Replace Headliner?
#1
Hey Guys,

I am going to replace my headliner and was curious about those who have already accomplished this. I have a new one from CJ's and the old one is still in place. What is the best procedure/ order to remove.

Is is a good idea to try to take it out uncut to allow use the headliner for a template to pretrim?

What adheasive would be recommended for edges?

Just how difficult is this?

I appreciate any replies.

Not to hard to do just time comsuming & I think it's best to remove the rear windsheild & lay out the new one in the sun before installing..forget about using the old one to "pretrim" in the real world that never seems to work... heres a good article

How much did they charge?

Did you strip out the old before taking it to them?

I think it was around 150 and they done it all.

I had a quote for $250 but thought that was high. I do know these guys do outstanding work, and have worked for me before. Just hard to shop around with the car stuck in the garage...

My thought was if I could do it myself, that is money toward other parts that are critical...you all know the deal...

Here is a good link , thats help me:
http://www.mustangmonthly.com/howto/head...index.html

The instalation is easy, but you must remove the rear window, the windshild and interior trim ...
You need a good glue to glue the headliner on the front and rear window frame. I hold it in place with clambs. Cut the headliner after instalation.
It must be warm in the garage when you stretch the headliner! Small crinkles go back after few days.
And make it with a helper...

Hope that helps
David

Had mine done at paint when all the glass was already removed so..... Do understand wanting to save money also but on the other hand break one of the glasses and there went your savings.

Agreed. And also you need to figure the worst care scenario but that said, since there is trim all around the edges, I can't see why it must be wrapped around under the glass. I admit I have no experience in this sorta thing, or restoring Mustangs for that matter, but learning as I go. One would assume that with todays adheasives, it could be made to stick and use the trim to cover any edge imperfections.
