Headliners: Cruiser Corps vs. SOR
 
I'll be replacing the one in my '78 40 soon. The foam backing has disentegrated and seperated from the front, so it no longer sticks. I have the top off the 40 right now for paint (woo-hoo!), so this will be a great time to do this, right after I add the 70 series 3rd brake light...

Has anyone compared the Cruiser Corps headliner material to the SOR headliner?

Wondering about a side-by-side comparision. I have read a few of the recent threads on MUD where people report what they are using, and if they are pleased.

I have not seen any side-by-side pics. I'd like a headliner that will keep the inside quiet (ha!) and cool.

Any experience you can relay is appreciated!

you're a few weeks too late. i shipped my sor headliner off with the blue pig and my cruiser corps headliner is in the rafters, but never compared the two. :(

SOR headliners have stuck well for me. No experience with Cruiser Corps. You didn't ask this, but CCoT seems repellant of all glues, until I used water-based Liquid Nails, applied with a fine toothed adhesive applicator. For this reason, I would avoid CCoT.

I did read your experience - other CCOT purchases have left me wanting, so I am not considering them...

I am very pleased with the SOR headliner. Nice and thick and looks like the original. Can't say about the Cruiser Corp.
I will say that I wish I would have let it "breathe" for a while before I installed it. I just opened up the package and glued it in. Had I let it sit for a while I think the one wrinkle I have in it would have flattened out.

TJ...very pleased with my SOR headliner, which has been in for about three years now. In itself, the head liner will do very little to reduce sound and heat. I had mine professionally installed and let them talk me out of putting in Dynamat, Quiet Crap, etc. They said they were worried about it coming loose with heat. They glued in the OEM-style insulation...don't know why that'd be any different. In any event, I'm happy, though I'd probably go ahead and clean off the inside of the roof and put in the foil/rubber mat if I had it to do over. I used Quiet Crap on all side surfaces, firewall, tailgate and floor and the difference is incredible.

Are you talking about the headliner for your 55? I am asking about headliner for my 40.

For the 55 I did put some Cruiser Crap up to the metal roof before the headliner went in.
