Congrats on the new car! Burn holes in your roof liner can be concealed with a repair patch that matches your car’s interior. Follow these steps to conceal the cigarette burn holes in your roof:
  • Cut the patch to size. It should be slightly larger than the burn hole.
  • Dab solvent-based glue on the burn hole.
  • Press patch directly to the burn hole until the cloth has adhered.
  • Spray the patch with frocking glue to seal the area.
