Did you call around to any interior shops? Down here in S.E. MA the going price seems to be $300 installed or less if you drop down the old one your self and bring it in to them.

You can do the job yourself for about $50 in materials. There's an excellent article in the Tech section about it, which I used when replacing my headliner last summer.

If your headliner board is warped, try a Jeep boneyard like JW Jeeps. But the material itself is available at fabric stores, and the spray adhesive is available at any hardware store.

I found a place that will do it for $65 if you take it down and clean the backing. Thats not a bad price, im sure you could find someone to do it for less than $300.

[b]know of anyplace that sells headliners...
Joe,
I found a guy in San Diego last year that sells a headliner DIY covering kit but the price was about $100. I found a shop in the Chicago area that, given that I took both pieces out and reinstalled the finished pieces, did my headliners and recovered the sun visors for $150 total.

I too followed the the advise in the Tech Section.

In fact, I ordered my foam backed cloth from American Upholstery Supply today. I sent them a piece of my existing cloth and they sent me back three swatchs of different colors for my consideration.

Thier web site is:

Good Luck!
