Headliner Color Questions and Opinions needed

So finally getting the interior of my car all lined up as the body is nearing some sort of stage of completion. My question is with tan and black leatherette interior do you think that the white stock headliner will look out of place, cause I have a feeling it will. This leaves me the question of do I dye it Black? Have people done this with good results?? Do I find some other material to do it out of (suede best friends jetta mk1 coupe did this looks and feels awesome.) SO I need some suggestion maybe ideas...

Thanks as always

you can buy dye the liner, if it's still in good condition, that would be easier than installing a new one...

you can buy Dupli-Color in a few basic colors, icluding tan and black at any auto parts stores or if you'll shop at an autobody supply store, you may find Sem in a variety of semi-custom colors

pull off all the pinchweld trim that surrounds the headliner, tape everything else off and cover you dash, etc and push the button on the spray can

i'd suggest spraying one way, then the other to prevent it from mottleing

Except for the odd occassion (!!) the headliner is not something that is usually stared at. You won't be looking up at it while driving, so why not just leave it stock white?

the best place if you have to buy one and least expensive is GoLiners....google him, he has a store on ebay...$99.00 i think...and almost any color you'd want....maybe not purple or lime green but he has a lot of choices
