Caprice Wagon STARLINER fiber optic headliner

Fixed my droopy headliner, and threw in something for the kids!

Ok - That's pretty cool, I may have to steel that idea for my other car which needs a new headliner.

Any details on how you did this, what materials you used, how it turns on/off, etc?

Used one of these ebay kits.

Stripped the old fabric off..
Used a grill brush to remove all the old glue and fuzz.
Glued on a new headliner material (black)

Poked holes with an ice pick and threaded optic cable thru.

Hot glue each one in place..

350...

Installed, wired, tested, then snipped cables near flush to headliner material.
