so simple and good, why didn’t I think of them already?!? Thanks for your vids.
    Pulled off all 5 tires from the Tacoma and scrubbed and treated with 303. Now I am good for another 5k miles. Doing the seals as well. All rubber and plastic under the hood as well. Thanks again!!!

  36. Jim Dixon says:

    Just wanted to let others that now 3M has changed the style of spray nozzle to glue to needle. Bought all the needed items and was surprised to see the change on the needle. It is more flat than round as in the video. Suppose for a wider spray. Trying to glue the needle is tough, tried drilling out the needle larger and squeezing it to help attach with minimal success. Hoping to find maybe a larger needle to attach to the nozzle. Still a GREAT video. Going to give it my best shot at making it work. Thanks Sweet Project Cars for posting!

  37. When finished, I would still invert the can and spray until just the gas comes out. Even with the cap on the needle, it will eventually dry out and be clogged.
