Looks great. MTF stuff is a little on the pricey side, but from everything I've seen of their products, it does appear to be one of those occasions when you really do get what you pay for. When I'm ready to install my interior, I will be placing an order with them. I'm saving up my $$ now.

In the end, I finally located some deeper windlass and was able to cover most of the shortages. The worst part was where my attempts to install the original windlass pulled the material away from the backing. The new windlass pushed up the material and created a puffy spot. Eventually I will have to remove the windlass again, glue the material back to the backing and re-install the windlass. Had I known about the MTF headliner, I would have considered it. I have included a shot of the poorly made headliner installed in my car.

If I can provide any additional info, please let me know.

I would send that pic to TMI and ask for a refund.

I didnt and still dont want to turn this into a MTF vs TMI, i just wanted to give a review of the product from MTF. I will tell you I have TMI upholstery and seat foam on my 89 mustang seats. When i installed it, the material wasnt cut correctly and wouldnt hog ring into the frame, I called Wayne over at TMI and they sent me a shipping label for both top halfs of the seats to send to them. They reupholstered both and sent it back. I was floored by the customer service.

As far as the MTF, it was a little pricey, but it changes the entire look and its a great product.

finally got around to getting a pic of the headliner installed. Glued headliner material to the MTF piece and added the dome light. This is a nice piece, and other than some very minor trimming and a heat gun to get a good close fit, very very happy.

Excellent upgrade and the first one I've seen that I could stand. The heavy plastic/grained look of the part out of the box is a terrible turn-off to my eye, but the addition of the headliner material is far and away a much nicer look! Well done!

Did you just use interior paint? Or vinyl dye?

Thanks.

So I'm a little confused by what others have said, so hoping you can clarify something for me. Did you install the MTF piece with the windows already installed? If yes, how did secure it in place?

Thanks, Clint
