Re: Removing carpet from headliner
Seems as though you have downsized your boat! did I miss that story somehow?
I've never had to remove carpet glued to the inside of a cabin but it will take some experimenting to figure out the best way, and you will be an expert in this by the time you have finished the job.
Start with the less invasive methods and work your way up to TNT.
Mechanical methods of removal involving razor blades, chisels may prove most effective.
Once only the adhesive remains try different solvents to see what works best.
Again, start with the least invasive stuff: goo-gone, goof off and work your way up to stuff like gasoline/lacquer thinner.
do you plan to put another fabric or covering up, or leave it as bare fiberglass?
