Upholstery shop to do headliner in Maryland?

Anyone know an upholstery shop that can do a headliner for a reasonable price in Maryland?

Edit: 20 Dec 2011
Found a company here in Baltimore that is going to replace my factory headliner with factory material including foam for $150. My neighbor just had hers done and it looks...well totally factory. They came in with a father and son team and disassembled the headliner, stripped the old material off and then used a paint gun like device to spray glue on both the headliner and headboard before sticking them together. Total time was 45 minutes and that included the uninstall and installation. I was looking at 70 in materials using the good glue and that wasn't even with the factory headliner with foam. I was impressed with the quality and workmanship. The company was called Mobile Headliner 410-256-3618.

This does not really answer your question but I would do something cool with it.

I've done a few headliners. It's actually pretty easy. I had plans to do a desert digital camo in my car, but decided not to since I want something new. I still have the fabric though. Make sure you get the fabric with the foam backing. I searched for mine on google and the website had a lot if different patterns. Jo-anne fabric sells black and grey I think.

Tear off the old one and use a wire brush to get all of the foam off. Don't go into the board to far.

Lay out new headliner fabric and cut to size with a 1/2 inch over hang. Don't cut out any holes just yet.

Spray adhesive to both the fabric and the backing in sections. Don't do it all at once or it can start drying when you are trying to stretch it out.

Once you get the fabric tight and straight, wrap the over hang around the edges using the same gluing method.

Let that settle for a few hours then from the top, of the backing opposite the headliner, cut out your mounting holes, dome light, and speakers if you have them with a small over hang to wrap the edges.

Glue those back the same way and reinstall.

Takes a few hours and your arm get tired from brushing but you will save a lot of money and have the pride of doing it your self.

One more note, don't use too much glue, just enough to get a medium covering, other wise it will soak through, depending on the color it will be a little darker.

Did that on my first one I did.

No. The above is the way to go. Joann Fabrics carries a variety of headliner materal with foam backing. Use ONLY 3M headliner adhesive. It's expensive because it works.

The technical advice you get from me here is worth exactly what you paid me for it. Warranty issues will be reimbursed at double what you paid me for the advice.

With the material being $10+/yard and you need 3 yards and the adhesive at $20/ can and you need at least 2 I decided I wanted to use a professional. $90 in materials seems to be alot.

Not yet. This will likely be part of the spring rehab of the interior.
