85 pup headliner removal

Postby pup daddy » Wed Dec 14, 2011 7:15 am

Thanks to a hail storm several months back the roof of my pup got dimpled. :( The dent removal people say they can get them out, but I am hesitant because I have the original vinyl with the metal wire type headliner and it still is in very good shape. I don't want it to be ruined trying to take it out, or untucking the side. anyone have any experience here? My fallback option is to just bondo the dings and repaint the roof.

So, they're telling you they need the headliner removed?

no, but they will have to untuck the headliner vinyl from around the doors for access. I just don't want to do this if it cannot be put back into place.

that shouldn't be a problem on the sides. The main problem will be the front and rear as the headliner is tucked and stretched into the window rubbers. The sides are held into the upper rubber/pastic molding trim around the door and really shouldnt be hard to put back.
