How much have you guys paid to get your roof lining stuck back to the roof as mine now sits on my head!!! Have heard my mates say round the $200 just wondering what a good price would be.

how about take out the roof lining yourself, rub off the orange sticky stuff and put back in the roof lining with no fabric?

or does it look crap?

yeah someone made a doco on how to remove the old carpet off the backing and glueing another one on.

He peeled the old fabric off, then used a soft broom to remove the orange foam stuff...got some new fabric (colour of your choice) and then glued it back on with some glue.

Had some snaps and they came out pretty good.

phong =P~

Apparantly not a hard job at all. And you can buy fabrics from textiles and do it yourself. I know I will when I find a textile place that has nice velour.

I paid about $130 for new fabric fitted to my sedan.
A small workshop in Tweed Heads South did it back
in 2005. The bloke did a very good job too...
