Quick bit of history, when i bought the car, the guy was SUPER TALL! and his head had RUINED the headliner..
From a week of buying the car, 2 years ago, ive been driving round with a grey furry roof as it was easy to staple to the headliner to cover the tattiness.

Ok so today, i woke up.. Drove the 10 miles to a local town to by some leatherette.
I bought 2 meters of White and 1 of Black and a tin of super strength spray adhesive. total of £29

I got home, and STRIPPED the back of the car out.. A Pillars, rear sides, parcel shelf, whole rear seats, the lot.

(THE CRAP ON THE BACK SEAT IS NOT RUST LOL ITS JUST DIRTY.. :p

The I unscrewed the whole headliner and took it out of the boot..

This all went white..
The idea was to have a white leather roof, with a black sunroof, black sun visors and black liner plugs..

Here is basically what it looks like.. Need to put the sun visors in and the light etc..
