Better by Design
from a simple seat repair to a full Retrim, headlining replacement, i have worked on some of the old classic car TRl full Retrim for a night Club owner which sold in America, MG were quite common Hood repairs Vybak (clear PVC) replacement, collapsed seat from ripped diaphams, motor bike seat mostly make a new cover due rips and tears, and the vinyl roofs was quite a big part of the job back in the day
here are a couple of examples of the work
i was asked if could get a tan/gold coloured vinyl to match the original vinyl when removing the lining parts the was never exposed to the elements was white the tan/gold was caused to the tar in the cigarettes
the rear seat had also been re upholstery a couple of months before, the taxi was a on going project for the owner
To see the range of cars i have worked on check out over the years web page
Most headlining used today in car, have a shaped board, with a layer of foam, and a layer of fabric either vinyl or valour, the reason headlining start to drop is that over time the foam disintegrates to a powder, causing the fabric to detach from the board.
Over the year we found that people the drive the car with the widows open are more prone for the headlining to drop sooner, than someone that drive with the air conditioner on, but will eventually drop, one client said he had taken his car to the car wash and then it dropped.
first remove the headlining board, remove all the lose foam and replace with a headlining valour and refit back into your car, as well as the headlining looking unsightly it can be dangerous, from partially covering the back window, to the headlining dropping on your head, causing distraction and annoyance, also a car with a lose headlining has to fix before you can obtain a road worthy certificate.
Most cars we only need the car for half a day, some of the larger vehicle can be longer, one of the first cars we did was a Mitsubishi Sigma back in 1986
