Default how to cover your own headliner step by step

first off it all depends on what type of headliner your working with... cardboard/cardboard with sunroof/ or rail... the one i covered here is from a ek hatch, normal cardboard headliner with no sunroof. sunroof headliners are a little more difficult but not to bad, and a rail headliner which come in older model cars such a 70 chevelles and so on, they are a job.. very hard to master.

ive been doing upholstry with my dad behind the house in the building for 5-6 years now,
we still do some jobs... mostly headliners and carpets now.. seats & door panels rarely.

i can also put designs in headliners, like flames/logos ect.. just depends on what you got in mind


step 1: pulll your dirty hanging headliner from the car/truck


step 2: pull the old material off being carefull not to rip the headliner itself... clean the headliner with some type of pad or brush like a tire brush.. i used a knee pad off my little brothers baseball gear lol make sure all dirt and grim is gone so the glue will stick good


step 3: this is were you want to lay the material of your choosing and cut the surrounding of the headliner, make sure to leave a good amount of material around incase you have to move it and cut again.. i used thin grey cloth we had in the building from a past job... dont use thick headliner material on a honda bc it will bulge out when reinstalled.


step 4: now you fold the material exactly halfway back (easier to lay and keep wrinkles out) take the glue your using (i use 3m adhiesive from a local hardware store or advance, fairly cheap) spray it on the headliner covering every part your trying to stick to. then spray the material on the side that going to stick to the headliner.. cover as much as possable. wait about 5-10 minutes for the glue to set up. then easily pull the material over the headliner and graze the material on the up right side in a foward motion, try to keep rincles out, take your time!


step 5: now repeat step 4 on the oppisit side


step 6: now the headliner is almost done... roll the material over the front of the headliner bc there is no piece that covers it. cut the exsess material out from around the headliner, take a razor blade or knife and cut your holes out for the sunvisor, interior light and everything else...


step 7: flip it over and you should have a finished product ready for install


step 8: reinstall the newly covered headliner

they are super easy... alot of people dont realize how easy it is and they go and pay somewhere about $200 or more to get it done. Good write up Cody, I done the one in my jeep but used a thicker material because it matched my interior so good. Ive done alot of these with flames/logo's/emblems in them.. just use you some thick foam and cover them.. but if you arent experienced much then thats where the wrinkles will come in.. its just like how I wrap cars man, exactly like that... except sometimes carpet is a little more forgiving depending on what material you use.. I know I've had some hard times with suede, and crushed velvet looked perfect even if you had wrinkles in it because of the texture and color (i did get the wrinkles out though except in one small spot).. I had a friend wrap a 240sx dash in suede, it actually turned out real good, but was a ROYAL PAIN..

Good write up!!

Hell, I'll step up and say that I wouldn't mind learning how to remove the headliner. Not to mention I have a sedan. Nobody likes broken tabs and nobody likes their shit to not fit back like it should. Any tips on removal without damaging the headliner or any the surrounding molding isn't a bad idea at all.

Oh, and if I ever do mine, this is the shiznit:
