Headliner and Insulation

I have not found a lot of info through my searches on headliners. I just put my top on and want to install a headliner and insulate it well. Put the top on due to going to SC and the chance of rain.

I know of the cardboard and fiberglass options. I think the cardboard only comes in white. Someone told me you can paint it. Have not looked much at the fiberglass. Another issue is the top is on and a full family roll bar. I do not plan to take it off. Hoping I have room to get a headliner over the cage and installed. May have to take off but would rather not???

Have you made your own headliner? What type of materials have you used?

What materials have you used to insulate. I have seen something about insulation you can get at the big box stores. Not sure of the name. I have heard of Dynamat and Hushmat or something like that. This may just be for the floor.

Any recommendations or comments would be appreciated.

The big box store stuff is for hvac applications but does work for insulation and sound detonating

I used hushmat, specifically the HushMat 10401 kit. Covered with a common replacement cardboard headliner. All fit under my rollbar. The mat really quietened things down and stopped any "oil canning" of the top when driving down the highway with windows down.

One of the members from Alaska had a nice write up a few years ago, but he had the top off.

RFP panels would leave you a smooth or textured surface. When I get around to it I'll be using a home made lizard skin. Ceramic beads and latex paint. Much cheaper than buying lizard skin. The current plan is to add some insulation over the beads then RFP panels. Getting the radius on the ends will be the hardest part.

Just make sure you completely clean and degrease the top first. It helps to warm the material also, in the sun. The warmer the top and material is, the better for the initial stick.

You can follow this thread too, especially post #20

Used the Noico product on my hard top last fall before I put it back on. I sanded, cleaned, degreased and then installed it. Was a huge pain in the butt, have the top off made it alot easier. Then installed a new cardboard headliner from Wildhorses.

I was mostly doing it because I wanted to replace the headliner. I was tired of the snow fall everytime I opened the window. The sound deadner was a bonus for me. I am really surprised at how much it helped with the sound. It made the inside of my Bronco feel more like a "newer" car with a full top. Zero tin can sound.

I used this on my roll up shop door. Really insulates well. Would not know what to use to stick it on the top. I guess you could use some kind of 3M spray adhesive.

Thanks guys. I might use either the HVAC stuff or the Eastwood Dynaliner with the Noico.

If I use the HVAC insulation, any recommendations for adhesive?

That looks nice. Do you have a similar pic of your finished headliner?

Where do you buy RFP panels?

Go check out the Bronco I built (Tony,s 69). I used Dynamat, it has a custom soft head liner and a family cage. I would not change a thing, very happy with the finished product.

I usually do not look at the builds since they are soooo long. Man that is one sick Bronco. Great job. Lots of ideas there.

As much as I hate the box stores, that will your best bet. Many commercial bathrooms use it on the walls. Easy to clean. Like I mentioned, getting the bend where it comes down will be the hardest part. Have a few scraps and practice with a heat gun to find the sweet spot.

Looks nice. That is probably the easy way for me to go I guess. Someone told me you could paint the headliner. I would want black.
