Default Headliner Glue

Hey guys so today that I have some free time I decided to fix my bmw c pillar, the headliner started coming out (most likely because of the system I had) and it started looking super ugly, so I took it out and I'm just gonna re-wrap it in fabric, my question is where can I buy the fabric locally, and what adhesive do I use to stick it on? Here's a picture of the pillar right now

Not sure autozone carries that. I would try Grainger industrial supply. I get it at Checker Industrial in Canada.
Ebay has it also.

Anytime bro. Personally I can't comment on autozone brand, however not all adhesives are the same. The loctite stuff is maximum strength and high temp rating....you want hi temp to withstand high interior temps reached during summer months.

It's gonna be near impossible to find an exact match locally. If you can get me the VIN, I can match up the color and order some though. If you're not looking for the factory color, I can get you anything really (Standard headliner materials and suede, in many colors), and have it shipped directly to you.

As far as adhesive is concerned, I don't really trust anything from an aerosol can. I only use Weldwood Industrial Contact Adhesive (by DAP), sprayed from a standard siphon feed paint gun. Whatever you end up using, make sure it's a high temp contact adhesive (like the aforementioned Loctite Brand), and be sure to spray it on both surfaces (headliner board and backside of material) to achieve proper adhesion.

Another tip is to let the glue sit long enough to get tacky before applying the fabric. It'll stick a lot better this way and make it easy to form it to the interior piece's nooks and crannys. Also don't apply so much that it can soak through the fabric. I did the whole interior of my Chevy S-10 using 3M Super 90 and it was still holding strong after 4 years when I sold it.

This is very true! Any contact adhesive needs to be tacky to achieve adhesion.
