First up, let’s gain an understanding of what starlights are.

What is a Starlight headliner?

The starlight headliners offered by Car Specialist Customs offer the unique factor of NOT being from LED lights, instead, they are made from fibre optic lights. These are lights that are refracted through fibre optic cables.

Are starlight headliners legal?

Our Starlights are completely legal, as they do not cause an obstruction, they are placed above your head on the interior roof, completely out of your field of vision.

What colours do starlights have available?

The true level of customisation for our starlights is massive, available in a wide range of colours with up to 500+ different options! You can choose white, several base colours or different variations.

Additionally, you can even also control how the lights twinkle, or if they stay on. The car starlight headliner can be optimised to twinkle at its own rate.

To add an extra layer of personability to your starlights, you can download an additional app to control the rate of twinkling to a level that you see fit. The starlights are controlled wirelessly through Bluetooth.

You can get a number of star light headliners for your car’s roof, however, the amount may be limited depending on your vehicle. As this is a process that does take a few hours, you should have to know the amount you would like before installing.

The number of lights you get for your star light headliner is ultimately down to preference and the number of lights your vehicle’s roof can facilitate.

Can I install Star Lights in a car?

Starlights can be added to almost any vehicle. It is possible for you to install it manually, however, you run the risk of damaging the wiring and other internal components in your vehicle. It is best to leave this to professionals with years of experience like Car Specialist Customs, the process of installation is as follows.

  • The process starts by disconnecting all dome, map lights and other trim pieces and removing the vehicle’s headliner.
  • Hundreds of small holes then need to be drilled or pinned in the top of the headliner mould, to fit the fibre optic lights, which are individually carefully placed just above the headliner fabric.
  • These lights are then attached by adhesive and then stranded together to be run to the location of the Light Source, typically in the trunk, rear seats, or under the vehicle’s dash, wherever you choose.
  • The process can take many hours, depending on the number of lights you’re installing.

Can any car have a star light headliners installed on it?

Convertible top cars, whether soft or hard hood, are not able to have starlights installed, due to the retracting and folding of the roof will potentially damage the wiring and lights. The same applies to sun-roof windows

However, cars with sunroofs are able to have starlights installed. Our expert technicians can install starlights to your desired specification. As long as your roof is not convertible, it can be done.

For complete peace of mind, there is a lifetime warranty. So if one or more of your lights burn out, we can replace them for you under warranty, or if anything else should happen.

Our car roof starlight technicians know how to dismantle and remove the roof lining to install the lights, then reinstall it back in place perfectly. We are experienced in working on a wide range of different vehicles from different manufacturers.
