Peeling Hardtop Upholstered Trim
« on: September 11, 2021, 22:03:15 »
I’m curious, what’s the back sill of your hard top look like on the underside.  Mine is peeling and driving me crazy.  What do you use to keep it neat and tidy?

Glue it back?
Make sure the surfaces are cleaned properly and de-greased, apply upholstery glue on both surfaces fairly thin, wait a couple of minutes and put together, squeezing with carpenter's vice (or whatever this tool is called) where possible.
