Headliner from Mustangs to Fear

Has anyone used their one piece headliners? If so what are your thoughts pro and con?

I personally haven't, but I've certainly heard good things.

I have one. Quality and fit is great, some minor trimming as expected. Well worth the price.

What he said!! Great quality and easy to install. Give's you more head room. Do a search on here. You will see great reviews and installs.
Also, if you get it. Don't forget to install some Noico or your choice of heat barrier.

It has been posted here several times that the TMI molded headliner is junk and the MTF product is excellent.

I used it- I like it- more headroom- no upholstery shop needed to install. Can do with windows in. THey ship quik and there is a video on you tube to watch



Its a little "shiney"- but overall looks good (not sure if the shineyness will resist dye attempts- maybe light scotchbrite would help or adhesion promoter)

I found the drilling a little tough to get right- but I was successful. All of the headliner requires grinding to fit (but these were all mentioned on the website so its not like I didn't know before purchase. I would purchase again.

Oh FYI- I also purchased the sunvisors- (at first I didn't but after looking at the OEM style - it looks funny up against the headliner- so if you want them to match you may need to get those too.

Sure. Everyone seems to have a different preference. But, these guys make good stuff at a decent price. You just stick it to the roof before installing the headliner. Just make sure you clean the old headliner material off pretty good so it adhere's properly.

I dyed mine blue, using SEM products. Used a scotchbrite pad to sand it first. Also used adhesion promoter. It's been four or five years and it has held up with no issues.
I'm glad so many people have had good results with their one piece MTF headliner, I didn't.
My fastback headliner with console didn't fit well from the get go, the holes for the passenger side sun visor was off by at least 3/4 of an inch, and the passenger side just didn't fit right above the window. It took me a good ten hours of work, with a heat gun to get it to an acceptable level. And I had to patch where the sun visor hole was. When I called for some tech support, Rich said the car must have been hit and tweaked the roof. When I told him that I had the car since 67, and it was never wrecked, his comment was, "well we don't cut the hole for the sun visors anymore" Well a lot of good that did me, I'm stuck with one you did cut!

How do you like the headliner with console?
I am torn on which one to get because my year Mustang didnít have an upper console option, but the fastback is dark inside at night with no dome light..

Do you have any pictures?

69 Mustang Fastback... in pieces since 2009.

Here are a couple, not the greatest, but you can see the front part. If you notice, the stainless steel insert does not fit that well in the front. Also, the dome light switches are kinda cheap, not like the originals.
