DanTwoLakes You never know 'til you ask! You never said what year,model, and brand of car you have. Maybe it doesn't get any windlace. If it does, and you're trying to make it original then you should try to match it, but that only means matching the original fabric. The core is basically the same. If not, Kanter, and a lot of other places, also sell windlace. You can also make windlace up out of the same or coordinating fabric the interior is done in. I sew my own with 1/2" sponge rod and a 5/8" welt foot on my sewing machine, or if you're a glutton for punishment you can glue it together with contact cement. Good luck.

I don't even have windlace right now. Is that a generic kind of stuff that will work on any car, or is it vehicle specific?

Sorry for the newbie type questions. I really don't know jack about interiors - but you gotta start somewhere.

headliner from classic

I bought a headliner from classic about 10 years ago,still looks as good as the day it was installed. the shop that put it on told me that the fabric was twice as heavy as the oem. if you want I nice job, it's worth having a pro do it. good luck ! Dan

Are Classic Industries headliners any good?

ANyone have any experience with installing a headliner "kit" type deal from Classic Industries or Year One or something?

Just curious how difficult it is to install. Could a guy do himself at home with a rather meager amount of interior talent??
