Need to find trim shop in Austin

Now that the mechanical refurbishing is done, I have noticed that the headliner is dropping and the fabric is peeling off most of the A, B, and C pillars. Anyone know of a good interior trim shop in Austin that I can trust to do this work? Thanks.

Mine is doing that too. I fixed the pillars with some 3M spray adhesive. I haven't gotten to the drooping headliner yet. It's in the back seat area in mine; I'm figuring that I can take off the handles and spray in there, as well.

How did you keep the spray from staining the fabric?

The spray I used dries clear. I didn't soak it with the glue, just a light spray.

OK. Which 3M spray adhesive did you use?
