    The original owner was a park ranger(or something like that) in the Red River area, and I guess he used his truck A LOT for work or recreation. There's so much of this red clay and sand in the truck it's crazy.

    I've got the truck interior stripped out right now for my deadening project, and was wondering if I could use my pressure washer on the headliner w/o doing any damage.

    Any experience with this?

    Thanks in advance,

    Johnny

    No, headliners are not at all durable, it's basically just some fabric fuzz glued on to a plastic board. Get yourself some 303 Carpet and Upholstery Cleaner/Spot Remover and it should clean everything up nicely, just be gentle with your scrubbing.

    Rent a steam cleaner. I steam cleaned my seats and took a shop vac to the interior of my truck awhile back and the entire looked and smelled brand new, despite the fact I smoke in my truck.

    It smelled like new to you, put a non-smoker in there and they would probably gag. :D

    I was afraid it might damage the headliner, but I had seen the suggestion on a couple other forums when I googled it. There were never any post about the results though...figured I'd ask before I screwed it up.

    I'll just use the shop vac and hope for the best. Maybe look into a new headliner.

    I don't know how the hell this guy got some much of this stuff in the truck, but he was obviously a pro at it.
