look good! wls also sells a kit for like 60 bucks shipped. they give you a special brush for removing the old foam. I took two hours to do the whole thing. definately worth it.

I dunno, I'm getting kinda tired of the condensation dripping from my top on cold days.

Looks good man.

Agreed. I have same problem. It's a common problem for guys in cold climates. You turn on the heater, and with no insulation, it sweats a lot, even until dripping. If a car load of people, it really get's bad as others breath condensates and you all have each other's breath dripping on you. Gross. Plus it can cause seats to mold, and carpet to mold - if you have carpet.

I'm going to buy a TJ headliner that is made of some type of shape molded insulating foam. I'm not sure if it has fabric on it, and don't care. I hope it doesn't have fabric (one less thing that can mold).

It's guaranteed to keep hardtop cool on summer days and warm and no drips on winter days with heater on. All I have to do is take off hardtop, flip upside down, and glue it in place.

That looks great, very good tutorial.

My brother had his headliner re-upholstered and he used a black vinyl snakeskin, he said it cost about 80 bucks for the materials. whats nice is its water-resistant so if mud hits it you can easily scrub it off.

just another idea

I'm in the process of this... I did my visors already, and the headliner is out. I am doing the exact same color fleece on mine as well. a lot of people are trying to convince me to only use headliner fabric, but if its held up well, ill continue with the fleece...

Looks GREAT!!

How many of that "lot of people" have ever actually done this? Any of them that have not, tell them to shut it and shove it until they have real life experience to give you...

thanks for the motivation. haha. the real reason behind them discouraging me from using regular material is because if its not thick enough (in their case) the glue shows through. where the glue was thicker in places, the fabric stuck, and where it wasnt thick enough, it fell after awhile. I'm just trying to learn from their mistakes. and I'm definately using heavy duty headliner/carpet adhesive, and not elmers spray glue. also learning from their mistakes

I'll definitely be taking advantage of this if I can't persuade my car audio friend to do it for me as part of the reimbursement for me pulling an all-nighter replacing his clutch. My XJ's headliner is trashed.

I did a similar project in my old Scout II.

Spray adhesive works really well and is much easier to work with.
