Redoing some trim and found one of the plywood headliner panels
has an area about 12"X18" that is delaminating. No rot
and the wood is basically sound so want to glue the layers of the plywood
back together and reuse the panel.
However, that section of the cabin
top is pretty curved and to get the panel back into place I have to warp it a good bit. Normally I would pour a little epoxy
between the layers, press it under a sheet of ply to cure and be done but not sure if epoxy
would make the panel too rigid or brittle to go back in place.
The panel is about 4 1/2' long, 2' wide and bows up in the middle 5-6". To get it behind a trim piece I have to further bend one corner another couple of inches.
Need something that isn't too viscous so it can either pour down into the crack between the wood layers (an not create lumps) or really thin so it can penetrate through the outer layer into the layers below.
Am I overthinking this and the epoxy would be fine? I read that Titebond II or III might be good for a flexible application. Also thought about using a spray can of contact cement since that would be very flexible but would it be the best for this application?
