    hello community!

    since i was last here, we've added two munchkins to the roster, picked up a subaru outback for the wife, and i replaced my extended cab 7.3 with a crew cab 7.3.

    two kids took pretty much any wrench time, and the crew cab 7.3 took what remained to get it fitted and sorted. lots of ignored maintenance and upkeep, plus an old man emu suspension kit.

    new truck, and another new hobby i dont have time for strapped to the back:



    in that time, the zhp has been a rock solid daily/commuter. still love the car. was getting a little threadbare from the use, headliner especially.

    still cleans up nice:



    it needed a good scrub and fresh headliner,

    anyway, on to the pics:







    gross!





    pull drivers seat and headliner comes out back left:



    saggy saggy:





    this part sucked every bit as bad as you think it did:







    squeaky clean and blown with compressed air:



    3yd of headliner fabric from joanns, $49. only needed 2, coulda done it for $30. considered alcanatara, but $50 vs $500 kept me on this route.



    3M headliner adhesive, $22/can, DO NOT use 3M 77.



    apply glue heavily to both sides, allow to tack, then start pressing:









    done. i shot glue over the edge right into the center of the headliner. i am an idiot. i am an idiot. i am an idiot.



    barrff...embarrasing



    done done:



    am waiting on an order from ECS to put a ribbon on it: 2x C pillars, brake light cover, headrest guide, sunroof switch panel, rear lower seat sill panel, and a handful of trim clips and bits and bobs. everything was pretty brittle coming apart. it really needs A and B pillars, but they look decent enough with the fabric pulled off. and a rear decklid, but i'm not spending $400 on that.

    anyway, comments or questions welcome.

    PK

    Pull the rear deck and spray it with fabric paint. Simple Spray fabric spray paint dye or Dupli-Color makes a fabric dye but I think I read on m3forum that the former is a better match. I used Dupli and it worked fine with tint.

    Could. I used that stuff on an e30 decklid a decade ago doing an interior color conversion. It worked, looked ok, but came out pretty crusty feeling. Maybe I didn't do it right.

    Damn, that headliner turned out great! Thank you for sharing the process. I take it you had bad experience with 3M 77 adhesive, hence the headliner adhesive?

    Not personally. Every headliner diy I read was adamant about not using it so I shared the note here. Apparently it doesn't withstand overhead applications or the extreme heat a headliner sees.
