Do not even try that method. It will look exactly how you can imagine it looking. I removed my headliner and had the fabric replaced for under $100.00. The shop would have removed and installed for another $50.00 if I remember correctly. The fabric was of American origin, but ALMOST looks the same (a little nubbier, if that's a word). So far, even my Dad (who is mister do it exactly right) said it looked good. If you want original fabric you can buy it of the net, but then you will end up spending about what you can buy a new one for from John Roberts ($350.00). Auto Headliners of Texas, 458-3927 did my work. Keep in mind that headliner removal is not for the timid. The backing is easily broken rendering it unusuable. However, if you attempt the removal and break it, you can go new and end up with a perfect headliner.

Anyone know if there is a wasy that I can re glue the headliner with out taking it out of the car? I hear somewhere that they make a syringe that you can squirt glue up into the headliner. Is this true?
