Tips on fitting Roof Lining
Posted 02 November 2011 - 08:36 PM
Ive had a look on there website which gives a basic run down:
One big concern I have is about the 2 wires. There are hooks in the beams running across the roof which the wires are held up by. The rear beam has all the hooks in tact. The front beam however.... out of the 6 hooks total, 3 have been broken off....
From right to left it goes. hook-missin-hook-interior light-missing-missing-hook.....
Im not sure what to do here.... I was thinking drilling another hole next to the existing one where the hook is missing and feeding a small cable tie through? Or even just some lockwire?
Ive been told to fit the wires first up???
Ive bought 2m of pinch weld which Ill cut up into bits to keep the edges in place when Im fitting.
Any hints,tips or suggestions would be appreciated.

The headlining in question was for a XM Ford Falcon, so maybe that's why I had trouble.

It's easy enough to fit though, but make sure you use all of the hooks in the roof....otherwise it may not look right in the part you didn't use a hook.
When we did mine a hook broke off and I really didn't think much of it, and it's just a little inconsistent in that spot, otherwise it was an ebay buy that looks great . Good luck!

Can I ask a BIG FAVOR..... Can someone please take a pic of the B pillar where the roof lining meets the pillar? Im not sure how high or low this part of the lining should be....

What adhesive will / did you use? Is a Kwik Grip type of glue ok to use when gluing the edges?
The pinch weld looks like its the goods to use as well!

I guess most people get upholsterers to fit there roof linings?
I paid a upholsterer to do mine. He stripped out the old roof lining/ all old pillar velour that was glued on including the old velour door tops then fitted all the factory stuff including the vynal on the 'a' ? pillar at the front. All done in 24 hrs at a cost of $300. Money well spent I think ;-)

One small thing I did prior to fitting the headlining was to take a few bits of paper and mark out the positions of all the holes for the grab handles, sunvisor mounts and rear view mirror. Hopefully will save me having to poke around endlessly searching for a hole...?

the trim code is 1916-65v (sienna)?
