Hello all

I have two deck hatches that don't have screen inserts. I would like to glue velcro to the fibreglass headliner and sew up some screens with velcro edges but am concerned that the glue adhering the velcro to the liner will fail over a year or two.
Any thoughts on what would work long term? Is there a type of fabric that I could sew to the back of the velcro that would help to bound it to the liner?

Some velcro comes with hard plastic backing with glue already on it. You can just strip off the paper and put it up. I do not know how well it holds, though.
