    anyone made their own headliner? what materials work best?
    thinking of using kangaroo leather, once i get everything else fixed on it and painted, and lifted, etc. figure going to keep it forever so might as well make it nice

    I put rhinolining on. It looks uniform, won't sag, chip and you can hose it off.

    You need to hose off your headliner?

    I don't know if that's a good thing or not. :D
