Junior, I'm going to have my belts done when that time comes. There are about 3 companies that I know of that redo them. I know you will let us know how they do for you.
Will do. I wrote to all three of them about a month or two ago when I was planning this project. The two besides SSnake-Oyl were higher priced, and couldn't do anything about the retraction spring or tension of the belts.
That's my primary concern since my belts appearance is excellent. They're not getting sent out to look good, I need the functionality taken care of.
Your headliner. About a year ago I had to do the headliner on my mother in law's Lesabre. JoAnn's Fabric has some nice material. I got two yards and it was under $20 and it might have been under $15 because I have their app. That was because I had to buy something for my car and the clerk insisted I have it to get discounts. The expensive part was the glue. Bob, 96Black, told me about some that was really sticky. I got 2 cans at AZ and that was about $40. Out, redo the headliner and back in in about 4 hours.
I'm going to farm out this project to another local guy. I had him redo the headliner in my Tahoe a few years ago, in black as well. I just dont have tha space to do the headliner myself, and for the price I'm getting it's not really worth my time. My guy will do it for $100. I sorta get friend of a friend pricing.
The only thing I'm not sure of is the quality of the backing of the headliner since I pulled one out of a junkyard car. My thinking on this is the same as the seatbelts, get the work done on another piece, so when the day comes to remove & replace in my car, I can knock it out in a day.
No matter what you do with our cars you have to bend the headliner a bit to get it out of the ca. So the Junkyard piece has a crack in the backing, and it's not as firm as a new piece, so I'll first get his opinion on whether or not it's worth doing anything, or if I should use my current headliner.
I was thinking that one it's installed it really won't make a differece, but I'll get his opinion on this.
Writing this reminds me that I need to get some dynamat like material for the roof.... I got a suggestion from guy on the Oldsmobile forum for some that I need to look into. The stuff I used on my tahoe was in 12" X 12" pieces @ $10/Ea. I'm looking to reduce the cost this time, so I'll report back on that too.
