Default What did I get myself into?

Hey guys. Well i got in the mood to fix up my truck a little and the next thing on the list was the headliner. So me and my dad start to work on it and from the start it has been a pain. First you pretty much have to take just about every panel inside the truck either loose or completely off. Also the little plastic plugs that hold most of the panels on got hard and brittle so every one of em broke. Finally the headliner is out and Im peeling whats left of the material off and scraping the foam off which is huge pain in the ass. So now Im about half way through the foam scraping and I am considering buying a whole new headliner. So if any of y'all know the cheapest place it would be greatly appreciated. And sorry for being so long I kinda got carried away.

I've heard that removing the Ranger headliner is a summapup. It's something I hope I never have to do.

FYI: yards dont inventory most interior parts...including headliner.


From what I hear, from ford its actually not that bad of a price. But a truck of that vintige, likely won't be available from the dealer. Try out LMCtruck.com too.

I would not get a used one it will be in teh same shape yours was in and then has to be taken out. it is not too much cash to have a interior shop put one in for you, on ebay they are $240 for a new one, you can also look at auto supply places, one that have bumper and fenders and such, not autozone or repair places

Do you need just the fabric? or the cardboard piece too?
I redid my headliner and it took only a few hours.
I peeled most of the foam off, then sprayed adhesive and recovered with a universal headliner kit from www.jcwhitney.com

As said before- the push pin deals can be bought at an auto part store, or lowes.

$200 and $300 dollars for a headliner. Guess what I payed for my black swade headliner.
A lot of money... not $4.73 at the local joan fabrics (craft store)

I was going to suggest that.

Some kind of fabric or even carpeting.

Well thanks for all your suggestions guys i sucked it up and kept on going and got the foam off. Then for about 20 bucks at Jo-Ann's including coupons i got the spray glue and material(camo). And I am very happy with the results. I will post pics soon.

I just stripped my cardboard of the foam on my old one.

Then, went to a fabric store and bought some actual headliner material. Got some spray adhesive, sprayed it very very good, and laid the material down.

My wife then cut the material to fit and folded it over where it needed to be, and it looks better than it did new.

It wasn't that hard to get out, but I had all my interior parts out anyway.
