It's sagging!

Not what you're thinking 😊

It's the headliner on my 04 DII. Trips to Baja in the past and being parked outside have worn out the adhesive.

Any suggestions? Much appreciated!

Now and before pic. Want to restore it back.

If I can recall correctly, your D2 is painted black ?

 

My boss has a darker colored D2 and had his headliner redone out here in sac for 180.00. Turned out really good and he had him do it in black with the tan plastics, stood out really well. 

 

Not sure if you would want to travel all this way out here for it, but his work is reputable and looks good.

Ron, mine is sagging right in front of my face. I used these fabric twist pins to keep it in place. Might be a good, cheap fix in the mean time.

Good idea Brenton.  Cheap fix till I get it really fixed (perhaps if it works, might just save my $$$ for something else).  Thanks again!  Hope all is well w/the leg.  I might hit the Lost Coast this week if you want to join me.  C yah!

Ok thanks Brenton.

I bought a pack of twist pins, painted them as close to the interior color, and walla - sagging no more.

 

And I used liquid stitch to glue the ends.

Ron,

 

I redid mine using materials I purchased from Headliner Express out of Florida.  They now even offer a kit with the spray adhesive to make it easier.  The job isn't bad but if someone is going to do it for $180 that just over what you're going to pay for materials.  The reason they fail is the headliner is a fabric bonded to a thin layer of foam.  The foam gets old and starts to deteriorate.  If it started in one place the rest will fail at some point.  To do the job you need to remove most of the upper trim and the headliner board comes out the back door.   Then place on a table and make a big mess with a wire brush taking off all the old foam.  Some spray adhesive, new material, a sharp knife and some scissors and a little patience is all it takes to recover.  I would recommend waiting until he next day and have then have someone help you reinstall.  I think I was a bit too anxious and I left a few dimples in mine that no one has commented on but i can see them.  I think it was from pushing too hard while the adhesive was still wet.

I've done headliners in other vehicles exactly like Jason says, just using generic material.  But if somebody will do it for $180, I'll take that deal all day long.

 

In fact, I have a sagging headliner in the '88 that I need to take to them.  Maybe I can get it up there after the MORG.

I think I'd happily pay that as well. I bought new material 14 months ago and still haven't gotten around to it...

Thanks guys.  Agreed $180 is a good price.  For now, the temp fix worked so def consider this when the headliner falls apart again.

 

Cheers!

Yup, i'm in the same boat. I actually got the headliner material (has to be 64" wide vs the normal 60" for the discos fwiw) about 2 years ago. Pulled the headliner to replace the rear sunroof tracks in March of 2016, still haven't managed to get it put back in over a year later. Why do today what I can put off until tomorrow seems to be the mantra in regards to my headliner... :)

I am familiar with this strategy.

Hi DHapple,
Could you find out where exactly in sac your boss went? I’m looking for a place now to take my D2 and here in Monterey can’t seem to find a place and $180 sound good! And yes the black on tan looks killer and that’s what I would do and will repaint my tan parts to make them pop..

Hi Henry,

 

That's Justin you're looking for, not me.  I never had a headliner done I'm afraid, though that did seem like a great deal.  You might try reaching out to him via PM as he's not as active on the forum as he used to be.  Or you could call him at British Car Service in Sacramento.  He's a service writer there and usually is the guy answering the phone.

I think we paid about the same through Exclusive British European in Campbell for the headliner on our RRC.  Might be worth checking out, they are under new owner ship and Nick is awesome.
