    I think the most I'm probably halfway there with what I have! LOL You know I was just there picking out the material for my back decklid correct? I'll be posting that here in a few, brace yourself....

    After a few months, a trip to the track, and a couple of car shows the homemade headliner still looks great.

    I say this as there's some recent headliner questions and since this is untested I'd like to keep it updated from time to time.

      Great job! I'm running into the same thing with mine, I have a full interior -the headliner and I'm not feeling like giving out the 100's of bills blow on something thats not essential.
      So now I gotta make my own kinda template....

        So you don't even have a template?

        I don't know if I said it in the thread here or not but at one time I was thinking of getting a large piece of paper before I had covered my headliner and made paper templates. About that 40 bucks for paper templates LOL it was a thought...

        Haha... Funny you should mention that...
        Ya, I need to make one OR find one since I pretty much got mine as a roller with parts in boxes stuffed into the trunk. But stuff like this is what I've done for years. Odd how prop making skills overlap so nicely with interior work.

          maybe if there's a member who has their headliner out right now or something even if you could get a copy of 1/2 of it to flip over and get the relief cut lines also. I've had someone do this in a different instance when I needed a shifter bracket for my vertigate. I had someone just toss it on a piece of paper and draw around it and draw where the holes are. I was easily able to reproduce with that.

          Just took my 1972 Dart hardtop headliner out last week. No tears. So it's in good shape. What info are you looking for?

            He needs a template or a drawing
            , but yours is different then a dart sport or Duster or demon. I only say this cuz his name is space demon so I assume it's a demon with the fold down rear seat?

            You be correct j par, I'd need a duster/demon/sport headliner.
