    this thread has inspired me to look at sorting out my Montego Estate headlining

    after reading this through (thanks for a great step-by-step F153JUE) I have just one question, anyone got any thoughts on how to get all the big studs that hold the headlining up in a monty looking new/good ?

      Hi Matt,

      Nope, I used Empire grey. (6.50x3)x1.175=22.91

      Was tempted to use the more expensive cloths though. There are some really nice brown/beige ones available for cars with brownish interiors. Would suit a Mk.1 Oporto Red VP very nicely, for example.

        Well, when I replaced F153's headlining with a new one a while back, all I did was get some fairy liquid and a toothbrush and gently scrub clean the original ones under a running tap.

        You could always nip to a scrapper and get some clean(er) ones - it's very odd how they get caught on clothing and sort of end up in your pocket when you least expect them to....

          thanks, for some reason I thought they were covered in fabric in some way; on checking, I see they arn't - shouldn't be too hard to find a few good ones.

            I'm just about ready to replace my headlining and the last couple of weeks bits of crumbling foam have been appearing on the floor, so I'm guessing mine's disintegrating too ! BTW just bought material from Woollies all the old grey coloured linings seem to have been replaced with one called Oatmeal. Wish me luck, some prayer would be appreciated too !

                    I intend to do some "dummy runs" for glueing material to liner.
