    Default Hq sedan roof lining

    About to tackle my new roof lining and have forgotten how it joins at the front and back? Does it glue to the little strips screwed to the roof? I can't find any good threads or photos and I really want to learn how to do it. Also a bit of detail on how the pillar section meets up with the glue on vinyl skins. I'd like to do a detailed post in my build about this.

    I unpicked HZ one very recently. There was a small amount of glue around the edge at the front but not a lot. There is a reliance it seems on folding it under the metal plate at the front and then placing the thick front pinchweld over it. Fairly sure it was the original. Same with doors, just a small amout of glue right on the edge. I put a liner in my tonner about 5 years ago with Selleys Spray Adhesive and still looks as good as the day I put it there. Held on with foldback clips you would get from office stationery place, dozens of them.

    Thanks mate. I started it today just clipping it up and trimming little bits off at a time. Very little bits at a time.... It seems easy enough just I think I'll battle to get it nice on the rear pillars. Would you recommend tracing around the old one leaving a bit to start with?

    I did mine my self just use cut up bits of pinch weld to hold it all until you get it right then trim the excess off and glue it and pinch weld in place. Even if you don't get it perfect it does tighten up after a while and any ripples go away.
