Maybe try some apolstery spray glue? Like what they use to wrap interior parts and sub boxes. It might seep through and leave a huge spot though. Hopefully you get it figured out, that would drive me nuts.

I've had this in the past with two vehicles. I had my local upholstery guy take care of it and I sat and watched. It's pretty easy if you plan on doing it yourself. Buy some new headliner fabric and about 3 cans of 3M Spray on Adhesive OR Contact Cement along with some acetone. Carefully remove all of the grab handles, lights, accessories etc that hold your headliner in place and set it on a table that you can comfortably work on. Remove the old cloth and use a wire brush to scrape away the old foam that's beneath the old headliner cloth. Wipe the now bare headliner with acetone or something similar to remove any dust/foam particles that may be left on it and allow it to dry. You want to spray the underside of the new headliner material thoroughly with that 3M adhesive and allow it to set up a little before applying it to the bare headliner. Do the same with the bare headliner. Once it starts to feel a little sticky, you want to apply the headliner material to the bare headliner and try to smooth out all bubbles, ripples etc. Remember that once this stuff sticks it's not coming off until you tear it off or time wears it down. You will need to overlap the edges on the underside of the headliner and ensure that there is adequate adhesive to hold those in place. Allow it to dry properly and give it several inspections to ensure that you don't have any areas of the material that is not stuck properly to the headliner. Once it's dried nicely, you can then mount it back up to the ceiling of your pickup and note that you will have to cut holes in order to mount your lights, grab handles and other accessories.

I hope this helps!

Nathan, with that advice, you can fix it yourself, and do a "how to" for all of us! Good Luck!

Drew's post is one of the reasons I became a DIY'er. Had the same issue with my El Camino when I was a poor univesity student. Ended up paying $70 I couldn't afford to have it repaired and was fuming when I saw how easy it was.

You might try a temp fix with som 3M spray but it'll probably (not "prolly") stain through.
Marine because.

Back then, we had to hire a service from a local upholstery. It cost $60 and that was in 2001. But I learned how he did the work so I had the same repair kit as the service guy had and charged the same.

I have some sags in mine and I was thinking about ordering a new one. I had a shop do one previously and it looked great for about a week and then it started coming apart again. He redid it again for free and I watched him that time and it was obvious he did not get all the foam off the first time. That is definatly the key. The headliner backing has to be spotless for a good job.
