re-doing my headliner

i was looking into redoing my headliner because its grey and i have all kinds of grease and dirt marks all over it and i cant stand it... ive been looking into this i already know how to remove the headliner and all its not sagging or anything like that just not happy with the dirt and grease marks... my questions are...

1. should i leave the old headliner on an re-wrap over it and same with a.b.and c pillars or should i peel the old headliner off? and if so has anyone peeled it off?

2.i want to use a pattern fabric possibly leaning to maybe a plad or houndstooth type look not to sure yet but what is a good material and could i get this material at a local fabric store in a pattern look that i want?

3.how much will i need for the headliner a.b.c pilars?

4final what glue should i use i saw alot of people use the 3m fabric adhesive and for the plastic trim pieces and the handles is there a way to paint them or just leave them? most likely gonna leave them....

thanks in advance guys!

I have the same issue, previous owner shot mine full of cigarette holes...I was thinking of plaid as well. Isn't that a vw thing? Is it a pain in the ass to take off? Do automotive shops fix this?

Denny, Nick has a sedan. Though, it should be pretty similar in the gluing and wrapping and such but the deinstall and reinstall will be different. As for that, hit up Chris (armyguy). I'm pretty sure he wrapped his headliner recently.

I did mine in micro-Suede. If your going to redo your headliner and are thinking about re-painting your trim, that's the time to do it. You have to remove all the pillar trim to get the headliner out anyways.

Also if the material on your headliner isn't falling off or anything, I recommend giving the headliner a good cleaning and just putting the new fabric over the existing stuff. I used 3M Super Trim Adhesive and found it to be great, the Part number is 08090.

Also I would ask Chris (Armyguy) about the sunroof cover, I couldn't find a DIY when I did mine and ended up doing it in the car with the sunroof cover still attached...big pain in the ass. LoL.

I just pulled my fabric off, soaked the glue and used a wire brush to remove the glue that was left, in the link i put at the bottom, you can somewhat see its a white thin plastic, its on top of the black celica

^This, I repainted all the pillars black w/ trim spray paint

I used an adhesive that said 300 strength or something like that and its still holding up strong, I tried to find it on the Jo-ann's website but i couldnt find it, I did find this though, not sure how long it would last .
Headliner Spray Glue*: home decor notions *: sewing*: *Shop | Joann.com


Also I would ask Chris (Armyguy) about the sunroof cover, I couldn't find a DIY when I did mine and ended up doing it in the car with the sunroof cover still attached...big pain in the ass. LoL.

and here is the DIY I did for those coupes that have a sunroof... not sure if its the same for a sedan, if it is let me know.

I didnt have handles, and for the visors i just didnt cut the holes out in the middle for the little clips that hold them in, just at the ends for the wink mirror brackets, and no they're all the same i believe, mines a rally one from Amazon. yea i just peeled off the fabric, i used a wire brush and water to remove the glue, i'll put pix on here so you can see..







just laying it over so we could cut it to a closer form, top right of pic you'll see the glue i used, its loctite i belive, it was the strongest one out of the 3, which i believe was 300 strength, went from 100,200,300...

awesome!! and those b pillars were a pain in the ass im about to start on the sunroof assembly.. when you laid the carpet on the head liner how much glue did you spray and how to you put it down from the middle out and also did you have a heat gun handy for wrinkles?

ok so everything is rapped except the headliner and what is the best way to get the old foam off the headliner i tried hot water, steel brush which just tears the headliner itself up from the brissels and im out of options someone told me acetone or thinner but i think it will destroy the foam on the headliner? ive been peeling but its not working at all??
