Headliner fabric question

Redid my visors, now all I have left is my soundbar and headliner. However, I have this giant thin black sheet I would like to use, but was told the glue would seep through the sheet and it would be visible? Should I even bother trying it or no?

Planning on redoing mine soon too. Are you planning on using a bedsheet as headliner? I would only imagine that glue would definately show through that.

I replaced the headliner in another vehicle using "Joanne's" headliner fabric and "specific" headliner spray glue. Make sure you use specific headliner glue otherwise it won't stay stuck.

The headliner spray contact cement that I've seen comes out of the can almost like a mist.

If that's the case, as long as you do 3-4 really light coats about 5 minutes apart or so, you should get a nice coat that won't show through.

Just remember to practice laying it on without cement a few times before you attempt the real thing. Once that stuff touches, it's stuck!!

Yep, time to go get a headliner from a junkyard. Sprayed the headliner and sprayed the sheet, went to lay the sheet back down and a gust of wind blew through my garage. Looks awful

You need 2 people to do it - you and an assistant. I did mine in the "Living room."

Go to any local dealerships part's department and buy a couple cans of CRC Healiner Spray. Spray the whole board and the back of the fabric down and let it set up for about 10 minutes before putting them together. The glue won't seep through that way.
