You can use one square yard for each pair... just cut it in half and use one for each. So 3 square yards.
3 square yards. BUT you are going to be about 2 or 3 inches short from side to side... and from the front about 1/2 way back (the front of the headliner is slightly wider than the rear). SO, I would reccomend doing the headliner first. And for the extra strip, trimming away from the 3 yards needed for the pillars.
And depending on how stretchy the material is... you may need extra yard for the front pillars, because if the material is stiffer, their weird contour would force you to do it in two pieces. So that MIGHT require an extra yard. I literally sat at my kitchen table staring at that pillar cover and playing with the material on it for 2 nights... and the only thing that would work would be doing it in two pieces.... But I had stiff material. That being said, I was careful with it and careful to not let the glue bleed accross the seam, and you can't even tell unless you look for it.
Where are you located? If you're attempting this and want some help, I might be able to swing by.
Or again, feel free to gimme a call if you get into it and have any questions... just PM me for a #
Kinda looks like my trunk cover but a lot lighter.
Good job on the execution hopefully the glue holds and you don't have fabric draping down after a while.
I wouldn't mind a nice solid color suede liner in mine.
I have thought of re-doing it in a black suede. But I like how much the blue plaid stands out. lol, I'll be walking through a parking lot and come upon my car and be like "whoah," still.
ahhh, that's why it looks different. Mine is black and your's is blue.
so is Colorado too far?

I just did my headliner on Saturday and the back is sagging....anyone have any advice to fixing it...?
Yeah If i could get the "GTI seats" plaid, I'd do the headliner in that and get seats to match.

Daaw poop. I'll find some other plaid. How long would you say this would take start to finish if It were to be worked nonstop and everyone knew what they were doing?
I am a ham radio operator and want to drill a hole in the roof and route a coax cable from about 10" in front of the stock antenna. Would it be possible to just pull down the aft part of the headliner and route my coax down the most aft pillar, or would I have to remove the whole thing anyway to prevent damaging it?
it would be possible. should be easy enough with just a metal clothes hanger or something to snake the wire through. It would probably work best to take off the right A-pillar (front) and take off the front right grab handle to pry the headliner down just a little to fish the coax cable above the headliner.
So i just recovered my headliner and went to put it back in.. Any advice on screwing the grab handles back in??? The nuts move all over when i try to screw them back in.. Its driving me crazy
What kind of car do you have? MKV?
Hey I know this post is older but how much adhesive/glue did you use? Like, did you coat the whole thing or just a few spots?
