      my headliners fabric is falling down and its annoying as hell. whats the best fabric to use, but also the easiest to work with? also, anybody know where i can get the fabric in question for a good deal?

      edit: just wanted some opinions, my black cloth seats are red stitched, but thats all thats red on the interior. would blue accents look okay with that? (im talkin like the oh **** handles, and my floor leds are blue already). i just dont want it to look rice.

      Any fabric store. Thinner fabric with some stretch is ideal but not a necessity. Fabrics like suede and leather that have a stiff backing are hard to work with unless they have some stretch, others I have found it not to matter too much. Red/Blue may be okay together however the sound of Blue handles and floor leds just screams rice but too each their own.

      Since car interiors are ridiculously flamable... I'm guessing not.
