Default Headliner

I recently bought a fixer upper 71 deville and the vinyl headliner is ripped and torn in several places i guess i just dont know how to go about fixing that. I couldnt find a replecement online anywhere and even if i had it how would i install it? I know there were people that would come to your house and fix these vinyl headliners back in there hay day but i dont know if there stil around.

Headliner can be made at home if you know someone with a sewing machine and knows what they're doing. Just use the old headliner as a pattern. Car should have a "bow type" head liner you do need to find a Fisher body manual for 1976 ( they are all the pretty much the same) or earlier if you try to do it yourself. Most upholstery shops should be able to handle it.

the local shop charged me $120 to do a headliner on a car with a sun roof, including the visors.
for that kind of cash, I'm not willing to spend weekends learning and trying - plus chasing supplies.
