Joanne Fabric makes actual headliner material just like factory with foam already attached to the back. It comes in many colors and is really inexpensive. The Sunday Joanne ad usually has a great coupon for anything purchased from their store. Oh...today's foam is much better than that of the 80's = 90's. Just be sure your glue doesn't degrade the foam. I used 3M spray for interiors.

Did you mention the Glue brand that you used? I don't see it. I replaced my headliner last year using a foam backed fabric I bought from a local auto reupholsterer. Unfortunately I didn't get a reference for the glue. My headliner was in for about a week when It started coming loose. Now I've got to start over.

He must have posted a pic of it on page 1, but the pic walked away leaving a red X, lolz. I've heard that the 3M spray-on adhesive is a great one to use.

Thanx for reviving this 3 year old thread. Time to redo mine.

Best headliner i've ever seen was a buddy of mine who took a bunch of old handkerchiefs and sewed them together then glued them up there on his XJ. looks pretty sweet. said it took him forever but i think it was worth it.

Most headliner glues suck, get some CRC headliner adhesive, works wonders and actually lasts. Let it set up like 10 min on both the liner and board before you put them together. Only place that I've found it is dealerships, most parts departments have it for like $7 a can.

Also you can use pretty much any fabric. I did black denim on one of my old XJ and it looks awesome as hell.

So can you just take the material off the old backing and re use it?
