356C Headliner Installation

Recommended Posts

Getting ready to install a new headliner as well as new interior on my 356C. Just wondering if any one has prior experiences with the task and has some tips.

Had a hole poked in the headliner of my 63 B coupe and was told by Klasse 356 in Allentown PA that the windshield and Rear glass needed to be removed to accomplish this and the cost was in the range of $2000, of which the majority was labor. I held off and have been living with the tear. Goood Luck

$2000 seems extreme. I installed my own headliner when I was restoring my 63 B coupe. When the car was apart I could have had someone do the headliner itself for $100. The procedure for installing the headliner is well described in the 356 Technical and Restoration Guide. Suffice to say it involves patience, glue and a lot of large black paper clamps available at office supply stores. It is very doable if you don't mind spending the time.

If your car is already assembled you have to remove the front and rear glass. You also have to remove the rear quarter windows and the rubber gaskets around the windows and doors. But none of this is rocket science. If you don't want to do it yourself I would shop around. It's not a $2000 job.
