    CTS-V w/Custom Headliner (Pictures)

    Hello,
    Thought we would share a couple of cool behind the scenes images of a custom headliner install we did a while back for a customer. This customer was looking for something a little more sporty but still match the OEM colors/textures. In addition to that he wanted to see the perforation design carried into the headliner and a/b/c pillars. So we came up with the following -

    Removed -






    Installed -





    We used the same OEM sourced material for this installation to ensure the same level of quality in texture and finish. More information about custom interiors can be found on our website http://www.d3cadillac.com/products/d3-bespoke-interiors. Please let us know if there are any questions.

    Thank you,

    Dr. Design

    If i was doing all that (which I wish I could), I would at least do it to match the rest of the interior. I hate how GM vehicles always have a beige upper regardless of the color of the rest of the interior.

    Not that we are aware of. I know we have done a few vehicles in which guys smoked cigars and the smell would get absorbed into the suede... But for those non-smokers out there or the guys that just dont care, its a pretty nice compliment to the interior.

    Thanks,

    Usually there's two upper interior colors (if not more) ... i've not seen any GM car in recent years that only has one interior (upper/headliner) color option.

    Ok, you can hook me up with the black headliner and the real carbon trim!

    everything in the car is already black though. A single interior color doesn't look as great as it sounds, if the suede inserts in the seats were a different color it would work, but they're black too, all black trim would look bad imo. Personally, I'm not a fan of thperforationon, If I do the interior cloth trim, I'm thinking it's going to be in alcantara. The B5 S4 and G8 GT I've owned had all black interiors, sans the inserts in the seats, single color interiors just somehow look cheapened.

    Re: CTS-V w/Custom Headliner (Pictures)

    Hello,
    Not really. There are some plastic tabs with metal clips that create some noise when pressure is applied to them. Not a lot of you can do about it other than to make sure they are seated properly. In addition to that we make sure that the plastic panels are not in contact with each other. If they are we ensure that the material covers over the edge to alleviate any plastic on plastic rubbing.

    Thank you,

    Do you mind me asking how you removed the headliner?

    I don't have a giant hole in the roof, I'm guessing that's where it came out?
