Hello all,

Just posting this here hoping someone can offer up some help. I recently noticed a tear in the headliner of my BS. I was wondering if anyone has had to fix a similar type of tear before and if so, how did you do it? I am hoping to not have to pay someone a crazy amount of money to fix it... I was thinking about using upholstery stitching to bring it together but I don't want it to look tacky.

P.S I know it isn't that serious BUT visually looking at stuff like that really irritates me to no end...

How did it happen? Were you hauling something cool? Were you doing some off roading and hit a branch? Some other cool story?

I'd get some contrasting thread and stitch that up.

That’s what I was thinking as well just need to work on my stitching technique 😅 and not anything too cool. I believe it happened when I was hauling some dry-wall to my parents house to put up for them. Unfortunately not a story cool enough to keep the rip!

The tear sucks, but hey, you could probably dream up some war story for it, but I agree with the contrasting stitching previously suggested 🙂

Yeah I’m working on my story to tell people😭 Just curious though, do you guys think I should do stitching to match the beige headliner or a contrast stitch to match the exterior color?

Check out a local upholstery shop and see what they can do for you. It should not be that expensive to repair if you go the way of stitching it up, and they can match it and do a better (?) job of stitching!

You can pull down the headliner and stitch from the backside. That should minimize noticeability.

Maybe try your best to stitch it to stop the rip from getting larger.
Then place a some sort of fabric patch over the area to cover. Put a patch on the the same location on opposite side to make it look intentional. Gorilla Glue makes a fabric adhesive spray, craft stores also sell no-stitch fabric glue,

A patch like this would be decent depending on sizing.

Hi, I think I would stitch it carefully and maybe do a patch, like a Ford Patch or a Bronco, something tasteful. I think to re do the whole thing might be pricey. There’s tons of patches, there’s an Amazon store called patch club. Or maybe get ideas off You Tube videos. A black bronco horse would look good since it’s all over, might look on purpose, can add one on the other side.

Agreed. Thank you for the input!

Update: Have some sturdy upholstery threading to stitch it up. Then I have a Bronco patch coming in to put over it. I will post updates once they are installed!
