I hope everybody had great weekend. We are wanting to repair the curling headliner that has failed from the Texas heat, so I am researching potential solutions. I am willing to bet many of you have already dealt with it, I just decided to cheat and get ours done before the GTG at Dinerman's on Saturday. Any advice for a permanent fix, either DIY or professional?

GM did not wrap the headliner around the front edge, most likely a cost saving measure.
That's the reason it curls.
I am having mine done by a professional with the color vinyl to match the seats.
My installer is also soundproofing the roof with Dynamite Lite.
That will help with the strain on the air conditioning in the heat and the strain on the heater unit in the cold weather in addition to a quite ride.

Be sure to post before and after pictures. That's on my bucket list. (My long Busket list)

I seem to recall Dictator tackling this problem awhile back. You might want to PM him. I know if he didn't fix one he will know someone who did. Also check Dictator's Library.

Thanks for the replies! I overlooked that in the Library, got distracted by how to fix a jillion other things. Just had all the A/C actuators replaced. i could use a key lock for the glove box door or a plug for the hole if anybody has an extra. Should have the interior in pretty good shape after the headliner is fixed. Everything working and looking good.

Yes, I tackled it and is on my SSR How to Library: Look up HEADLINER REPAIR

https://onedrive.live.com/?id=3EF39D9F5ADCE5E5!853&cid=3EF39D9F5ADCE5E5

Worked for a while but I took it to AutoStyles and had headliners done in SILVER material, wrapped and glued properly.

Only $200 buck to do both panels.

Dicktator

1. OEM coming un-glued.
2. Mine done in Silver Leatherette
3. One of our Florida Fanatics had his done in Black Valore

There's a number on the face of the console lock. Take a magnifying glass with you. A pair of keys are available on eBay for around $10

xoxoxoBruce got it right (score one for him). I need the whole thing. Hesitating to buy a new one, but if we get desperate enough, we will. Got one of those wives that wants it done "right" and it's her ride. I only get visitation.

Well, it's in the shop now getting the headliner done with the edging. We decided to add insulation and keep the original look. Excited about having that done. Get it back tomorrow. Changing the subject, but I saw the post for the Twisted Sisters shindig in September. Been doing that for years on the Harley. Doing it in the Jukebox would be a nice change and VERY weird. Roll into the Bent Rim and show'em some real fun rides!
