It's pretty easy to do yourself.

-Remove all roof accessories (mirror, grab handles, sun visors), remove cover and globe from interior light and unscrew it.
-Unclip the top clip of the A-pillar trim
-pull down the top edge of door seals at all four doors
-Unclip the b pillar by flipping up the cover over the seatbelt mounting point and unbolting the seatbelt.
-Un-tuck the headlining from the A and B pillars - don't touch the C pillars or any trim near the back as you might break it!
-Slide the entire roof lining forward and down, making sure you push the interior light through the hole in the lining as you go.
-Roll/bent the cover a little and remove it through the drivers side rear door.
-relocate velcro clips back onto the roof if they get pulled off with the lining.

Installation is the same process backwards :p Just be very careful with any plastic trims as they were very brittle on a '93 VR that i did.

VZ GTO. VS LS1.
Willing to travel 2 hours down to South Nowra??? Gary Bowen Upholstery will do it there. Not sure on fitting cost though as I fitted mine myself. He charged me about $120 from memory to retrim mine. Top job too and he's easy to deal with.
Maybe ring a few upholsterer's in sydney area?

Laziness, Lack of time to do it due to work, Disability, Doesnt feel up to the job.

Just because it can be done yourself, Doesnt mean everyone can do it. Like changing an oil filter is a piss easy job, But i wouldnt do it on our MY08 Golf TDI cause i might #### it up... And thats a big repair bill compared to ####ing it up on my buick and using todays coffee money to buy a replacement motor

yeah i understand that,but there's not much that could go wrong doing a rooflining.
i wasn't having a go at him about it just asked thats all.
the proper roofling material is about $70 for the job,probably cheaper for the auto trimmer.
and it only usually takes an hour/hour and a half to do the whole job.
so through a trimmer i would say around the $150 mark.
anyone else had atrimmer do theirs?
if so what did it cost?

The reason I'm getting a pro to fit it, is because I don't want to butcher it

I already ripped a wire out of the interior light while removing the lining :(
