New headliner installed - picture!

If anybody is interested - I, along with my dad and uncles, are selling these headliners that include the headliner board and the fabric of your choice installed, with free shipping, on Home - Grizzly Fabrication. We are doing these as a side project but hope to go bigger very soon, we just opened up a shop with fabrication tools and everything. Let me know guys!

WE ALSO SELL A DIY KIT FOR $75.00.

So I got around to replacing the headliner in my XJ. I chose the Realtree Camo Pattern. I chose to keep the sound bar covered to maintain a clean look.

Looks awesome man. Did you order the fabric online? Was that headliner fabric with foam on it, or is it single sheet?

nothing says "white trash" like realtree camo.... That being said, I LIKE IT! ! ! My headliner is sagging and was actually thinking of putting something other than the ol' boring grey back on it... I hope you don't mind if i borrow the idea. I was also thinking digital camo, but haven't had the best luck finding it.

Well, I pulled the headliner board from a pull-a-part Jeep. I took it home, scrubbed it down really well, then applied my material with a brand of adhesive from Auto Zone. The only advice that I've got if you do it yourself is to take your time with it. I'm starting my own headliner business, you can order the whole board already installed with the fabric of your choice for a pretty cheap price. More info on this is available if anybody is interested.

To the OP, good luck with the business. Sounds pretty sweet.

Just curious you just used a normal sheet of fabric glued on to the headliner right? Cause headliner material I have seen has a small foam layer attached to the fabric. I was just curious if you used single sheet, and not foam backed, if it reveals ripples/imperfections more? Also if you used non foam backed if you noticed any loss of noise/temperature insulation? I would assume there wouldn't be but can't hurt to ask.

Thanks.

I used the board and a double layer of fabric, it actually has reduced a lot in noise and I could tell a major difference when it rained. I did a headliner today using the foam backing, same fabric and the noise was dead even. Believe it or not, with the foam attached it was actually a little more imperfect as opposed to just the fabric. The one I did for my trail rig (see picture), is very smooth and I haven't had anybody point out an imperfection (yet). The adhesive is so strong and the fabric so tightly placed that you can even try to pinch it and pull it down.
