#48974, "RE: Starting my AWD Conversion"
In response to In response to 28


          

The existing headliner was a little gross from someone's greasy head rubbing on it for a decade or so. I am focusing on a black interior, so why not recover with black fabric. My local fabric store actually carries "headliner fabric" in a variety of colors. It has a foam backer and everything. Headliner adhesive from the parts store and gentle smoothing of the fabric clung to all of the contours:




I also disassembled and recovered the sun visors. They are a plastic clamshell design. You have to break the adhesive to pop them apart, but it is fairly easy. You can use the old fabric as a template to cut the new material. A little headliner adhesive and teeth on the clamshell holds the fabric until you can epoxy it shut. The fabric pulls tight and it looks surprisingly good:




I used satin black exterior trim paint for any plastic parts and vinyl dye on the weather stripping around the sun roof. It looks pretty good installed:
