headliner problem

So im redoing my headliner cause it was sagging pretty bad. Some spots like under the flip down visors were still attached. So my question goes out to those who have redid their fabrics. When you do them, do you leave the existing foam on there or just reattach the fabric straight to the cardboard backing? Some of the foam is trying to come off with the existing fabric and im wondering if i just screwed myself.

I was thinking that. I know it would be way easier cause i wouldnt have to worry about preserving that stupid foam

It works great. I have the generic tunes cause i dont have injectors yet but it really does wake the truck up. I keep it in 140 the whole time lol. I cant stand going back to stock position cause it feels like im not going anywhere. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Did it turn out pretty good? Like as far as sticking good and no creases?

You wont regret it. I mounted mine right above my window controls on my door. Just fed the wire thru the rubber boot in the door. Clean look and easy to change settings.
One more question about the headliner. You use regular fabric or that foam backed interior fabric?
