You do it yourself. Take out old headliner board, rip the fabric off. Get ALL the foam off the board. Scrape it and sand. Then, spray contact glue on new foam-backed fabric (buy at JoAnn's) and the board, then smooth it down. Cut where needed. Reinstall. Like new!


This is the one in my mom's Caprice. I gave her the exact instructions above, and it looks good. She's 75... so you've got a chance. With the headliner, not her, lol.

Old cars, just like classic rock... 60s, 70s, 80s, and 90s!

x2 the aboves. I think I got the oxblood for my son's Monte from one of the specialty restorer outfits for reasonable price. Had to do some plastic epoxy on a piece near the visor that was cracked. Easy. Be sure to use the right spray adhesive. I think I used So-Fro Fabric for my Cady.

What's that ripped part right there behind.....

Nah, just kidding that HL looks great!

Oldhead -- I think u should give it a shot and DIY. There's another thread here too on how to do this. I really think your only option for something else is used and they're hard to find in great shape. I got a spare board but the material is shot and would need redone. You may find OEM new but it will be pricey. GL.

Edit - Oldhead - is this a Wagon? Not sure how those are but the process has to be the same. maybe some wagon guys will chime in.

Edit #2 - OK Oldhead, just got another idea for ya if your a little unsure doing DIY. You could check with a local upholstery shop and "could be" cheaper than u think. Just show the pics that jayoldschool posted to them and tell them you'll buy the material and have the board cleaned and do the hard work. Maybe they'll just glue it down for you at a reasonable cost? If it came to say $50-$100 you may find that worth it. You don't have to buy the glue or worry about messing up if the fine work concerns you. Ok, think I've run out of ideas. .

Guys, unless I am mistaken, Oldhead is like 80+ years old. Something to keep in mind.

Oldhead - an average market rate is anywhere from $200-$550. Maybe check your local Craigslist for headliner services. Ive seen places advertise them for $199 and less

I think we all made the assumption he was at least removing the HL himself. Getting the board out is just a little tricky not too physical. If not, drive it to an uppolsterer and write a check. At least he got some idea of what's involved.

Eggs akerry. Known. As the other other Bob offers, just positing DIYs as alternate to giving others opportunity to "cutting a fat hog and getting rich quik"if the spirit is willing. I know Oldhead knows how to search. Each step taken in turn is braindead straightforward, and if nothing else is pressing schedule-wise plus if this ain't a driver then quite easy to tackle.

Agreed, can probably find a shop for the $200 range.
Some areas have mobile guys that'll come to you for small jobs like a headliner.
It's all labor, and the wagon board is a PITA to remove.
