Hard Top Liner Repair



The liner in my hard top slowly and steadly came undone from the top. I originally had hoped that I could reglue it, but after removing it I felt it was shot. I had been reading about Plastic-Dip and decided to give it a try on my top. It came out pretty good and I will see how it holds up.

Interesting pictures. Glad it worked out.

My liner still looks OK, so I guess I am lucky.

Looks like it came out great. As an alternative I used spray on truck bed liner.

Plasti-Dip

I really like the look but I am concerned about the durability. The truck bed coating might be the way to go later, but for now I have the option of removing the coating easliy and either redoing or painting the interior top. It sure is better than having the liner sitting on the top of my head while driving.
