XK8 Headliner

Hello all - long time lurker here, really enjoy this forum! I've got a 2002 XK8 hardtop that suddenly has the headliner sagging down, as if all of the glue failed that holds it up to the roof insert. A local upholstery shop quoted $450, because they need to remove and redo the whole thing. Anybody seen this? Anybody tried spraying glue inside, and sticking it back up? Other ideas and input welcome; I'd really prefer spending $450 on something else! :-)

Thanks
George

That is not a bad price for the repair, actually. I have never seen anything that really can get the job done short of doing it right. Anything less makes for poor appearance or won't hold up very long.

Good luck.

I was afraid you were going to say that :-), thanks Steven. It probably is the right answer......

I had the headliner replaced on my 2000 XK8. It was about $450.00.
