what kind of material for headliner

What kind of material have you used for a replacement headliner? What would you different, were there any issues with the spray adhesive bleeding through? Thanks

I did black denim on one of my XJs and it looked awesome. Wish I had pictures.

Use CRC Headliner Adhesive (find a car dealer in your area that has it in their parts department) and coat the liner with a can and the board with another and let them setup for about 10 minutes before putting them together. Nothing should come through and it will be a lot easier to spread the replacement liner out properly.

Looks like this but make sure it's the headliner adhesive and not the regular spray adhesive.

Fairlanephil, I like the last pic, definitely different so long as it doesn't give you a headache when you get in.

The local fabric superstore had the OEM color with the foam backing so I just got that, les than $50.00 I don't figure I will own it when the foam rots.

I have headliner material and that bubble wrap waiting me to start the project. I was planning on putting the bubble stuff under the rigid board thingy in hopes of insulating from noise and temps somewhat.

Anyone had success thing what I'm thinking?

Look for the foam backed headliner fabric at Joanns.

Do not do black headliner. You can see every spec of dirt, hair, etc that gets stuck to the headliner.

Anyone have thoughts pro/con on putting Monstaliner on the inside of the roof with the headliner installed over it?

I am thinking it would add a slight bit of insulation and a small amount of sound deadening.

I too am one for using foam backed cloth. Just use 3-4 cans of super 77, let the thing air dry over night in a place you're okay with smelling like glue, slap it back in. It was one of the first things I did and has held up for at least a year now
