    Not sure if Metal Roof Supports is correct (probably not), but as you can see in the picture they snapped away from whatever adhesive was holding them in. Going over bumps this causes a pretty annoying rattle.

    Just wondering if anyone knows what kind of adhesive is used to secure them? Initially I thought they would be be welded but it seems to be a glue type substance..?

    If you've got the headliner out, I'd go ahead and dynamat the whole roof.

    I actually roll without the headliner, I kind of like the look.

    Think JB Weld or something would work?

    Maybe you could just put foam blocks between the supports and the roof. Space them away from the roof so they don't hit it

    Oh. In that case. Yes. JB weld. Try the putty instead of the regular paste.
