The fabric on the driver side door panel of my '04 Civic started peeling off a few months ago. It looks like the adhesive is finally starting to go and I'd like to repair it before the whole piece peels off.
What type of adhesive do you use to repair this? Should be a very simple fix, just don't know what glue should be used.
Hmm.. how big is the peeled portion, and where it is?
If it's one of the ends, just use newspaper and tape to cover the exposed areas, and use the spray-can adhesive.
If it's near the center, like around the door handle, you might want to see if you can find something that can be applied with a brush.
I've used the 3M (spray-can) stuff with positive results, but there are other adhesives available. Just make sure it's right for the application.
It starts from the top left corner and goes about 1/3 way down, and continues along the top about 3/4 the way across. It's a relatively large area, so I'm not too afraid to use the spray but I'm open to suggestions. I think it might be from pressing against it with my arm every time I open the door. I push the door with my forearm when I open it, and after about 4 years of doing this I think it's taken it's toll on the glue.
Everyone says 3M Super77 is good, but its very temperamental with high/low temps.
We use cans and cans of this stuff at my factory. It sticks even on parts coated with hydraulic fluid. The only thing is it's pretty damn messy and needs to get tacky before you adhere it to anything. I'm not so sure how good it would work on fabric.
