Step 1 Step 2
STEP 1...Remove all the trim from the outside of headliner and sunvisors. Remove visors, dome light, grab handles, clothes hanger hooks, etc.; anything that holds up headliner. It is a good rule of thumb to start removing the trim from front to back. (what I'm saying is don't start in the middle...but have a pattern--it makes it simpler) STEP 2...This allows the headliner board to drop freely down so it can be removed from the automobile.
Step 3 Step 4
STEP 3...Remove the old material from the headliner board carefully so as not to destroy the board itself. Many headliner boards today are constructed from fiberglass...it has rigidity but also easily destroyed. The board should be completely cleaned of the old foam using a household brush (my preference) or grill brush. (you don't have to remove the old glue; it is almost impossible) STEP 4...The board should look something like this when you have removed the old deterioated foam from it.
Step 5 Step 6
STEP 5...Now place the material on the board allowing for about equal excess on each side; fold back at the middle and spray both the board and the foam side of the material with the aresol glue. (a good even coat) Now fold the material down over the board and rub it out (press cloth against board) with the palm of your hand. STEP 6...Your finished headliner should look something like this. Now trim the excess headliner fabric from the edges of the board, and cut holes for the visors, clothes hooks, etc.
Step 7
STEP 7...Replace the headliner the same way it came out and line it up using the holes you cut for the visors. Replace all the trim and you should have a finished product like this.
