Yeah Canadian winters are really rough on the cars. I will be changing everything that is the tan/beige in color. Haven't decided yet whether I will recover or spray dye the headliner yet.

Yes a car detail would be nice but I am driving through the winter.

Well if you go to a gray color or a shade of gray on the headliner then that would look like a completely new interior. Would go better with all the dash and door panel colors as well.

Well, The plan is to grey (Duplicolour Charcoal) the whole interior to darken it out. I just some pieces to see how I would like it and so far it looks great. Just need to wait for a nice weekend to complete the rest.

nice to know :).

I guess dying the headliner is an option but it is a risk of ruining it if the color doesn't come out right.

I no someone who did his entire headliner in carbon fiber... it looked really good... it was in an S-10.... if i had the patients i wouuld try it.

Anyplace that puts in moonroofs should be able to put in a different color headliner. When I had mine done on my old dodge I changed the headliner from a light gray to black and it looked awesome, and indeed change the look of the interior....

So an update.... all I have left to dye are the visors, holy shit handle and map light console.
Oh by the way the headliner does come out of the koup....go out the passenger door with the car in gear...it just fits to come out...definitely a two person job.

Pics will follow when completed tomorrow.

Well We took head liner out of the car...a trick in itself...Used Dupli-colour Vinyl & Fabric spray dye...So yes...To complete the interior it took 3 cans of paint. Now keep in mind this spray dye will make the headliner a little rougher but I didn't care..LOL
