Headliner Restoration

Postby wentwilly » Wed Apr 02, 2008 8:41 am

Hello-Just finished the forward cabin reconditioning on Journey(42-155). We were ready to bite the bullet and replace the old moldy headliner material- it just would not clean up. A friend aboard sugested a product called Kilz-made for stain blocking on acoustic tile-wow-it worked very well. It was not fun, it took more time to mask off the areas of new paint- but it came out looking as new, and considering the expense and involvement of replacement- I would do it again-took a day and a half and thirty bucks!-Great stuff!-Willy

Kilz is used often by painters and wallboard contractors to kill mold on wallboard and prepare if for painting. Most swear by it.

I've used kilz on my headliner too. It goes a lot faster if you brush or roll it on with a thick roller. You'll fill in some of the holes so have a tooth pick ready. The first time I sprayed it and it took forever to mask everything. I hope to have time this year to replace the headliner but the kilz paint is good for temporary fix.
