Mk 1 Headlining (2 replies)
Has anyone replaced the headlining fabric on a Mk 1?, after 35 years in the garage loft mine is not responding well to cleaning and the glue stains are really prominent.
Yes, I have just done it on a MK2, pig of a job. Bought the lining from Optimise. Rather than staple it around the frame I sewed it, could not get the staples to make it tight enough. Gluing is definitely a two man job. Another problem was getting it back in and the two halves to interlock. Perhaps I am lucky to have a roll cage to hold int up there!
Thanks - I'm going to have to bite the bullet, the glue staining is extensive and dark brown, I prefer to use the original parts but this is so bad it would let the rest of the car down. I have to nip up to MiniSport tomorrow to pick up some conrod bolts, so I willget the Newton one from them.
