All looks so easy when you read it or look at pics *laughs*

Is this glue like carpet adhesive as I can get that cheap enough?

You need the high temperature stuff (otherwise it'll droop in hot weather). Otherwise yes it is contact adhesive.

I'd HIGHLY recommend doing it outside of the car as any glue overspray or drips will ruin the car interior.

I wouldn't do it in the car either as you will be sky high and everything will become tacky including your nostrils (don't squeeze together or they may stay that way)

We'll see after it's been fiddled with.
Part has to be removed to get the liner off.

Never done one but i assume as its the largest area.

i had to take down all the pillar plastics, seat belt sliders and and rear plastics..roof handles, sunvisors and hooks and finally the interior light fixture to get mine out the r8.

There are some photos of the R8/Concerto production line up on eBay at the moment. These show that all the inner liners were installed before the windscreen and doors went on, and the seats went in. We get to do it the difficult way!

Yes it can, as per Dist's post (for the R8) above.

Something I am very familiar with at the moment as I have both a 25 and a ZR with leaky sunroofs :cursing

I have often considered doing the headlining black in my 220T, along with the plastic header trims, visors etc

The only thing that has really stopped me has been the rarity of this car now, although I guess I could get hold of a spare original set to revert to if I ever wanted to.

Form me, if you do it purposely and it looks right (ie matches where it needs to) i don't think it will detract from the value going aftermarket with the lining. As long as its a similar or better fabric like in my case choosing the suede. Bit of luck it will be at pol so i can show the difference it made.

Got metal fab work to do end of the month on the passenger door so saving heavily.
