Headliner

Postby dcook1009 » Sat Sep 27, 2014 8:04 am

I have what looks like all the original pieces for my '76CC headliner, but the panels have began to sag down in the middles and are causing the middle strip to pop loose all the time. What is under the fabric and what could I get to replace it? I just bought this truck about 6 months ago and am finding little nuances that need fixing. Wish I could post some pictures so you guys could see exactly what I am talking about.

One of the members on here, PUNKROCKPILOT used black textured wallboard as headliner material. I think that is a really good option to go with and would be curoius to see how its holding up. That stuff is made to use in public restrooms so it should be very durable towards moisture and humidity. It also appears that he replaced the original plastic center strip with a metal factory strip, probably out of a regular cab headliner. With some slight modification, the strip will fit up and match the rest of your trim. See attached link.

Thanks PA. Do you know or does anyone know of where I can go to replace the middle plastic strip? It has since broken on me trying to keep these sagging panels held up. Is there an easy alternative? I have seen some restoration jobs around the net where they just ended up using the outside rails to hold up one solid piece instead of two separate pieces divided in the middle. Options anyone?

Hello all!

I know this is an older thread I started, but I have a request for all you members that have crews with complete headliners. Can you guys post pics of your truck's headliners? I am needing ideas and the internet is just not coming through with pics of ideas or jobs that people have done on our trucks. I am just curious what the best option would be, whether that is back with a cardboard style or maybe having a piece of sheetmetal fabricated to fit. I also have some ideas on putting in an aftermarket dome light right in the middle to give the cab some more light than the stock back light offers. Help needed and all ideas welcome. Thanks in advance to all.
