Default Need headliner for 1980.

Prefer black, but could dye it.

I bought my headliner (ABS) from OPGI along with all of the clips for $220. It was a perfect fit and while the upholstery shop would do it for $150, I did not have the old headliner. It was broken and would not hold its shape. with the headliner I bought I never have to worry about the cardboard getting wet or cracking on the corners. It took 3 days from the time I placed the order til I installed it. No down time because my car was never in the shop. Perfect color also. And no, I do not work for OPGI, I'm just refering them because I got exactly what I wanted and have bought alot of items from them before and after.

Another 3 to 9 years should finish it. In year 7 and still working on it - no end in sight.

I paid 75 for mine at a local upholstery shop, and it only took them about an hour. (Most likely they will be excited to do one for an el camino instead of any other G body).

Farily easy DIY project, once you get the headliner out. You can buy fabric on line, or even at a local JoAnn Fabrics. Cost of Fabric is about $15, plus a can of adhesive $8. Scrape, Clean, Spray and Roll out the fabric. Trim the edge and re-install. Most ofo the cost at the upholstry shop is getting the headliner out and in. Also, expect to have to replace some of the clips- they are getting old and will likely break when trying to remove.
If you are ambitious, you can use the same material to recover your visors. Ask if you want more info.

Unfortunately the hardboard is all cracked and broken. If it were in good shape I'd do that.

I got mine from OPGI as well, took me 20 mins to install and looks way better! The cloth looks better to me as well.
