Removing headliner paneling Leopard 39

Hi all,
I need to replace the wiring from a dedicated 12V DC breaker to a cabin fan. The existing wiring enters the cabin through an elliptical (plywood/vinyl covered?) headliner panel that has no visible fasteners and is inlaid into a recess in the ceiling fiberglass. I can replace the wiring without removing the panel, but panel removal will be needed for future maintenance throughout the vessel, as well as being able to visualize deck hardware attachments. I'm hoping that these non-abutting decorative panels are velcro'd , not glued, in place. Anyone know?

Re: Removing headliner paneling Leopard 39

Daniel,
I can speak about the salon panels on my L38. The outside edges are Velcro to remove the first panel but be careful as the opposite edge of that same panel is tongue and groove. Subsequent panels working towards the middle have screws on the outside and that tongue and groove again. Good luck and work slow. If you are forcing it, you are missing something.

Like Don said Velcro and tongue n groove. Find the Velcro edge first. Then access will be wonderful. We have a special putty knife we cut a notch into to help facilitate starting Velcro edges. We Also noted all Velcro edges for future access.
