Any chance you know the answer to my "truck vs Suburban" question with regards to the size/shape being close or not? Yes, it helps...and thanks again.

If you don't get an answer on this by Tuesday I can dig out one of the front sections I have and take it over to my buddies and see how it fits in his truck.

Or if its partially glued to the roof you could make some spacers?

Show pics if you do it.
Thanks CG..."So you say there's a chance" (Dumb & Dumber reference) Interesting about the height differences in the roof skins...I'm wondering if the pre-drilled holes for the sun-visors will line-up???...then maybe the trim set they sell would hold it in place and some kind of filler piece would have to made if the trim doesn't go back far enough to reach the bow at the beginning of the second panel??? At a total of $350 for both, I'm not sure I want to take a chance...but maybe!?!

Re: Home made burb headliner

I did a google search of the board using "headliner" as the search category. Here are some pics. Quite a few in there of this molded headliner with the speakers. Maybe that would help you determine if they could possibly work in a burb.

Holy cow, CG...that's a lot of pic's...thanks a lot! My biggest concern is whether or not the pre-drilled holes for the visors line-up...if so, there must be a way to pull it all together. Those shots of the speaker-headliner look great which makes me want to do it even more, so I'm hoping HO455 has some good news for me if he is able to take his pattern to check it on his friends truck! Thanks again for the link.

Re: Home made burb headliner

Been away and catching up. The answer about truck versus burb front headliner is a solid "I don't have a clue." Any truck owners nearby that you could actually see and measure up? Just an idea. Good luck. Glad the dimensions helped. Another tip: be careful if use heat gun.... plastic bows can melt and get mis-shaped. OOPS.

Thanks for the response, PortHeadlight. So far, that's the consensus...however, I think HO455 might be able to clear it up by doing exactly what you suggested. 100% agree on the heat gun tip...they seem to be too hot for me to handle, so I'll go slow and only use my wife's hairdryer! (just don't tell her)

Re: Home made burb headliner

I hope your not in too much of a hurry . I called my buddy and he is in California and won't be back for a week or so depending on his dad's health.

Gosh no, HO455...I've got too many projects going right now to actually tear into the headliner. At your leisure, sir...and thanks! Hope your friend's dad is alright, too.
