There are several artilcles on headlining replacement on the UK Catalac
site at Your Heading Goes Here
including one by me about Hi Jude.
Is this a costly job - depends really on how much you do youreself, the quality of the replacement, and the type of glue.
I used a very expensive glue normally supplied for car headlinings, in order to get as high a melt point as possible.
I used a felt backed carpet as the basis for the headlining.
I did all the preparation work myself (helped enormously by my son)
I kept the old headlining as a template for the new one.
I employed professional carpet fitters to fit the headling (strongly advised).
Result was about half the price
of a professional doing all the work, and the carpet is a much better insulator than normal headlining. The pictures in the PBO article show what the results are!
