OK, if you guys say so.


I never said 3M isnt good, its just not that great on headliners, esp when gravity is constantly pulling on it.. and in the summer, when it get nice and warm, it typically releases. Your suede fabric i imagine is a little heavier then the perforated material used on OEM headliners.

SEM makes an ACTUAL headliner adhesive, not to mention there is a correct way to apply it (SEM's, and your 3M stuff) . but im sure you knew that already.

getting the head liner out, easy, getting it back in, not so much.. Gabe said "Put it back in the way you take it out" And you'll be just fine lol. make sure you leave a good 2 in to rap around the edges, and glue them down too. Um measure twice, cute once lol. let me know if you need any help.
