Default roof tear - damn it

When putting something into the PT, my wife caused a slight puncture in the roof liner. Are there any fixes for this...or should I just get the entire liner replaced?

Honestly the puncture is about 1/4" in diameter, not huge...but I know it's there.

Any suggestions?

An applique or graphic could be placed over it.

It would be hard to make a repair that doesn't attract more attention than the tear itself...

That being the case, Streamline Design (and others) make quite an assortment of graphics that are designed to stick to the sun visor and rear deck. They should stick equally well on the headliner.

I think you'll need a new head liner to make it look right, sorry[8]

If they would stick, flames from Streamline would look cool. Place one here, one there, one over the rip, etc. [?]

Replacement of the roof-liner is the only way you may be fully satisfied with the "final look" but you may want to first try one of the quality-made decals from Streamline Design such as...
or, something like this.... Depending on the location of the tear one or more of these may or may not look good, but, it's worth a try. Good luck.

If you're totally distraught and a new headliner is out of the question for now, maybe try this:

Go under your pillar covers and get some spare material.
Glue part of it on a piece of cardboard.
Punch some 1/4" holes in it.
Use extra material to make small patches that just barely fit inside the holes. I use my wife's small curved sissors.
Put in some glue (3M Plastic and Emblem Adhesive) using toothpicks.
Add material.
If the practice looks good enough, try it on the headliner.

Hope this helps!!!

P.S. I've done this on cigarette burn holes and it looked better than the hole. Also, sometimes instead of using the whole material, I just cut off the fuzz and lightly overlay it on adhesive.
