Question Headlines reupholstery

Hey there. When I bought my car it had/has some petty rough headlining. I'm considering taking it out today and redoing it with some fabric from walmart and 3m spray glue. Any tips? I've got a sunroom(Hence why it's messed up..).

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

One of the better write-ups: http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/sho....php?p=1892417

Jo-Ann Fabric's has actual headliner material with the stock style foam backing but it only comes in tan, grey and black. If just doing the headliner you only need about 1.25yd, maybe 1.5yd to be safe; add another .5yd for the visor's too.

Thought I'd necropost here.......


I've done a half dozen or so headliners with good success... I've even redone the visors with matching material...

For best results - remove headliners according to manual.

Use a stiff bristled plastic brush and shop vac to remove the decayed foam. ( that caused the sagging in the first place) take your time and get it all with care given to the edges and through holes for dome light, visor mounts and grab rails.

Use a towel soaked with n MEK to blot clean the entire surface.

I get the material at Walmart. Under $7. I use some of the fuzzier plush fabrics as they glue easier and are very easy to work to the surface.

Using Scotch 77 spray adhesive I will start at the front and work towards the back. You want the fabric loosely rolled, and do about a foot at a time. Spray the adhesive in swaths, and roll the fabric onto the glue, while working it down to the surface.

Don't sweat it if it's not perfect the first time. Worst comes to worst, peal it off and spend 7 bucks on more material.... Like anything else there is a learning curve.

Let dry, then use a sharp scissors and trim the edges and corners through holes


You'll know you did it right, when nobody notices.

I don't mean to slightly hijack, but I was wondering what the compatibility of headliners is over the S-Series? I was contemplating tackling this on my 99 SL2, but ideally if I could get my hands on a used, but solid backing, headliner I could get the fresh one repaired at my leisure and just swap them out when I have the time.

Thanks!
