The wrap is actual fabric woven to look like carbon fiber, and you can feel the texture on the weaves.

That's why I was considering doing either my headliner or headliner + sunvisors with it.

Or maybe switch it up and do the headliner with alcantara & have the visors in cf wrap?

I'm just concerned about how hard it might be to take everything out without damaging it as I've never pulled my headliner, or any headliner, out before.

The question about the glue type also. Not sure what will stand up to the heat, as my friend who works for subie specialties tried redoing her headliner, and within a week it was drooping down from the glue warming up and just becoming goo again.
I definitely don't have a lot of experience with the Alcantara but with my personal experience I used permatex spray adhesive from the local hardware store. It holds up pretty good, I'm just not to good at laying the fabric. I think most people just use 3M spray adhesive.
