    I thought he used pop rivets. Where oh where are those archives?

    You are the National Geographic of the DeLorean world, Rich.

    Do you have fiberboard or fiberboard (OEM) headliners? I would use an epoxy resin glue on either. I use West Marine products myself. You might also considering using the epoxy resin to strengthen any weakened/damaged areas if you have the fiberboard pieces.

    You are going to kill your resale value.

    I helped a friend do his "one-piece headliner" a few years ago. We used a combination of glue and pop rivets to attach both pieces together.

    I liked the look and results of 5052's single piece headliner so much I did the same mod to 4194. On 5052 I backed the rivets with a strip of thin metal. On 4194 I used washers that were the same diameter as the rivets. without something to back the rivets, they have a tendency to pull through the fiber board. Both the strip of metal and the washers worked, but the washers were the easier option.

    Any issues with the rivets/washers/whatever showing through the material?

    This weekend I'm going to assess my door headliner boards and decide if I should recover them or buy fiberglass replacements. The roof part looks good, and I'm going to make a one-piece headliner.

    Where do I get the light gray headliner fabric? There's a Joann's where I live, but the grey is too dark.

    I want the lighter shade as shown in this pic of my first car:
