    I am going to clean the Headliner of the 60 and was wondering
    what cleaner does the best job. Please post your thoughts and
    what products you have used to clean it. It has light soil so there
    is no really bad spots to speak of other then the normal soil by
    the doors from hand oil. thx

    I've read about people using TuffStuff. But I can't remember whether it was on 60's or 62's....

    By that i assume you mean because one liner is vinyl and one
    is cloth? Just what is Tuff Stuff?

    if its the vinyl headliner, use Westlys Bleach White, its old school white wall tire cleaner and is awsome stuff. If its cloth, I would take a good shop vac to it 1st and see if that doesn't do it(but don't use the Bleach White on cloth)

    My 62 has the felt type headliner that is prevalent in most vehicles today. Username?'s 60 has a vinyl type headliner that has perferations in it... I am not sure if these two examples are indiciative of all 60's and 62's.


    From a description on the interwebbie...

    From reading the description, it may work on both.

    I've had 2 cans sitting in my garage for well over a year now with every intention of trying it on my carpet.

    TuffStuff is goodstuff on cloth materials. Comes in a spray can and can be found at most auto parts stores.

    Thanks, My Headliner is vinyl but i dont think it has perforations in it
    rather just little dimples. I just want to give it a good cleaning as i am
    sure the previous owners never did and its starting to look a little ratty

    Bleach White is the best tire stuff ever. I'd have never thought of using it on vinyl interiors.

    His might just be dimpled too, i didn't pay *that* close of attention to it other than to note that I liked it better than mine.;)

    Are the instructions on the Westleys bottle ok to follow for cleaning
    the Headiner or is there a better way to apply it and clean with
    it?
