    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

    You need to hose off your headliner?

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