Post Shaggy headliner

So I've seen the shaggy fur interiors of some cars. I've mostly seen it in the back window, or the whole interior in some of ed roth's show cars. I was wondering if this material would be alright to use as a headliner? I'm talking about the long, white, shaggy stuff. Also, does anyone know where I could get some?
Thank you very much!
-Levi

its light and thin backed, it would work on a board with some padding, it was a big thing back in the '60's and '70's we used to put them in lowriders and vans. Check your local fabric shop for cloths, i did a leopard intirior like that for this cool chick that used to live in town on a '64 ford

Roth put it in the Mysterion but that was reportedly real fur. Who knows? He 'lost' that car a year after it was finished.

unless your headliner is a glue up late model you will have a real hard time making an early type headliner out of this. We did three cars back in the late sixties early seventys, the material is hard to sew and stretches the wrong way so you have a lot of waste, after the third one it was no- no way-no how- at the time they looked great, one even won some interior awards, but not practical, hard to maintain not u-v resistant, and now with fed regulations not fire safe.

I'm fixin up an old boogy van with a friend and he was suggesting putting that longhair fuzz on the ceiling, said you can still get it at fabric stores and it's correct name is "Fun-Fur". We decided on carpet instead.

I had that stuff in my 53' back in the early 60's. The floor the door panels, seat covers (Mom could sew), package tray,(this was the best place for fur).Kept the white "hide" headliner. It was to "tuff" to get that stuff to hang right.
It looked great until the hose to the heater broke and turned everything a nice shade of rust. I went back to hides. It was easier and alot more durable. I'm not a big fan of redoing the interior of few months. My suggestion look elsewhere. If you think that fake fur is a chick magnet, now that's conversation food for another day. Have a good one...........t

Cool

I have been looking everywhere for that fun fur stuff. It seems it is hard to come by , but after 3 months of hard searching and a large phone bill I have found a place that carrries it. www.fabfurs.com they have black and white shaggy fur. I am using it to do the interior of my 1970 chevy truck long bed step side. I know with all my searching i was finally happy but I am going to keep on until I have alot of resources for this shaggy fun fur. I am still looking for RED, if anyone might know where to find it.

Yeah, my parents guest room. Curtains, bed covers, pillows. Still makes me cringe every time I see it!

Any fabric store will have this stuff.
