headliner flames?

Hey guys, im new here, and this is my first post! Anyways lets get to the point. I was watching a show on spike TV, and they did a head liner with flames, they used spray adhesive and cut the flames out of 1/4 foam and then just put fabric over it. If anyone has had any exprence with it please lemme know. I wanna try it in my explorer! Im trying to give the interior a make over! Thanks guys

What kind of car and is the headliner in good shape? More so is the substrait in good shape. If it is a molded head liner. Pull it down carefully, dont bent it anymore than you have to, if you crease the board it will never go back up the same. pull the fabric off of it. get a file card and a wire brush. use the brushes and cards to get all the old foam of the board. get some high density 14 foam and an exacto blade and cut out the flame shapes that you want. Get come contact cement and and apply the flames to the board. Now where in Michigan are you from. I may be able to help you with a supplier of materials.

What kind of car? You can get black headliner material pretty easily and it is fairly cheap. You should be able to look in you yellow pages and get materials up there. If not there is a place down here for headliner material from detroit body products, Wixom, dont have the number here but if you need it let me know. The stuff stretches like mad and you can cover most any shape you want. You want to buy about 3 cans of 3m super top and trim adhesive. dont use 76 because humidity will have the stuff dropping in a year. To push the material on around the flames making it a tigh fit we use a plastic dowl rounded like a finger on one side and like a chisel on the other. But a plastic spoon has worked in a pinch. Just make sure it doesnt have any rough edges. The material will scratch when you install it if there are any rough edges.

Remember

Hey man. When you are cutting out the flames make sure to cut the shape of the foam out at a 45 degree angle, that way when you put the material over top you will have a nicer pattern and it wont look like ****, remember when you are putting it down to go from lowest spot to the highest spot. Also check for cracks in the healdiner, I am sure the show you watched told you how to fixe them. I am from Ravenna michigan, it is by Muskegon.
