Replacing or recovering? If replacing, going with a newer LR or LaSalle or other...? Are you planning on adding more sound proofing while you're at it?

Hi guys...about to do the same...repairing one....my leaning is to go with a color that can get dirty, wet, and not show said dirt/water/etc.....it will get wet and dirty...as it will go fishing, camping, etc. Not rock stuff like some of you, but it will see some relaxed mud/dirt road stuff....

Almost leaning toward black...anyone have ideas.


Thanks!


Jeff

I'll have to dig up a picture, by I peeled all the crap off mine, took it down to the fiber board, Painted it with Polyester Resin, then sprayed it light grey and gave it a light coating with a Krylon Stone Look/Texture Paint (Sort of a spatter of white/grey/blk. Looks pretty original and can be wiped/washed off with no problem. I also installed rid nuts in all the attachment locations and installed it with large head stainless screws. It looks great and is super durable and dirt friendly.

What i did to my lining is that, I have pull out the old plastic finish and i apply some fiberglass liquid to the fabric and let it dry. So now the fabric is rigid and i did used 3M spray glue and stick the new fabric to it, look very good, and i did go with light gray to keep light as bright as possible inside the truck as the trim are all black

Dark green next to grey trim and seats is not my first choice, but I'm not trying to create a SEMA show-winner, just decent quality and functional.

Alcantara is durable and is sound attenuating. Charcoal grey of even light grey would have been better, but ordering from the supplier was $$$$, so the green was surplus offered on eBay for 1/10 the price. Since I wasn't sure how my upholstery skillset had held up since working in a shop in high school, I figured I'd get the sale fabric in case I F-ed it all up.

I did one more step that was an experiment. I had some thin 1/8" closed cell packing foam material in a 36" roll. As you can see in the previous photo, I applied this closed cell foam to the flat part of the headliner. Only to the flat part because it would look all bulky if you tried to work it around the corners and outside edges. It's only perceptable when you touch it because it feels padded. Again, more sound attenuation. It also acts as a moisture barrier between the fabric and the very porous headliner backing. The contact adhesive adhered a lot more consistently to the closed cell foam, as it has a tendency to really get soaked up by the recycled material used in the headliner structure. You have to apply the adhesive liberally to the backing structure, but by doing so the headliner fabric can be blotchy as the adhesive bleeds through. The foam acts a a medium and a more consistent surface to adhere to.

I have no idea where I got the 1/8" foam. It was just in my attic as one of the many things my cheap-yankee hoarding pack-rat-ass self stores all the time.

As this headliner redo project is next on the list, what insulation between the headliner and roof is a good choice?

Dynamat, but it doesn't cut down on the noise as much as you'd think. It helps, but most of the road noise is through the floor, bulkhead and transmission tunnel.


amazon.com - the "extreme" pack will do the entire roof with some leftover.

Acoustical insulation (sound absorption or vibration mitigation)? Heat insulation? Different products for different purposes.

That is a good point, as we drive aluminum heat sinks, I guess both sound (Dynamat) and some Heat Insulation is a must. What is used after the Dynamat for Heat Insulation? Closed Foam?
As I have never pulled the headliner, I don't have a idea on how much clearance there is.

Dynamat as a firm offers a variety of different products for different purposes (as do other companies). Dynamt Extreme as a vibration dampening mat. Dynaliner for acoustical absorption etc. Pick the right tool(s) for the job...it's not just a case of slathering the interior with 'Dynamat'.

On my 83 110, with external ribs, there is ~.75-1" of clearance between my Lasalle Headliner and the roof.

Sorry, I meant Dynaliner, but I used Dynaliner under the hood.

Although Dynaliner will work (clearance-wise) under the headliner, I used Dynamat because I was locating speakers up there. In fact, the manufacturer suggests putting Dynamat first, then Dynaliner for better adhesion (probably to sell more product too).

sorry for the confusion.
