Hello! I've got an '01 T&C LXi with the navy interior and cream headliner. Well, the headliner is completely sagging and needs to be replaced. I was wondering if anyone knew about any good stores or sites that have a foam-backed headliner type of material with the best color match to the cream '01 headliner. Thanks!

No clue on where to get that headliner material, but if the material is in good shape you can use some upholstery twist pins to hold it back up. I used a pack of these on a 15 seater Dodge van and they work great.
You can find them cheaper than in that link. I just picked the first result that had a picture. :p

You can buy it online, Amazon or any other online store like this one:

HEADLINERS

In my opinion, twist pins looks very, very ugly but, I guess some people doesn't care.

Your old headliner can not be glued back.

You will need to scrap the headliner foam off. It's a PITA, check out this YT vid. I did mine just like this guy did. It works so well and fast. About 20mins overall. Really, it's not that bad to remove that sticky foam.

But, the clean up took just as long. hahahaha. It stuck to the garage floor and anything else I had flung it onto. So, caution is, get used cardboard boxes and surround the headliner before starting the job with the drill. This way, the only thing to clean are your shoes and the cord of the drill. (shoe pull-overs to toss out works great too.) Do not shop-vac this stuff up either. get a $1 hand broom and dust pan from the dollar-tree.

As for refabricing the head-liner, remember, the van is older and has higher miles. I took a medium epoxy gray paint that was 2 shades darker than the interior. It turned out nice. I've since passed that van off, but the current one now has the T-pins.

Duplicolor also has a fabric texture paint out. I've not used it, but YT has a few folks showing how to apply the stuff.

Just DO NOT do what this guy did. He only pealed off the fabric and left the foam. He then painted the foam. What do you think will happen after a few warm days? Tiny foam particles all in your hair, eyes, nose and clothing every time you drive!
