Wound up with a lo-miles (30K) 1987 GTI that belonged to my late father. Am pretty surprised the headliner failed as quickly and as badly as it has (it started to sag and detach at least by 2008, maybe earlier -- the car was always garaged). It seems like a bit of a chore to fix this and seems about as likely to fail all over again in not so many years. (Chinese adhesives shall be the undoing of The American Empire! Do not even get me started on running shoes.) The board is in excellent shape. No dents or dings. Has anybody just sealed and painted the board and left it at that? With the proper nap on the roller, I don't think it would look half bad. Any thoughts greatly appreciated. Thanks!
