Headlining -fitting.

Discussion in 'Mech Tech' started by GONA66, Jan 12, 2018.

  1. Having purchased some sound deadening material last year to put in the crewcab, I also need to purchase and fit a headlining. At the moment I have just a bare roof, so far I think i'll need 4 bows too ! But I've a few questions chaps.

    1, What else will I need ?
    2, Best place to purchase the headlining ,etc.
    3, Is it a two man job ?
    4, Or would I be better fitting something else ?
    5, Has anybody fitted one and what is the process / is it a d.i.y job ?
    Any feedback on this would be appreciated :thumbsup:.

    I've done a few cabs, not sure what the Doka set up is like originally, could do with some pics!
    It's not particularly difficult just take your time, or do it in ply!

  4. I did a t25 doka. It just clips at the back and stretch to the front behind the screen. Then clips at the sides. I found it a simple job :thumbsup:
    Or is it I'm simple and it's a job :thinking:

    You need to remove the screen, and you need someone to make you a lining , I'm guessing they could do with an original to use as a pattern though!

    You need to cut the strips off the sides and replace with a j section to hold the edges of the ply
     
  17. :eek::eek::eek::eek: CUT ! Did you say ?
    I'll have a think on that and see if I can fathom something out less drastic.

    Actually you can probably leave the original in place and put the new j lower, I think @MorkC68 has a ply one in one of his ?
     
  19. I think before I do anything i'll have a look at some with ply and get a few ideas .
