Remove the entire headliner from the car, remove the healiner cloth from the actual headliner its self. The headliner is actually just a shaped board. After that scrape off the old glue so the cloth can actually adhere to board, not the glue on the board.Then pick some fabric to use, I'd go with something relatively thin, its lighter and more flexible. Cut out the cloth in the shape of the board, then use the 3m heavy duty glue to glue it to the board. I usually spray both the cloth and the board with the glue to get a better hold, but follow the instructions on the can. The whole job can be done in a day easily. I suggest practicing on a couple before diving right in just to make sure you can get the curves right. I'm doing the one on my 750 soon, I can post up a guide with pictures when I do if you'd like.
