Hard top lining

Post by ferg f » Sun Sep 13, 2020 7:59 am

Looking for some info, the lining for my hard top has started to come away from the hardtop, any good ways of fixing it?

It is not bad (at the moment) so would like to fix sooner rather than later.

Cheers

Double sided tape?

Possibly some 3M spray adhesive? Tape might be hard to get a good bond due to curved surface. If you want to try tape I suggest the thinnest VHB tape you can find. This is 1mm. There are skinnier types.

See if it will grip to Velcro hook side?

Put a run of that inside the hardtop.

The foam between the outer and inner layers of my hardtop liner had started to perish (turn to dust), so I had to pull the whole lot off and I replaced it with black Suedeliner from Harrison Trim Supplies.
Not the easiest of jobs as it has very little stretch and I got a few crinkles in the tighter corners, but overall it looks really good.
