The camo pattern was laid out in Photoshop prior to shooting paint.  I have not washed the truck (nor had to) since painting it.

Hello Guys, new here.

I recently started accesorizing my Jeep Cherokee with camo accents. I had a nice set of camo seat covers made, have a few other interior items also.

I bought some material on ebay thinking i'd use it for redoing my headliner. Looking closely i think it may be too thin a material and will allow glue to bleed through if i dont apply it at just the right time.

Anyone aware of a company that sells headliner material in a Mossy Oak,Hardwoods etc type of pattern?

Here's a link to the covers i had made through www.seatcovers.net (i'm not affiliated) to give you an idea of the pattern i'd like to closely match.

Plan is to eventually paint the Jeep a flat OD and use an Mossy Oak type of accent along the lower 6" or so of the body. I think it'll look good when done.

Thanks,
John

I bought some camo cloth from a local store. It was not very thick, but it was a solid cotton cloth. I used some 3M General Trim Adhesive spray to glue the cloth to the headliner. It has held up for over a year.

With this adhesive, you spray the liner and the cloth. Let them set for a minute, then press them together. You must make sure that there are no wrinkles as you make contact. You have one shot to get it right.

Here is a photo of the liner in my truck:

That looks great! Exclamation

I have done a few headliners, my concern is "pressing" it as you state with the glue not tacky or dry enough that in turn will allow glue to bleed through. Like you said...one shot.

Just took the fabric out of it's package, i'll give it a shot. I'm only out about $15 if it doesnt work. It's Realtree Hardwoods pattern which matches my seats pretty well.

Thanks Rollins.

I dont think i need vinyl, and i'm concerned about the weight of the fabric vs adhesion. Not to mention it's expensive.

the search continues for the right fabric. Laughing

Finally got around to installing the headliner. I'm happy with how it turned out. Jeep will be getting an OD paint job next.






And the seatcovers i had done by www.seatcovers.net, after several attempts at a good fit i ended up buying and shipping a seat for them to use for their template.

i bought the mossy oak fabric from walmart. i also bought a cam of super 77 spray adhesive. took the headliner in my s10 out and vacuumed it well and then cut the fabric to go 5" over the edge of the headliner. then you spray both the headliner and the fabric with the super 77 and apply it but then use a cd case or something to take out the wrinkles. then when that dries flip it over and cut a slit in the corners and use the super 77 and fold them over. that works really well. because the fabric is not too thin[/u]
