Beautiful material! This was my first headliner installation, but wouldn’t know it after it was all done. The job turned out well. The Maule M5-180C headliner uses contact cement to attach it to the edges. If not applied sparingly to the fabric, the contact cement will soak through and be visible on the other side of the fabric. I learned this the hard way. Apply a light coat, followed by another light coat. The instructions don’t tell you that. Seams to hold well enough after contact is made. Work out the wrinkles as best as you can. Save the steam shrinking after the whole headliner is installed, after which I cut the holes for the seatbelts and rear seat sling.

Absolute trash. Waste of money. Zippers are garbage and are all puckered, worst of all, it doesnt even fit! Panels are sewn incorrectly in the wrong place! Unbelievable!

Headliner came a lot faster than anticipated. Took less than 2 months. Its a great fit and mine was well sown. Lots of excess material to trim. I got the wool liner and the fabric doesnt stretch too easily, not is it prone to rip.

I will rate this item as a 5 for packaging and time of delivery from order date. To have you manufacture and ship within the time quoted was fantastic. The packaging with good covering and a plastic bag to eliminate moisture is most appreciative. We will have to wait for the availability of a hanger for installation so I can not rate the product at this time. Thank you and I am looking forward to a new headliner in this 170B that I enjoy flying.

I purchased a Grey Wool headliner for my 1960 Cessna 182C. I am impressed with the quality of the fabric, not thin and very strong. The only thing was the size of panel 2 and 3(coming forward from the back they seem to be slightly long. Forward of that is a perfect fit. I have not steamed it yet but I am sure those two panels will tighten right up. If they do I will upgrade to 5 star.

Q: Does your headliners include the formed backing board or is it only the fabric/etc. to replace on the original backing board?

The headliners do not come with back boards, or bows. The original units must be used.

Q: Is the tan headliner wool or vinyl? Also, does the kit come with glue and everything needed for installation?

The tan headliners are wool. These are sold as pre-sewn fabric envelopes only. No adhesive, or any other attaching parts are included.

Q: Is the gray headliner wool? Advantages of wool over vinyl besides the look / feel?

Yes, the gray headliners are wool. There are no real advantages or disadvantages of either. Vinyl may be a tad easier to clean. Other than that, it's basically just like you said, personal preference on look and feel.

Q: If i have a vinyl headliner, can I install a wool headliner in its place? Are they the same exact pattern?

Yes. The headliners would be cut from the same pattern regardless of material.

Q: Do the headliners come with a burn cert for log book documentation?

Q: Do the headliners come with a burn cert for log book documentation?

If the OEM design had the attaching strips, then yes the new headliner will have this.
