I have a nice aftermarket headliner that I have in my El Camino and I'd like to trasfer it to another El Camino. The headliner is in very good shape with no drooping or rips or any flaws and it's only 9 years old. Can these be removed and reinstalled without damaging them?

It can be removed usually pretty easily, and isn't much work since the glue most of the time doesn't really tack the headliner down that hard, it can be gently pealed away from where it is glued. The only problem is the old glue is still all over the headliner, and is now not very tacky once it is removed. Adding more glue and tacking it up again will work, but it may not hold nearly as well. I would just shell out the $50 for a new one and save yourself the hassle of going through all the effort and then having it not want to stay up.

That and being the headliner is already stretched it may not contour to the roof of the new elky just right which may pose more challenges.
