1967 Chevelle Interior rear window trim/molding

GM TC. So I had the car out in the sun this past weekend and noticed the rear window interior molding had come off partly, warped, and re-hardened out of shape. It looks like whomever last installed it used some kind of adhesive (looks like maple syrup) and is a mess. From what I was told that trim piece should have been a snap on part. What would be the best method of cleaning up the old adhesive? Some of it is obviously on the edge of the headliner that I will probably not be able to do anything about.

Thanks,

Rock

For the glue on the molding itself, use 3M adhesive remover. The color of the headliner would determine what I would use on it. Either way I would experiment in a tiny unseen spot before going to town. You don't want to use something that might permanently discolor it.

I use mineral spirits to remove adhesive from vinyl fabric. As Pete said, start with a hidden area to make sure the color isn't also removed, although I've never had a problem with that. Be gentle, and it might take more than one application.
