Cheers man. Managed the rear step without a primer or anything. Just stuck straight down...for now anyway.

But the rest seems pretty well stuck.

That said a primer may have been a good idea, because getting it to stick between the ridges on the step was a real pain.

Re: Carbon Fibre Vinyl...work has begun

I don't know how difficult the headliner would be to remove, although I saw it done on 'Wheeler Dealers' and it looked more difficult to handle than to actually remove from the roof. Just make sure you remove all the lights, handles, pillars etc.

A guy on the Volvo forum I was on done his dashboard and erm, center section? (bit where the shifters are LOL), pillars on his 850 T5 in that alacantra stuff and it looked awesome. Really looked classy, he got it done for less than normal though because on of his mates was a trimmer... He said it was pretty easy to keep clean too, although when you touch it you leave a mark just due to the nature of the fabric, rub it the other way and its back to normal.

Re: Carbon Fibre Vinyl...work has begun

Kinda what I was thinking Marty. More prep work than anything else. Really want to get the headliner done, as it's a bit past it's best, plus after seeing the microfibre one on You Tube, it definately looks awesome. The guy had the SRT logo moulded into it as well.

I've never done a Jeep so I can't really say. However, EVERY car I have done, getting the headliner out was a b1tch/c@nt/w#ore! of a job. Once it's out, it's so easy, but getting that s.o.b. out of there will change you in ways you never thought possible. Think you've sworn working on a car? Truckers and bikers will blush at what comes out of your mouth taking that bitch out.

I mean it, it's like there's 2 types of men in this world... those that haven't removed a headliner, and the real men who have! lol

Now watch... you go to pull your out and it's easier than a Essex chick...lol

I just read this again... mate, I wish I was there to help you. I've done molded-in flames, a Ram's head, and a few Chevy logos. It would take me an extra 30 minutes to add a 3d logo to your headliner.


also, a little bad news on the soju. It has been delayed a bit. The hag at the post office wouldn't let me send it, even though I've done it before. I just have to wrangle a Korean friend in there with me to translate. All I can do in Korean is swear, flirt and negotiate price. Good skills all, but not helping in this situation!

The headline is not all that bad, as the big hatch in the back lets you remove it from the vehicle fairly easy. Try it in a Coupe or sedan Just remove all the pillar trim and lights etc... not too bad all in all. I have not done a WK, but I did a ZJ to repair the sunroof, and it went fairly smoothly.

Re: Carbon Fibre Vinyl...work has begun

Damn Ron you need to get yo ass over here for a holiday lol. I'd love a molded headliner. No worries on the soju dude. Remember to pm me your address and I'll get some malt whisky to you.

Kyle - yeah man i hate that hitch, it fawking hideous! Martyp has the same one. I'd personally rip it out if wasn't too much hassle.

Re: Carbon Fibre Vinyl...work has begun

A UK holiday? Twist my arm! I think the Mrs. would like that. What would you want molded into the headliner?

No idea what I'd go for Ron. Jeep logo or maybe Punisher skull, I'd need to give it some serious thought, but I'd definately want something. You know you're more than welcome here dude. There's not much to see apart from some mountains, sheep and a place where they used to burn witches!

Punisher skull all the way! Right up your alley with what we've talked about before. I think I could do that. Might take a few times, but the beauty thing is, if you make a mistake and catch it right away, almost anything is fixable. When we did my cousin's molded flames, we must have started over maybe 3 times with the same fabric, no problems. Now you got me wanting to come out just to do the headliner! I even started sketching some shit out! Bastard! lol

As for not having much to see, not a problem. Good friends, good food, and good liquor are all it takes. Actually what you described sounds like a lot of relaxation... something I desperately need! My wife has only ever seen her home in Thailand and Korea, so I know she'd be stoked. lol, your making me look into tickets!
