*As seen on Florida3s* I have been noticing a lot of headliner questions lately, so I threw together this pretty simple guide to actually DOING the mod, and not the "how to remove parts to do it". If anyone has any questions, just shoot me a PM.
I love mods. I hate certain stock stuff. A good DIY for the average Joe.
Materials: [Razors, brake cleaner----optional], material of your choice, spray adhesive, hot glue gun
So my interior scheme is black and green, and for the longest time I have noticed the tan headliner just does NOT match. I headed out to Jo-Ann's and bought 1.5 yards of "Black Solid Interlock" to do the headliner and do matching visors. I chose the interlock because for (1) it is still a little soft, and (2) the thread doesn't look too tight or too loose. It keeps a good interior headliner look. It only cost me $7.19
After taking the cardboard template out....
I peeled the tan headliner off and got this..
I wanted to take off all of the yellow foam stuff, and if you decide to do the same, I highly advise you to get a pack of flat regular razor blades, and some brake cleaner. If you try to cut the foam off it will be an all day project. The break cleaner makes the stripping a million times easier.
You may need to grab some friends to speed things up.
Grab your spray headliner adhesive ($5) and do one small section at a time. I sprayed the cardboard template lower half first and had my friend Adam help me lay the material across nice and tight. We made sure to USE OUR PALMS, and not our fingers to press it down. We let it dry for about 10 minutes, and did the top half.
Heres a pic of me working hard.
Cut off the extra material, but leave a little extra. Grab your hot glue gun, and hot glue the edges around the top of the cardboard.
Don't pull too tight or your spray adhesive won't hold and you'll get a saggy drooping headliner. No good.
