Looks good! Did you have a factory deadener above the front seat? If so did the Fat Mat stick to well?. Thanks HO455.

My has that too but it seems oily or greasy to the touch. I'm worried about not being able to get anything to stay in place against the unrelenting pull of gravity. Which seems to fight me harder everyday.

Re: Home made burb headliner

Like everything on your Burban, it looks great. Did you have a pattern or did you use Port Headlights drawing?

Thanks! I used Portheadlights drawings and he was kind enough to send me the patterns. Just keep in mind every one of these trucks are different and you may have to make adjustments to the patterns and measurements.

Re: Home made burb headliner

Did you mock it up with poster board or something else? Or did you just dive in with the FRP(?) material?

It takes some time, but is not to bad of a job. Really finishes off the inside of the burb.

I assume you are talking about the metal bows. It's a very tight fit, but if you cut the panels correctly you can make it happen. I think the key is letting the FRP material "relax" to fit the curve of the roof. A heat gun will hurry up this process, just be careful and don't melt the material.....

Re: Home made burb headliner

UPDATE: I have all my panels cut and installed. The fit is good and the satin white is similar to the factory original. I have been trying to find some nice plastic headliner bows, but that is starting to seem like an impossible task. So I got in contact with a company about manufacturing some new ones. I sent them a couple of pieces to use as samples. I think this will probably happen. They won't be chrome like the originals, but they will be paintable. In the meantime, I took the 3 nicest bows that I have and color matched them to the headliner material. This will have to do for right now.
