    Headliners and moulded carpet

    Post  GM B-Body Forum on Sun Jan 19, 2014 8:28 pm

    65-96 Carpet and Headliners and a few other odds and ends from StockInteriors.com I purchased the do it your self headliner kit when i redone my headliner last year in my 79 caprice. The earlier models with the bow style headliners already have kits made for them. I see they also have molded carpet. I dont know the quality on them, but the headliner fabric is good. I have the oyster colored interior, and the closest color to the original headliner is #M1807 Oxford White. You can order samples before you buy. Check them out. I know by now almost all of your headliners are sagging, its a cheap, fairly easy do it yourself project, and looks so much better than the old sad droopy headliner.

    I used them when I re-did the headliner in my Toronado. That was probably 6 years ago and it's still holding strong.

    You might check your local shops though. You may be surprised how cheap they'll do it. I think I spent $60 to do it all myself, and the upholstery shop said they usually charge $100. I would have paid the extra $40. Haha.

    my local shop wanted a little over 300, but that was including the sun visors. So thats why i did it my self, it wasnt bad at all and i could afford to save 250 bucks lol
