View Full Version : Found a good vinyl headliner material.

I posted a similar post over on the 67-72chevytrucks website but I wanted to post here too just for the GMC nuts.

So, I have the original headliner inserts for my suburban but they are not in any shape to be reused. So I contacted SMS fabrics and they said they had it but wanted too much money in opinion. I am not completely worried about factory correct (although I will be buying my OG seat material from them), but as far as the headliner is concerned I just want something that looks good.

So on my way home from work, I stopped by a local little fabric store. While digging through the vinyl bolts, I found a thicker type vinyl that had an awesome vintage design to it. Unfortunately it was pink, but I bought 3 yards anyways.

I came home and starting installing it with an 1/8" foam backer. Then I prepped the new inserts with vinyl paint prep and sprayed them the same color as the rest of the interior. Let me know what you guys think, I think it looks amazing and the casual observer will think it's perfectly factory.

It may not be all original, but it looks great to me. The lines running perpendicular to the cross beams look 60's with a modern vibe.
