I need to replace the sagging headliner material in my 1990 and 1995 Dakota.  Any place in particular you guys buy your headliner material?

I found stockinteriors.com online: http://www.stockinteriors.com/items.asp?MakeId=33&ModelId=165&MainCatId=7&Desc=Dodge_Dakota_-_Regular_Cab_Headliner

Maybe check with Eastwood?  Not sure if they have something or not.

Joann fabrics. cheap too
 there is another similar fabric store chain, we do not have around here (forget the name of that one, closest on this other place is 80 miles away, have seen them in other areas)   Cheap, too.
 but i found almost an identical match to my son's Ramcharger there;   they each only had a few colors (and were different between them)  but unless you are doing a chalk mark restoration, close should be good enough.

I'm with donram, I replaced my 92 dak headliner with material from joann fabrics nearly perfect color and texture match. Just be sure to use a layer of fleece under the material to prevent flaws in the solid part of the headliner from showing,

I found some headliner material on ebay for $24 shipped.  There is enough for this vehicle as well as my 1990 Dakota.  The color is definitely close enough.

just made a down payment at the upholstery shop yesterday and got fabric ordered... I don't sublet out a lot of stuff but I want my visors done too so might as well have them do it all... changing to a color that matches the dash and the rest of the interior... I got some trim paint and adhesion promoter to paint my grab handles and hooks and stuff... hope it all works ok, never had a lot of good luck painting plastic stuff

That should turn out nice. 

When I find the time to do the headliner in my other truck, I think I'll wait until I have someone to help hold the edges/corners up while I smooth from the center outward.  Once you have applied adhesive to both the headliner board and the material, and let it tack up, once the two pieces touch each other, you can forget pulling it back up to re-position it without tearing the material.

yea I'm pretty excited, that's bugged me since I got the truck, I had to push it up everytime I got in or it would touch my head, I did a couple of test pieces with the plastic paint and it seems pretty durable, I got the headliner actually dropped off to the shop today, also I went to my local salvage yard and actually picked up a set of leather/vinyl visors that are a grey color match to my headliner material/dash that are stupid nice considering they have been in a truck that's missing a door and sitting outside for who knows how long LOL my upholstery guy is still doing my visors but then I can pick whichever ones I like more to use at the end and have a spare set of visors as well... I made it VERY clear I expect flawless results when I pick it up and am not in a hurry for it, and also made it VERY clear that since he quoted me a pretty low price compared to everyone else I planned on giving him a large tip based on how flawless it is LOL

Don.

There's an upholstery shop somewhere in your area.  My work uses them for seats/visors and headliners.  If you want I can see where they are located?

yeah probably Riverside trim and glass.   I use them for glass work. I tried to get them to do a set on a snowmobile for my son a few years ago and I guess they have someone that they  call  on an "as needed" basis that was unavailable at that time.

  There's a woman in the area that used to own a trim shop in Bradley that is now closed, but she still does this stuff out of her home garage.  (I see her in the stands every time I go to a demo derby) She's really good at what she does, her name is Barb.
but for a headliner, not a big deal to do, I used to "have" them one before I knew what there was to doing them, (not much)
I can do ~4 of em myself,  for the price of "having" one done.
