Hi got a AU XR8 ute and wanting to reline the roof black.

I have pulled the roof lining out and thought maybe i can do this myself ?

If i went to spot light and brought some thin material and some glue,stuff you spray ? i could cut to size and stick it on ,wrap around edges to the back ?

any advice be good ?
cheers

yes i have advice ....i have helped do this before.....make sure that u use the original roof board the reline your roof ....make sure u use a competant wood glue or fast stick adhesive .... this is not in fact an easy thing to do in most cases of replacing the rooflining you will get sag.... but if you do it properly leaving no unstuck bits of fabric it should turn out alright....bek
