Can't help you. But here is a pic of modified Magnum headliner.
Can't tell if it is suede or not.
Katzkin did the seats. Don't know who did the headliner.

One thing bad about the 300 headliner, and visor material, is dirt transfers too easily to the material
I accidentally brushed the headliner with a folded newspaper and there is now a black streak across the headliner. The visor is made of the same material. I have to be real conscious not to touch the visor with dirty hands. I havn't tried to clean the headliner or visor material, but it looks like it won't clean very easily, if at all. It looks like dirt/cleaner solutions will just smear and look worse if I try to clean it.

X2. I have some bad marks/scuffs on mine from working on my own car sadly enough. I planned on making a post and trying a few products out. If it doesn't work out, I'll have Alcantra put in instead. :D

I offer this service but I am in Dallas. I will be coming out with a headliner "Kit" if any are interested. The fabric is not wide enough so there has to be a couple seams...

joey & rogue, this is what I used the bone-colored wool upholstery & carpet in my '35... even worked on a hot pink dye transfer from a rod run poster! Supposedly not available anymore in CA, but can be found on the web:

K2r Spot Lifter:
The original and still the best, K2r Original is highly effective in removing oil and grease from dry-clean only fabrics (including polyester, acrylic, nylon, wool blends-regular and knits), washable fabrics, carpets and household and office upholstery (including sofas, recliners, chairs, etc.).

Easy To Use: Simply spray the stain. Allow to dry to a white powder. Brush away using the built-in brush. Launder washable fabrics as normal after brushing. Repeat on stubborn stains. K2r leaves no ring and the stain is gone!


Regular price: $5.95
Sale price: $4.95

**As always, test first in an inconspicuous area and good luck!

We are putting charcoal grey suede for the seat inserts, doors and headliner. If you go with genuine suede...it will be expensive. But, they do make a pretty good faux suede. The only way I could tell the difference is the pattern doesn't change when you wipe it. Other than that, you can't tell by feel.

I would be interested in a kit. Please let me know. Dark or medium grey is fine. (dark preffered)

I found K2r at a local hardware store for $4.19. It was a little "scary" spraying it on the headliner because it left a huge white, and partially wet, spot on the headliner. The hard part was wiping the white powder off/out of the headliner. The powder buries itself into the fabric. I used a microfiber towel and rubbed a lot until the white spot was gone. Next time I will try a vacuum cleaner. But the dirt spot is now gone. Thanks for the suggestion!

Glad it worked out for you, hasn't failed me yet! :)
