Headliner drooping
« on: March 08, 2016, 08:47:06 PM »
I am looking for some advice from folks. I have an '86 Trans Am which is all original other than the tires and a relay. So the question is when she comes out of storage I will need to address the headliner that is unfortunately starting to droop.

Itís just the fabric that is drooping and due to riding around without the T-Tops on so the fabric stretched in the traditional places. How does having a new headliner in her affect the originality in your eyes? Can I use the same materials and just reattach it? The board is in great shape. Iíve updated headliners before but am looking for your impression on the originality. The car only has 9,800 miles and car is unrestored. It has been featured in the publication before. Thanks for letting me know your opinion.

I would bring the car to a person who does interiors and they can spray it up again. As long as there is no dust or Shading material.  I had to replace mine on my '84 Trans Am. Looks good and holding up well.
