New Headliner

Postby Shift1 » Wed May 04, 2016 2:43 pm

The old cardboard headliner decided it was done and fell down the other day.

I really wanted to make a one piece headliner to eliminate the center trim strip. Ended up giving up on that.

I used the same textured bathroom wall panels that others have used. I was pretty irritated to find that one sheet wasn't enough. Oh well, they were only $32 a piece anyway.

I decided to go a step further than the others I have seen and covered it with headliner material. Yes, I actually went into a Joann's Fabric store... they do have about 3 items that a man can use. $19 for that.

I tried to replace the center trim strip, but haven't had any luck finding a suitable replacement yet. Mine isn't too bad so it will do for now.

Turned out pretty good for a total investment of $83.

Looks good. It will last the life of the truck, that's for sure. Nothing like stopping by Joann Fabrics for some truck parts! :D

It looks real good. Sounds like a good deal, even though you had to use two sheets of the wall panel. It's still a fraction of what an upholstery shop would charge.

Looks great, nice work man.
I am Mouguluc. Why? Because I can't figure out how to change it.

When you say that you used bathroom wall panels, do you mean the textured fiberglass re-enforced plastic sheets? FRP?
