Re: what type of fabric to use for headliner? (vdubnut1)

Hey, I just did mine this summer and I went to Jo Ann fabrics to get it. Doesn't really matter what you get, anything that floats your boat really. I used a black with a really subtle gray patern in it and I'm really happy. I went in there looking for a really thin, lightweight fabric. Figured that'd stick to the foam board better than a thick material, ya know? common sense

Re: what type of fabric to use for headliner? (VroomVroomRedGTI)

Quick question... I'm looking at buying a GTi that may need a headliner so I was trying to come up with something really cool to use as a fabric. I was thinking that a regular bolt of fabric wouldn't be wide enough to do the headliner... did you run into this problem?

Re: what type of fabric to use for headliner? (crazyreesie)

I was thinking about that before I started.... what if it isn't wide enough? Well, it was. The fabric on those big rolls is folded in half. so you're getting twice as much fabric as you thought you would. I never knew this.
If it wasn't wide enough I was going to stitch two sections together with some red thread. Probably woulda looked pretty cool, just more red accents in the interior. might not look as good on your car.
