    Well I'm going to Wally World tonight to get out of the house. I was just curious to know if anyone's used walmarts fabric material for headliner or any interior. I just don't see paying 20.00 a yard.

    I actually picked up there automotive fabric carpet material awhile back to convert from vinyl flooring to carpet. It actually looked pretty decent but got dirty real quick so I ended up putting back the vinyl. Here's a picture of it:

    i wouldn't advise it. most materials from wally world are going to be super thin. when you put glue on it (for the headliner) it's very likely to bleed right through. i wouldn't use it on the seats either as it won't have the durability to hold up long term.

    interior fabrics aren't that expensive. you can do a headliner material (in suede) for $15 a yard. or you can get tweeds for $12 a yard. vinyls can be found anywhere from $12-15 a yard.

    just my $0.02.

    I got my Camo material from jo-anns fabrics for $18 a yard and that was expensive stuff! You can get it for as low as $4 a yard. And if your gonna use it for a high-traffic area (such as seats or floor) then Id definitly look into some thicker stuff

    This is exactly what I bought. They had some 3m stuff but Another guy I know who drives a ranger wrapped his headliner in mossy oak material. And his held up good. But his was a darker color than grey!!!
