Another headliner question...

I have read though the archives and don't see the answer I'm looking for...
I recently had larger ports installed which required the yard to remove two sections of headliner. I've had an upholstery shop make cloth-covered pieces of carpet to cover the spots around the port where the headliner is missing.

-->Question: how should I glue these carpet patches to the exposed fiberglass bulkhead?

Note: I bought some marine headliner adhesive which says to apply it using a 1/4" slotted trowel. I can't imagine this gripping and holding right away. And 'clamping' carpet to the bulkhead seems like it woould be nearly impossible.

Note 2: this a a Precision 23 which is not heated / cooled so insulation and condensation are not an issue.

Thanks in advance, Bob

THe mastic will set in a relatively short time. While it's doing that. yo umust "clamp" the piece with a piece of flexi=ble material, like small dimension plywood, by bracing with "spring-boards, to the opposite bulkhead. Something like a scrap piece of door stop or rip of 1X material. Slightly longer that the dim to the other side; ya just bend it a tad in the middle and let it spring\back once in position. The pressure of the "bow" will hold the piece of backer pressing the carpet to the mastic. THis is/was std proceed when glue lamming formica like tub/shower surrounds. Give it at least 24 hours and yer GtG.

While not heated/cooled, the interior space still does go thru cycles. The interior will remain cooler in the morning compared to the outside amd at night, the exterior will cool faster that he interior. Perhaps not much; but enuff to cause condensation if it's damp enough. If possible, leave a WX protected vent open to equalize/normalize temp/humidity.

HTH,
Paul

Thanks soooo much Paul!
I do have 1/4" plywood patterns which I made for the upholstery folks.
I'll use these and your flexible 'batten' suggestion for 'clamping'.
Cheers, Bob
