looks awesome, what glue did you use, i used a spry glue and after a couple of days it started coming off, so i am in the process of redoing everything

looks amazing.

I think it would be a good winter break project for me...

Can you post details on the color and where you sourced it? That grey looks like it would match my interior as well.

Nice work man, perfect install. I'm gonna borrow my roomates camera again since I found a good pick spot. I'll shoot some pics of the harnesses.

looks great, i never thought about doing gray. did you cover the b-pillars too? i gave up on mine and just dyed them. it looks perfect around the sunroof motor bump. that part gave me some trouble.

Well I'm definitely blacking out my RS4 grill now.

goody6691-Yeah i did cover the b-pillars, wasnt too hard...the material stretched over the pillars nicely. the hardest part were the curves on the headliner itself, but it wasnt too bad. definitely not something i wanna have to do again for a while haha.

yaktizzle-the whole thing set me back about 30ish bucks. 5 bucks/yard for the fabric, and i bought about 6 yards of it. not too bad. i then bought a little extra gray and alot of black for when i do my trunk setup this spring hopefully.

the only thing that would make me not want to do this is the curves on the headliner. i just hope if i ever try it, itll look as good as yours though

what suede did you use? it looks like it streched way better than the stuff i used.

did you glue it right over the factory fabric or did you strip the headliner?

i just glued it over the factory fabric like most people do. seems to stick real well.

sounds good, because peeling it all off looks like a major PITA. I've had my roll us ultrasuede for over 2 years now, hopefully I will get it done soon. Another thing, did your ultrasuede have backing on it?

lol, mine has lots of imperfections, think its because fo the suede i used. its not microsuede or anything ad isnt fun to work with.
