Roof lining



  • im looking to replace my roof lining as i want the entire inside of the car black. following that i dont want to just spray what is already there.

    so does anyone know what material to use and glue etc…

    and on scale 1-10 (10 being hard) how hard is it to replace it. etc



  • I tried this last year with some heavier vinyl - it looked really nice and matched the texture on the dash. However on the first hot day the glue came undone and it sagged… :cry:

    I'm about to try again though. I just bought fabric from a local fabric store. There was a whole section for headlining material. Hopefully it will work better this time. I got a much lighter material!



  • well i think i will wait and see what happens at you end then. at mo going to find some double sicky tape and use that where the foam attaches to main roof. ( previous owner and dvd instally +alarm)



  • yeah I think I will work on it one night this weekend or next week. If I don't feel too lazy :roll:



  • double sided sticky tape?? :lol:

    get glue in a can, carpet fitters use it, it sprays glue out of a can, simple job ;)



  • mate used the spray glue in a car before. and i looked like someone had squrted c*ck snot all over the roof and let it dry



  • it might be a few more weeks until I work on mine… I've had some more important projects come up... :oops: :roll:



  • mines on hold also. still waiting on bloody job interviews so need to save all cash i can get. and world cup taking up alot of time



  • came across this while browsing. about halfway down the page is a guys write up of how he did his along with the type of glue he used. Thought it might give you guys some ideas.

    :lol: if you spray it too thick, ti'll look like that, i've retrimmed lots of stuff in sub carpet, and its come out fine as i've only sprayed a very thin layer, as in not enough for the glue to soak through to the surface
