How would you prep the headliner board after removing the cloth material?

I used a plastic scrapper. Like a dollar putty knife I had laying around and a real coarse sanding sponge. Then vacumed up the mess. Some spots were real easy and some spots like underneath the visors sucked.

Just did mine. Went to Joannes fabric store with a sun visor and matched up the color.

Make sure you get an extra yard or two of fabric. Would suck to find out you under cut yourself. Also got 2 cans of the 3m spray glue. Rather have too much glue than not enough for this project.
Scrape off the old glue with a hand wire brush and vac up the mess. Then spray the glue liberally and allow to dry to a tack. Too little time and it will bleed through the sponge backing and to the liner. Do ft. X ft. Sections at a time and work your way out from the center if possible.
Also, wearing rubber gloves helped my hand slide easily over the surface of the material to matte it down without fear of staining with oils or catching the fabric with a nail or something. Just my .02.
Hardest part for me was the fact that I broke some trim clips while removing the trim. Had to jb weld them back in place and tape them still until the jb set.
Oh well, its all good now.

I pulled mine out and painted it black with truck bed liner spray. It looked alright everywhere except for where the headliner board had 3 foot deep scratches that you could see down the side. I would not recommend painting it. It was pretty redneck and smelled awful. I recommend redoing it with grey foam backed fabric from Joann's fabric. Be sure to use a coupon otherwise it is expensive. You need 3 yards and that leaves about a foot on each end extra. I do not recommend getting the black fabric, every dirt spec and hair shows and it looked dirty. Grey is much better. For glue, I used 2 cans of 3m 77 from Walmart. I redid my headliner for the second time about two years ago and it has not fallen anywhere and that is with Atlanta heat. The first time I redid my headliner I used 3m 90 and it was more expensive and bled through. The 3m 77 will stink for two weeks so get ready for that. FOLLOW the instructions for letting the glue get tacky or you will regret it. The fabric will fall in spots if you do this wrong. I divided the board into three sections when I was glueing and smoothing the fabric down. When you smooth down the fabric DO NOT press down hard. All it takes it a light smooth slide across the fabric and up the side. Don't press hard or you will see indentations where you did, especially on the sides. Have fun getting the headliner board out out. I recommend having another person to help you with the removal and putting it back in place. Good luck.
