I been thinking, which is a bad sign. Blame it on the post below about sagging headliners. My headliner is also saggy, and I don't like it. After perusing the instructions on how to fix it up, it sure looks like something I could handle. My question (the subject was a little hint) is what are the possibilities of my recovering the headliner (and the A- and C-pillar covers) in Alcantara, the fake suede BMW and some other manufacturers are putting in their higher-spec cars? I love suede, and I think having a bit in the car would be quite sweet. Does anyone have any idea how much a headliner's worth of Alcantara would cost me? Is this even feasible? I wonder if the Alcantara would be able to mold into the nooks in the headliner well enough...
