When you recovered the headlining did you have to do any stitch work or was it one piece? Also have you redone the rear window surround? Mine is a grubby, saggy grey mess.... and still the best part of the interior.

Hello. Which part of the headlining do you mean. Sun visor housing or removable roof.

If you mean the rear window in the cabin then yes. This can be done with no sewing.

If you mean the rear window in the boot.

I'm doing that in the next week or two along with the rest of the boot

I want to do the roof lining including lift our panel and inside of rear window pref in light grey alcantara. The boot can wait a while but the headlining is very saggy and dirty.

Rear window surround for the boot is done. Only another 4 pieces for the boot to trim then the bonnet floor to cover20171102_185957.thumb.jpg.d8e4ca7a8e90035b1a487e457e891425.jpg


Good luck with the rear window surround, Pete. The wife took nearly a day to get it lined up and fitted properly. Absolute bastard of a job, although I see yours is in two pieces, so you might be better off.

Oh yeah, you really need a 'Wayne's Ring' round your gearstick gaitor to set it all off nicely.
