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!

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

You should do suede. It's far down on my list of to-do lol.
+1, although this is what most people do, although i'm not too sure what mine is, i thought it was like a suede but its not lol, pics are in the link at the bottom

I'm gonna do mine this month so ill do a write up
Doooo eeet! lol if you need help lemme know!


Oh my god that would be amazing...I'd love to do it myself!
DOooooooo eeeeeeeeet Denny!

^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

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.
