Redoing the headliner, visors, and HUD. on the Tona

Well, since I do aircraft interiors for a living, and automotive upholstery on the side Ill post up some pictures and how to's on doing a headliner the "professional" way.



Pulled the headliner out, the only trim pieces that need to come off are the A-piller trim, and they really only need to be moved out of the way. After the sunv visors, HUD, and the 2 metal brackets in the headliner are removed the headliner will slid foward of the back to trim pieces, and you can pull it out of the either door.



Next I set everything on my table to be stripped. first removed all the trim so that the new material could be glued in place, and the trim installed back on.


The guy that tried doing this before loved duct tape and what looks to be like Seel tape. I will be removing this and gluing in and mesh if the headliner is crubled at all.




The glue I spray is Weldwood Landau top adhesive.


Cleaned off the old foam by wire brushing it off, then I glued in some material to reinforce where it was cracked. It was pretty bad in some spots.

I always glue one half at a time as you can see. Spray the glue on both sides and let it tack for 5 mintues before spreading out the material. If the glue your using is not yellow like this stuff, and you dont spray it out of a gun, then its not the right stuff!


After I had everything smoothed out I flipped it over and trimmed about 2" outside in order to fold the material over.



Then I spray glue once again on the outside of the back side of the headliner and folded the material over. Then I cut out for the brackets, HUD, and cut slits for the sun visors.



Went back in the car after that, had it back in the car within just a couple minutes since I only removed the 2 necesarry trim pieces.



Next I need to do the visors, and HUD when I get the time. Just got some material in for a set of GLHS seats so its time to start back on them.

Re: Redoing the headliner, visors, and HUD. on the Tona

I finished the Sun visors this morning. This involves cutting away the old material first, then undoing the clips to unfold the visor. Then I glued on the material, folded the material around, and then folded the visor back together. It was a real PITA. About half of the clips will break, but dont worry, it will still snap back together just fine.

After its back together I trimed about 1/2" away from the edge for the mirrors, slit the corners, and popped the mirrors back in.

Sorry about having no "in process" pictures. I was to much into it to take any pictures.

No Shag? LOL, looks good. I did about the same thing, but I used crafting glue instead of the paint gun. But it really wasn't that hard, just want to make sure you take your time and do it properly.

Crafting glue?

I didnt really take my time, but this isnt the first headliner I have done either. Did the headliner in less than 20 minutes. Back in the car in a couple more minutes.

Re: Redoing the headliner, visors, and HUD. on the Tona

Yep, it worked GREAT, and was CHEAP. Just go to either a Hobby store and get the spray can glue used for cloth and it works.

But if you didn't take your time, then we will chock it up to luck, LOL. J/K, but for anybody that does it for the first time, just take your time, it is easier to take it slower and make sure things are right and not have to pull the fabric back off because of wrinkles.

Re: Redoing the headliner, visors, and HUD. on the Tona

Finished the HUD. Oh what a royal PITA that was. My material would not stretch enough so I had to put a seam in the front, and fold it around but I made it look nice.

What material did you use? I am getting ready to do my Daytona's T-bar headliner and I am wanting to get some new material. But it looks good.

Lol, it was a PITA doing mine as well. The original fabric on the overhead console does not stretch, so I traced it out and even gave myself an extra inch all the way around for error. During the practice fitting, I could not get it to fit all around without any folds. So I decided that I would have to have a seem somewhere. I put mine in the middle in the back:

There's a place here in Chicago called Hancock Fabrics. They're having a massive 1/2 off sale now. Prices are very cheap, they have some nice material there. I bought a crapload of black vinyl that they had on their "cut offs" table for about $3 a yard. They also carry headliner material as well for about $10 a yard. Try local fabric stores in your location.

But for the biggest and automotive-specific fabrics, try DLT Corporation - Du Bois Fabrics, Lite Products, TUSCO

Lucky for me, one of their main warehouses is right here in Chicago so I can go and see the material with my own eyes and feel it before I buy it, but you can also order it.
