Where do you get the material from?
6 now you usethe hvac tape to fasten the pieces together first taping the inside then taping the outside. 7 now you can test fit the headliner 8 although the new headliner may need to be trimmed after you put the covering on it wait until you are installing it to do so. 9 now using spray glue starting with the center portion of your headliner keeping the glue off the sideboard portions, after the center is done pull the fabric out of the way to spray glue and stretch them carefully so as to not have wrinkles
10 now the headliner is covered flip it over and wrap the edges, it is suggested to trim to about 2 inches and then glue that down. 11 I added jute padding with spray glue to the topside of the headliner before installing it carefully cutting for the dome light, prior to installing the fabric I used a hole saw to cut for the shoulder belts.
wags, good to see you back.
I been around it's just hard to navigate this board will get some pics of the installed headliner soon and a thread on door panel restoration, more like door panel fix up
can/has it been done?? home made headliner... ...
sign shop it was 25 bucks a sheet, the headliner fabric was 40 bucks 11 bucks for the hvac tape and 12 bucks for the spray glue from ace hardware
A tip for cutting materials... Another is a sheet of glass. BUT you will need to change blades VERY often as they dull super fast. Also Exacto type blades are better than utility knife blades for cutting.
