Hi All,
There were some recent thoughts on headliner fixes, just for fun sharing my project over the last couple days,
Step one - take all the attachments out, some are a little bit confusing at first but altogether it is simple

Make sure you take of the plastic posts at the back and front, I left the center post with seatbelts attached and was able to flex the headliner out

it brushed up nicely with some spots a little imperfect, so I used a paint with texture to hide the imperfections

I did the reinstall by myself, but I recommend a second set of hands, a little tricky, and I am happy with the result, no fabric liner to fall on anyone's head again, lol

it is just an interior spray paint with a white fleck in it for texture, not a perfect match but is ok with the interior black accents

I am doing this very project as we speak.

It was surprisingly easy to do.

The headliner, the backing rather, is now resting on my lawn.

The old glue was mostly dust, for remove just use a brush.

Now I am trying to locate the right color headliner.

The A/B pillar covers were disgusting. Remove the felt(?) coating it had with gasoline. I will probably just paint it with matt primer to give it a nice textured finish (see pic).

Yes perfect, and to those asking a stiff brush takes off most of the glue, some was a bit sticky, came off best with just balling it up with my hand, fortunately there was not ot much, the brush on a drill did not work, cheers

This may go against conventional wisdom but a garden hose makes easy work of getting all the old glue off. No hours of brushing required, no clogged up balls of sticky mess all over the floor.

Garden hose with slight pressure (do not use a pressure washer) leave it in the sun for a day or 3 to dry. Done.

Interesting. Many years ago there were adverts for a spray on flock finish. You could get a dash re flocked that had been bleached by the sun. Mainly in the States I recall. I don't think I have seen any adverts recently. That would be an option for the headling instead of trying to glue a new fabric.

I like the idea, looks good too.
Was/is there any residual smell or fumes to deal with? I remember someone spraying the inside of a mk3 Cortina roof many years ago and it stank for months afterwards!

Gallon, I'm positive you've got my old P38. That sticker under the cubby, I had that made and placed on there after I saw it on some early UK models, but not on any US models. Of course, I regret trading it in. It's the white one with black lettering and rear lamp guards?

Sounds like a good idea did you just leave the seat belt pillars only and take the ones near the windscreen off ? I know what you mean about the state of the covering on the pillars I'm going down the paint route myself
