Default ...headliner question

Hey guys, so my headliner let go in the recent heatwave, and it REALLY let go. Within a few days, it went from no sag at all to totally drooping to the point where it touches my head every time I sit in the car.

I see a bunch of DIYs around about redoing one's headliner. Anyone have some recent experience and/or tips to share? Ideally, I'd like to reuse the original fabric. Thoughts? My car is slick top if that makes a difference. The fabric itself is not ripped or anything from what I can tell.

Weighing my options, I need to either do this myself or bring it somewhere ASAP... Driving me nuts...

BM134 from www.veteranco.com. Everyone claims it is OE, but I haven’t ordered yet myself.

Don’t bother trying to reuse yours. It is good to reuse on pillars and such though.

Cool, thanks. Is that BM1394 though? I don't see BM134 on their site but to be fair, it looks like they don't update their site, ummmm ever.

You need to call them for orders. Their site is archaic. As I said, I've never ordered any myself, so it would be beneficial to contact them yourself.

It's BM134.

I sent them an email a month or two back and they sent me a bunch of samples, they were actually sold out of "BM134" when I contacted them - they told me to reach out at the end of August / early Sep to check and see if it was back in stock. Its on my to-do list as I need to put a headliner in my M3 as well. Will check the samples and give them a call this week.

I've done this a few years back and my headliner is still holding together. Used hi strength 3M adhesive spray from a green can. Remove old orange foam with a wire brush then remove the old adhesive using acetone and a rag. Spray the headliner board and the fabric in sections and give it a few minutes to tack up before attaching. I redid my headliner, pillars, and rear deck in UV resistant black ultra suede since I didn't really care for finding OEM fabric.
