e36 compact ceiling fabric
hi guys, recently ive started to notice that the fabric on the ceiling has come detatched in the corners. id like to stick it back up there, but i dont want there to be glue stains on the fabric. Also i dont want to take the whole thing off and re stick it, as i live in a flat (apartment) and i dont have a garage where i could do the work.
i was thinking that maybe i could get some syringes, and fill them up with some sort of glue (all purpose or Uhu) and inject through the fabric in multiple locations to get it back up there. any ideas or recomendations?

The key words here are use sparingly. I used some all purpose fabric glue that worked great. In the places I put it on too thick, it shows through ("stains"). The places I glued were the edges. I have spots like you have where either a syringe or cutting a slit would be an option. Kinda think a syringe small enough to put down the correct amount wouldn't be big enough to push the glue. Let us know how it goes. Maybe somebody here has a better solution. This issue seems to be fairly common.

The foam is old and deteriorating. The whole cover will eventually fall down. Glue works on the edge for a year until the center fails. I used a thin layer of white Elmers glue after scraping the old foam.
