sail panel delamination

I purchased some new assembled sail panels for a 68 Firebird/Camaro that started delaminating from just sitting in the garage. The vinyl also had bubbled in areas. I suspect this problem was due to inferior adhesive used. This is a known problem on some Camaro message boards so its not just mine. Well, I peeled up the vinyl and tried to remove the adhesive but it was too cumbersome....so I decided to just buy some new uncovered pre-cut sail panel backing boards (black waterboard type) and just get a new piece of vinyl and then cover the new boards myself with better adhesive like 3M Super Trim 8090. Unfortunately, i am having touble finding where to purchase the headliner vinyl material. I can buy the backing boards from the Camaro parts houses but you have to buy the entire headliner to get just the vinyl material for the sail panels.

Ive looked at www.perfectfit.com and www.yourautotrim.com but cant find the 1968 Camaro/ Firebird "Bedford Ribbed" OEM type grain for sale. Am I outa luck and his is going to be a special order thing?

Try Original Auto Interiors: CLICK HERE They offer cut yardage of vintage headliner material. BTW, you will always have better luck with spray grade contact adhesives, even if you have to brush it on.

Both great sites Thanks.

What kind of adhesive would be best for sticking vinyl to this waterboard material?

Any good high temp contact adhesive will work fine, like 3-M 08090 super trim adhesive, but spray grade adhesives like DAP Weldwood Landau top and trim adhesive, or 3-M's spray grade trim adhesive will always work better than an aerosol. The glues in aerosol cans have to be thin enough to come out of that small nozzle, so they can lose some of their holding power. For a lot of things, they are fine, but I wouldn't want to depend on a "hard" headliner board being held up with an aerosol.
