Hi Guys,

As I continue to work on my BII, I've decided to go ahead and replace my headliner.

I pulled it down this weekend, and removed the nasty ass old material. My granddad thought it was a great idea to use a staple gun to hold it all up at one time..... I'll work through that with the repair.

Anyhow I am going to repair the foam backing board as it was already cracked before I took it down. I plan on using resin and fiberglass mat to repair it.

My question is about the foam padding that was above the head liner. It looked like carpet padding almost.

I tossed it in the trash... It looked pretty nasty.

What can I replace this with? I was thinking some sort of peel and stick closed cell foam? Any suggestions?

I'll have to snap some pics tonight, but I have been working on this the past couple of evenings.

I have taken masking tape and fiberglass resin t repair the cracked and broken pieces. I plan on using fiberglass cloth on the area that cracked from the back side so they will stay together.

I can't decide if I want to recover it, or pay someone to do it.

I need my XLT door panels recovered as well, they are in good shape, just sun faded from 35 years of southern sunshine....
