    Default Hardtop roof lining

    Has anyone replaced the roof lining in their Series III recently. Any pointers on where the appropriate parts can be sourced? Tips on installation etc. Mine had developed a number of areas that appear to be black mildew and bleach isn't removing it.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I recovered all the parts on a hardtop roof lining and all the other items of trim with the same outer using new material from LR . Unfortunately it is, as far as I know, now not available to buy by the yard. I stripped off the original and replaced with new. The hardest was sewing up the head lining to fit onto the old frame . A domestic sewing machine was up to the job as the material is not too thick. Presumably yours is Oatmeal , a brown fleck on a cream textured background. Are there any shops local to you that do car interiors/trimming who might have similar material

    Regrettably unless u r a seasoned [experienced] upholstery expert the job usually results in a headliner that sags and wrinkles and doesn't match the original. This standard is 4 those who require showroom-quality....5% of owners?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. I know what you mean about leaving things to an experienced upholstery expert. Years ago I attempted to replace the sagging headlining on a RR Classic. It looked great for a month or two then started to droop again in places.
    I'm looking into the replacement linings that a company in Scotland make. LaSalle-trim.co.uk.

    Hello. Here is what I did on my truck. I would recommend to have the top off the truck and do not attempt if weather is too cold. I used this sound deadening product.

    There are usually many sellers of this product on eBay or Amazon.

    For the headliner I bought this.

    I am not an upholstery expert but it was not too difficult to install. Again having the top of the car made the work much easier.
