Replacement cloth headliners

I'm looking to replace the old faded, and torn headliner in my 1954 dodge coronet. I've seen them at kanter.com and a few other online locations, but I am just looking to see if anyone can recommend anywhere, or has experience with any companies.

Look in J C Whitney...I* have had excellent luck with their headliners...you gotta put it in your self but the hardest one is the first one after that its a no brainer. Their vendor is Aristocrat and I make some contact with them after I gor the item from Whitney they were also as helpful as they could be.

Yes, I agree with Wally. I have bought many headliners from JC Whitney. They are high quality, good stuff. They also have patterns for the really oddball stuff I have done. 29 Studebaker, 36 Terraplane, and a Huppmobile!.

I'm not seeing any custom fit ones for mine on their website, although I don't think they have half what is available on their website, as the only custom fit one they list is for volkswagon bugs.

I'm a bit hesitent to buy there, as my only experience with them comes from a tool I bought that self destructed before accomplishing it's mission, but that's why it cost 1/4 what the right tool did.

Your old headliner can be used as a pattern to make a new liner out of any type material you decide would look good. If you don't have a sew machine any upholstery shop can sew it up. Have done a few myself this way. Finally bought a sew machine.
