Was that for a Slicktop or sunroof model?

I just did a liner for a Slicktop. Turned out well for my first time. Only 4 more to do... [emoji849]

Large fabric stores often have headliner material and the adhesive.

Do you guys recommend buying an OEM fabric or should I just buy one from a fabric store? If so should I do it all on my own or should I take my car to TJ since I live about 20 mins from the border and get it done over there.

Prolly cheaper and faster in TJ. [emoji41]

Just be sure what thickness they use for the sunroof liner as it can't be too thick or it will jam the mechanism.

Yea true. Where did you buy your headliners from? @BlackBMWs

eBay in Texas, $60 shipped I think. 3m 90 strength adhesive from Lowes. 3 1/2 cans for a Slicktop headliner. Prolly really would take 2 1/2 to 3 cans. Learning I let the adhesive dry to long.

That's not too bad. I'm thinking of doing it myself, my only worry though is that I have a sunroof. That's tho only part I'm not looking forwards too. Imma have to do some research on how to do it on a sunroof.

yes, I have 3 sunroof headliners and a Cali left to go. The Slicktop was my learning experience. It wasn't hard, just like most things, prep was the big thing to get the old headliner cleaned and preped for the glue.

Lessons learned:

clean the headliner really well for the best adhesion
Let the glue get tacky, but not dry.
Have extra cans of glue available
Don't multitask. :)
definitely worth the $80 to get it done, especially since I have a total of 5 to do.
Way easier to have a spare headliner to work with to not rush the prep.


Good luck with your project. Cheers! :cool:

Anyone tackled this with the headliner mounted?

You mean with the panel still attached to the roof? I don't see how it's possible.

For how easy it is remove, you would really just be wasting time doing it installed.

I've done two diy headliners, my ti and my wife's mini-van. Bought the fabric from a fabric store which had a nice selection of colors and shades to choose from. Got very close matches to oem, close enough for me, anyway.

I was planning on going to a JoAnn's to look for a fabric. Is there a specific "headliner material", or do I bring the original material and try to find a match?

It seems it's a light fleece-type material. Is it possible to use other fabrics (cotton prints/perforated pleather)? Trying to match the thickness seems smart, is weight involved as well?

I would never attempt that with the messy residue from all the cleaning to begin with. Then the over spray from spraying the adhesive.

That's just two of the basic reasons not to attempt with the headliner still in place. There are many more functional reasons you need to take it out to accomplish this task.
