While Ive got the roof lining out, is there a way,without purchasing a whole new one... actually two (wagon), to fix up the parts on the roof lining which are sagging? I thought maybe inject some glue in there, but that would make it hard... any other suggestions?

If there is enough interest, yobboford was thinking about having a FM roof lining replacement day as I imagine there are quite a few people here with saggy roof linings..

lol @ sagging roof repair day.
You will need to buy new foam for the roof either way i know that much.
Find somewhere that will do it and ask them "as a matter of interest" how they repair them...

Im pretty certain they attach the cloth to the foam and then glue the foam to the roof, just dont know how they attach the cloth to the foam.
Any spray on adhesive should hold the foam to the roof though, thats how i did mine.

yobboford knows someone who does that type of work and if we had a whole bunch of us then he could reduce costs therefore reduce the cost for us to get it done.

hmm saggy roof repair day.. lol, sounds interesting enough... So either way Im gonna have the rip off the clotch, and stick it to something over again?
Cos its not sagging THAT much, just little bubbles here and there, thought I might touch it up, not completely replace the thing.

Cheers for the input though

The owner before my had a great idea, NOT.

Used staples.

Maybe a roof relining day in Brissy??

Can see the Headlines now. 'Guiness Book Of Records Attempt. 500 Ford Roof Lining changed in one day across Australia in 5 hours.'
