    Looked at Chevy Duty, LMC, and Classic Industries. Looks like LMC doesn't have white. Chevy Duty, now Classic Parts, doesn't show a picture of the product and Classic Industries looks pretty good. Anybody replace their headliner with an aftermarket? This is on a 76 Blazer...

    I peeled off the white vinyl and sprayed some 3M spray glue on it and put it back on. It is drying now and we will see how it looks. It didn't lay perfectly flat though since the parts that sagged stretched a bit.

    Was it generic or specific to your truck?

    It's generic, plenty of material. Just remove headliner from truck, remove the old material and clean all old glue and spongy stuff off, spray new glue on and place new headliner on and smooth out. That easy

    The headliner kit is made by:

    Heads Up industries
    A Division of ACCS Enterprises
    539 Sawgrass Corporate Parkway
    Sunrise, FL 33325

    That is what I did with my old one. It looks like it came out decent. But, the vinyl is still a little dirty so I may have to consider that route. I'd prefer one that is a direct install though.

    I spoke too soon. I went to install it and the vinyl just started peeling and falling off the cardboard. Back to square one. I'd like to get a new replacement.

    I went through this when I built my 81 K10 about 7 years ago. I looked at all the aftermarket stuff, all junk IMO. I went with the GM cloth version from the dealer. Expensive yes, but a very nice piece, well crafted and fit PERFECTLY.
