I order 3 yards for the headliner (foamed) and 3 yards for the pillars, rear shelf and sunshade (no foam) I believe i have 1 yard of the foam backed and 1.5 of the other left over. It was nice to know I had plenty of material, but if ordering again I would go 2 foamed and 1 unfoamed.

Thatís a great idea, I didnít even think about that. O well itís back together now. A friend leant me his upholstery machine, it worked well. Not perfect but pretty darn good. I pre treated the coffee stains with an 80% vinegar to water solution and scrubbed it a bit before taking the cleaner to it.

I think I saw you on Hwy 98 in W-F one evening a few weeks ago. I was in a Hellrot M3 E36 and you were heading West and took a right. I passed you and honked...

I need to get your thoughts on my headliner. Could I stop by and chat?

When overhauling the fabric in the car there is always a debate about which material and glue to use. So I will ask the question of where you sourced the material and which glue you used for the project. Enjoying the progress of your rebuild.

Fabric came from yourautotrimstore.com and I purchased 2 bottles of the spray adhesive they offer (can is identical to the 3M90 can other than the label) I should have ordered 4, I had to run out Sunday morning for a couple cans of 3M90 to finish the A pillars the shelf and the shade panel

And thanks itís been a lot of fun.
