    BEST HEADLINER SPRAY ADHESIVE IF USED CORRECTLY!!!

    I bought the 6 pack of this spray adhesive to replace the headliner in my 1993 Jeep Cherokee that was sagging all over. I ordered new headliner material and took out the headliner myself and removed the old headliner material.Has 3 different spray settings but I found that HIGH worked the best and spread out the glue the best.It is HIGH TEMPERATURE so it will withstand even the highest summer heat.You MUST follow the instructions on the can COMPLETELY or it will not work. DO NOT FORGET TO LET IT CURE FOR AT LEAST 5 MINUTES before attaching the headliner material to the headboard. ALSO, I would advise spraying a layer, let it set for 5 minutes, then repeat for 2 more layers.***CAUTION: This does NOT work with the headliner still in the vehicle!!!!! You need to REMOVE THE OLD HEADLINER material because the foam backing has gone bad. The CLOTH material will not usually stick to the headliner itself without the foam backing.***If... 5/5 Supermanstears - See all my reviews This review is from: Permatex 27828 Body Shop Heavy Duty Headliner and Carpet Adhesive, 16.75 oz Aerosol Can (Automotive) I bought the 6 pack of this spray adhesive to replace the headliner in my 1993 Jeep Cherokee that was sagging all over.

    Amazing if you follow the instructions. Don't use too much.

    I have a 11 year old saturn. Inside, the ceiling has been falling down on the sunroof cover. It tickles the top of my head when I drive sometimes which has initiated many bug in the car freak outs. This needed to be fixed. Be aware that it smells strong so you'll need to let your car air out for a while before driving again. Also, when I used it I had assistance from my fiance who happens to have a heavy hand. This caused it to soak through the fabric in a couple of spots which is really no big deal to me. Like I said my car is 11 years old. All of my issues are really operator error so as long as you're mindful of these things You'll be fine. One minor complaint I had was that the nozzle drips when you spray a little bit so I ended up with gluey hands. I glued one of my rings to my fingers on accident and it ran down my wrist a little bit. I recommend covering whatever is underneath where you're about to glue with plastic and wearing gloves and you'll be just fine!

    Solid overview reference

    0 5/5 CashelByron (Minneapolis, MN USA) - See all my reviews This review is from: The Complete Guide to Auto Body Repair (Motorbooks Workshop) (Paperback) I've been messing around with body work for years as needs require. Self-taught skills are useful but I also like to pick up good references for better techniques and new products. This is a solid, up-to-date, overview reference on body work. If you have experience, it's something to refer to on an as-needed basis. If you're starting a restoration or trying to fix your own car to save money and have no experience, this is an excellent information source. It would also be good for reference if you're paying someone else because you can understand what they're doing. Little things like metal prep and correct sandpaper grits to choose can make a big difference in your results, both in terms of looks and durability. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , September 2, 2008

    Ok, but not great

    0 3/5 Allan "treozen" (Edgewood, WA United States) - See all my reviews Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: The Complete Guide to Auto Body Repair (Motorbooks Workshop) (Paperback) The book itself is not that bad, but how good it is for you will depend entirely on how much you already know and what it is you want to do. I felt the book tried to cover too much and so while you got a good overview and some details on what's-what with the various stages of body repair, it never really got into any detail. This book would have been much better for me if it had half the topics but twice the depth on each. Certainly you'll know what to look for if you're having body work done and you'll understand a lot more about the process, but don't expect to pick up this book and learn details about how to start, improve and perfect your metal shaping or painting techniques. I was looking to use a hammer and dolly set to straighten out a body panel for the first time - I honestly learned very little from this book, though it is a good general high-level body repair reference. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , November 30, 2009

    Uni-ball Kuru Toga Auto Lead Rotation Mechanical Pencil - 0.5 mm - Blue Body

    Office Product (Mitsubishi)

    Rating (4 reviews):
    (4.5/5)
    Mitsubishi

    Awesome idea, just kind of, disappointed

    $8+ for a mechanical pencil is kind of debatable since you can buy a pack of cheap mechanical pencils for less than half this price. The price is mainly for the rotating feature on this pencil, which I fully understand. I thought that the build quality would also be on par with how, technologically advanced this mechanical pencil is compared to its competitors.First off the bat, when I opened the package and removed the pencil, I noticed some blue residue on my fingers, kind of like the ink that markets leave on your fingers. It came off pretty easily, but I noticed that there was quite some blue residue inside the package. When I inspected my pencil, I noticed that there are chips of paint missing all around the pencil. Similar to the chipped paint of an old car. I was kind of put off by this point, but I was excited to test out the rotating feature.At first I was confused at how the mechanism actually worked so I started shading a piece of paper at an angle... 3/5 B.

    8 Episodes Of A Fascinating History Channel Original With Unforgivably Bad DVD Marketing

    Explanation For Lower Rating:I'm not sure what the History Channel is doing with their DVD releases this year, but it is certainly a step in the wrong direction. When they released "Pawn Stars: Volume Three," many people assumed that the show would be Season Three as the other two seasons of the program had been released in their entirety. It was, in fact, only sixteen episodes. When they released "American Pickers: Volume Two," it was the same thing. Season One had been released with all episodes, but this Volume Two was only eight episodes of Season Two. I know some people that preordered sight unseen, or just weren't paying attention, felt a little shortchanged by these smaller portions as opposed to what they had assumed were full season DVD releases. Personally, I didn't agree with the decision but, at least, the DVD packaging was very clear about what was included. Anyone who read the box knew what to expect: how many episodes and which ones, so it wasn't a blind... 2/5 K.

    0 3/5 Amazon Customer (usa) - See all my reviews This review is from: American Pickers: Volume 4 (DVD) Once again, don't be fooled. this is "volume 4" from season 2.it is NOT season 4.sure it says "volume" but if you're not familiar (which i wasn't) with that brand of marketing it's easy to not realize you're being tricked. If they wanted to be honest. they'd say "Volume 4 of Season 2" so clearly this is a bit of dis-honesty hoping to trick you into not being careful. Well done amazon.
