This is my wife's headliner out of her Escort. I am not going to go through a length discription of how I did this. I'm just going to post the pictures. If anyone has any questions feel free to ask.

Its just 1/4" foam left over from when I did the simulated convertable top on the car.

did you have to thin the contact cement to spray in the gun ? if so what did you use??
i'd tried lacquer thinner one time, just wondered if you'd used something else to thin it.

Wow your either real good or have balls. I wouldnt spray the entire piece of fabric and do it in one shot like that. Good work though I like it. Any pics of the top you did?

how did you cut the foam so straight? and the curves?
just drew it on there and cut it out with a good sharp pair of scissors.
