Replacing a headliner...

I have the headliner out, brushed off all of the old crusty foam. I am left with a tacky film on the fiberboard. I will be using Weldwood Landau top headlining spray... Should it be safe to go over the tacky stuff? Ive tried using Xylol(recommended for weldwood), acetone.. And nothing gets the stuff off.

Acetone will not touch contact adhesive, either use Xylol or mineral spirits, nothing else. Xylol and mineral spirits are almost the same. Xylol is better, but more expensive. You can spray the top and trim adhesive right over the old stuff on the car. It will still work fine. Just clean the area with alcohol first.

Thanks Dan

Ive done 2 others using professional products rattle can adhesive, but I figured this next one I will just buy a gallon of Weldwood and a spray gun. Its out of a BMW 740 and I probably saved money doing it this way vs 13 bucks a can.. Had to stretch out my last rattle can much further than I wanted to.. The heat here in Florida is just a bear on the headliners..They are my personal vehicles and while not perfect, they look 100% better than before...
Mike
