The roof is even better in the flesh so to speak, a real professional job and makes Sylvia very cute

I think they cost somewhere between six and seven hundred. Fitted and the headlineing was just over eight.

, So in the event, and hopefully it won't happen, of her being written off will the nasty insurance company pay out for it?

No but I don't think that was a concern

Re: How to cure a sagging headliner for good!

Of course not. Soft top panda's arn't worth any more than tin top ones so why would they pay out any extra in the event of Sylvia's early demise? If she did get wrote off it would be a case of me and stu looking at the 'bionic panda' approach at my own expense....

Damn, looks like I'll have to give that a miss for my car then. A student bursary doesn't stretch that far

Still, it does look really good on Sylvia

Hope you saved the roof for Stuart... brilliant piece of metal for welding up holes are roofs
Looks awesome Jim, you must be pleased as punch.

Re: How to cure a sagging headliner for good!

Alan and i were out in it tonight and I said to him about the extra wind noise and he said 'You know this window on the passenger side is open a crack?'

Talk about 'Doh!' LOL



Thats it from the inside with the new roof lining. We had to put a couple of self tappers in at the B post due to the ruddy big hole and removal of the cross brace to stop the head lining sagging but other than that it's really well done.

Anyway, this is the bit where I had my nervous laughter....


Gosh, what a big hole!

Jim

Thanks dear... Now I know what you really think.... Cry! Cry!

Well... I can't see the pictures right now due to the work firewall blocking them but I'll be sure to check this out when I get home.

Thanks for the update Jim!
