[DML] Re: Head liner



I have seen it done with sandbags. Easy to position, not concentrated
over an area, and easy to adjust. Trickiest parts are the areas over
your head, deep compound curves.

easily compressed. And they don't rebound quickly from the
compression. If you were use clothes pins to clamp this material you
might end up with semi-permanent to permanent indentations where the
clips were. Proper use of the right spray adhesive, such as 3M
Headliner adhesive, will cause the material to stick very will with no
clamping whatsoever. Joe Kuchan

that is somewhat fragile. These forms are held in with plastic
"Christmas Trees" that are a friction fit. You will want to pull these
forms away at these trees to keep the forms from breaking apart. There
are trim removal tools that will assist with this and are pretty
resonably priced usually. Once you have the forms out ( the large one
in the middle will be a bit trickier with the visors and lamp to deal
with), you can clean them up and then recover them with new padded
headliner material. There are several places on the internet selling
material and you will have lots of choices for colors and styles. For
glue, I prefer the 3M heavy-duty spray. Plan on having lots of clothes
pins or light clamps to help hold the material in place around the
edges as you will need to wrap an extra inch or so of material around
the back side. Have patience with the door headliner pieces as they
are like bowls when it comes to getting the material stretched and
adhered so that they look good.Just some tips. I did mine in an
afternoon and while I had the visors off, gave them a good
cleaning.DarylJerry Harry <jlharry@...> wrote:How do I remove the head
