Has anyone had issues with the Fiero Store's headliner re-line kit?

I followed all the instructions I found on Pennock's and it just doesn't seem to be giving me the proper outcome.

My original headliner board was in pretty good shape. I removed all of the headliner fabric, left over foam and glue that the previous owner injected. It took me over 3 hours to get all of that done. I filled in the thumb tack holes with fibreglass patches and applied resin to the whole headliner board. Once the resin dried for 48 hours I sanded it all down, wiped it clean and applied the spray on glue on both the headliner board and fabric. I let them tack and then pressed them together. I waited 24hours to make sure the bond was good before flipping the headliner over and installing the board in the car.

I seem to have a good bond in most area's but it's just not sticking correctly inside the passenger side hump (non sunroof). I can press it together but the next day it sags again. Although minor, it's really annoying. Now I haven't had the car outside yet since I've done the headliner, now I'm concerned if the whole thing will sag the day I take the car outside for the first time.

Has anyone else had issues with the Fiero Store headliner re-line kit or am I missing something?

I've contacted the Fiero Store however they don't have much of a solution. Justin suggested buying another re-line kit and redoing to job over again...

Find an upholstery shop and have them attach the material. They have better glue. Material is available from Joanns fabric.

There was a product mentioned in a similar post recently that recommended a 3M product called Foamfast74. Can't locate the post here so maybe it was another site. But the product got rave reviews from users.

Which adhesive does the FS kit come with?

The internet is full of people who've had bad luck doing headliners with the typical 3M 77 (or is it 9077?) adhesive.

I've had good luck with 3M 38808 "Headliner and Fabric Adhesive". Granted I've only used it on two headliners but so far so good, through some very hot days. Note that on the non-sunroof headliners you have to kind of stretch the new fabric to properly fill the passenger "wells" (otherwise it'll bunch up around the opposite rim because there's too much material) and that's the first place you'll start to see it coming unglued.

It was shipped with "K-GRIP premium foam, fabric & trim" spray.

I thought it was the 3M Fabric & Trim spray that everyone is raving about but it's k-grip. I never heard about that company before?

It seems the 'non sunroof' coves are a problem pretty much across the board. I returnred a few new ABS headliners before recieving one that was not sagging right out of the box. I think non sunroof cars are rare enough that there are a lot less people who have dealt with them.
