The roofing inside my car is starting to go up **** creek... It's starting to droop all over and coming out of the corners, exposing extremely annoying yellow foamie bits in the air as I'm driving.

How can I fix the problem? What is the price difference between doing it myself and getting it done by someone?

Thanks boys!

It cost me about $200 to get an auto trimmer to replace the roof lining.
I think there are a few threads on here about the DIY approach.

Whereabouts did you get it done? And do they fix it with the same cloth or a completely new one? Is it the same material?

I got mine done at a local auto trimmer/upholsterers. Live just south of Wollongong.
They renew the cloth and foam backing. Looks original.

Yeah that's mad man, I am going to the gong this arvo, got heaps of cousins and mates that live down there. So they quoted you around the $200 mark? Good that they keep it all stock as well, how long ago did you get it done and how long does it last (estimate)?

I'll keep my eyes and ears open then. Does anyone know of a place in Sydney that do the same kinda thing?

I got mine done a few months ago. Dropped the car off first thing in the morning and picked it up at 1pm the same day.
How long does it last?, I assume it depends on the quality of the glue and backing foam used.

Alright no worries man, thanks. Sounds good and a pretty quick job.

Anyone know of a place up in Sydney where I can get this done?
