theres a part of my roof inside the car that is starting to sag down. its just the end where the roof meets the back window, starting to peel off or something

anyone else had to deal with this problem?

what are your suggestions? are there any products out there to fix this?

Mine's doing the same thing, except my entire roof is coming down. I called around and asked for quotes and everyones been saying around $250. They have to take down not only the fabric but that "cardboard" looking thing that it sticks to so they can clean it and put new sponge material or whatever so the fabric sticks for a while, and apparently in order to take the roof you have to take the pillars off and they said the pillars always break(can someone confirm this?)

What I just do is bought a can of 135 Automotive Adhesive from my friend that does wholesale crap, and just sprayed the hell out of the roof material and it sticks. That's a cheap way I know, but I don't really feel like busting out 250 when my way works just as well and looks just as good.

ridikuledind has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Mine started doing that so i replaced it. It looks really good. I'll post the pictures in a few days when i get a chance....it cost me 300 dollars, and the guy did a really good job.
