Have been thinking about blacking out to match the door panels and seats.
Wonder how difficult it'd be to have one sewn out of automotive grade vinyl?
I think a grey would look good and not be too dark inside.
I would think any good upholster could sew up a headliner, here's a different looking one. https://forum.ih8mud.com/fj55-iron-pig-preservation-society/193838-ultimate-55-a-2.html
Of course SOR's is very similar:
Let the record show that a light gray would get my money for two pigs: one earl body, one late (not that anyone had indicated that there is a difference with regards to the headliners, early vs. late).
My dog has checked to see if there's a hidden escape hatch behind the headliners, little bastard.
Here's something I read on Jalopy Journal.
Did one for my dad's 36 Chevy PU. We stretched about 3 layers of plastic kitchen wrap (seran wrap) over the entire outside of the roof of the cab and then laid down 2 layers of fiberglass cloth and resin. After id set up over night it was easy to pop off with no damage to the outside at all. You have to be careful of drips and runs and such but just take your time and it will work.
After its off you will have to split it front to back and side to side giving you 4 pcs of headliner. Simply fit each piece to its respective spot inside the cab (the pcs will overlap) mark the seams and trim them to fit together. Remove them all and bond them together on the bench or floor them cover with your choice of headliner material.
It does take some work this way but it makes for a nice headliner.
