Headlining glue

Post by bongo frenzee » Tue Aug 06, 2013 7:09 pm

This isn't strictly a pimp, more of a repair, but thought this was a good place to post... I have a converted tintop Bongo and in the recent hot weather the glue on the headlining has melted and strips of it have come off. Can anyone recommend a heat-proof glue for re-attaching the fabric? It's a kind of felty carpet-like material.

Cheers.

No, but please post if you find one - the same thing has happened to the tape holding mine up :oops: :lol:
