    I broke down and paid $100.00 to have a pro redo my headliner. I probably would have fuc.. it up.
    I also supplied the material. I purchased it from NPD.
    The installer said the material was very good quality so I can give the NPD material a thumbs up.

    It turned out pretty nice.

    Looks good. I've done a couple but it's easy to screw it up by using too much adhesive or not waiting long enough, after spraying it, to apply material.

    Looks very nice! I plan on taking my original board to an upholstery shop to have new material installed on it too.

    It was the original panel. Luckily it is in good shape

    I had a pro do mine too in my 70 which is more difficult to do.

    Looks good! I also paid an upholstery guy to install mine, car upside down in a rotisserie, in my garage. Mine was a hanger, much more difficult than a board install. I agree with your reasoning!

    I paid to have mine done too. The difference in price between me buying the liner material and glue vs the shop doing it was 45$. I thought that was money well spent...although it did take me 4 hours to clean and prep the board before it took it in.
