Replacing sagging Headliners in Defenders - material and success?

Searched on Headliners and got some info on LaSalle one piece headliners, but nothing about the success (or not) regarding removing the old "shells" and glueing new headliner material and installs. Has anyone done this in a 110 and had success? COSteve

I had a local upholstery shop redo mine. They look great and I haven't had any problems.
I don't like the La Salle. It is plastic and once installed it doesn't look finished.

Any special trick or advice for removal? Mine sags in all 3 sections and I am worried that I would do more damage removing the headliner.

Thanks,
Matt

Not sure. The upholstery shop removed mine. I remember they had to unbolt the interior roll bar to remove the headliner.

Its sounds simple enough......
Purchase headliner (color?) and glue from a company like http://www.headlinerkit.com/
Anyone have a better vendor?
Purchase new "plastic push in attachments" from Rovers North or the dealer
The 110 is in three sections, so the removal of the interior Roll Cage is a good tip, had not thought of that.
Buy enought material to also cover the Sun Visors?
Remove, clean old materail from the shells, glue new material on, reinstall.
Did I miss anything? COSteve

I don't think it is as simple as just regluing. Mine has stitching in a couple corners where you could see a fold in the fabric.

I've got a D90 SW ... so it's about the same thing...

Got a question about MATERIAL...

What kind of material is the liners that you guys are installing ?

I've been thinking of redoing mine, but don't know exactly what to put up there.

I'd like Alligator skin but that might get pricy and I don't know how it will hold up. anyone come up with any crazy ideas like that or install something 'different' ??

Thank you Fella's...

Red face Material and Labor from the House of Trim

So I found a local and highly regarded trim shop that looked at the job and quoted me 300.00 for the foam backed fabric (more like a car interior) and a similar to stock vinyl grey that has to be attached to foam for 400.00. I take the roll bar out (that going to be a different thread :0) and I have already purchased all the new push pins to complete the install.
The owner said that reason they fall is heat seperation, so I am thinking of putting a layer of the reflectix mylar silver bubble sheeting on the top before the install.
I think am am going with a pro on this project.

I have the vinyl grey on mine. It is very close to the sun visors. You can't tell them apart.
Seteve. Where did you get the push pins? Do you have a part number?
