I'd call that fiberboard

What'* so funny about that?

Andrew - I guess everyone has a different definition of "fiber board". If you knew the process you wouldn't oversimplify it.

I hear its so easy even a caveman could do it.
Sorry, I had to go there. Please don't ban me.

It actually sounds like a detailed process. I always figured it was just a big ol piece of cardboard.

Brian...

Get a couple cans of the 3M90....

Also when you get the Headliner fabric you need/want get it in 1/4 inch thickness...

Getting the head liner out will be a bit tricky on your A Body... You will have to bend and flex it without breaking it... You will need to remove the Trim from the A, B and C pillars.... Not sure about the A Body attaching points tho..

When you install the material to the board be sure to overlap the board a bit... Take your time and you will have done a great Job

Do I have to use headliner material. What is the significance of the thickness? I was just gonna find some material at a local fabric store.

thickness hides imperfections, you will have a lot of them

the stock fabric is 1/4" foam backed, replace it with the same stuff.

your fabric store will have a "headliner" section, with like 5-10 different colors probably. I believe its like $7/yard
