Update – Retail Customers
Following on from our message in May – we thank you for your on-going patience whilst we worked through our backorders. You will be pleased to know that we have made significant progress – and whilst we are still working through some backorders – we aim to be accepting all new retail orders again from the week commencing the 6th September 2021.
Going forward – to avoid disappointment with your restoration – we recommend that you place your order in plenty of time.
We encourage all new customers who are happy to wait to enquire using our website as follows:
Austin Healey & Triumph TR Customers – browse our extensive product library for details and pricing – selecting the products you are considering using our unique “Build a Quote” system. Once submitted, our experienced sales team can review our choices and get back in touch to discuss the finer details and send you material samples based on your choices.
Jaguar & MGA Customers – find lots of useful information and photos about the products we can offer for your restoration on the individual Model Pages for each marque/model. At the bottom of these model pages, you will find a Contact Form specific to your car – which you can fill in and submit with your restoration requirements – and one of our experienced sales team will formulate a Quote for you to get the ball rolling.
Note that all further information related to your enquiry will be processed and responded to after the 6th September 2021.
We’ve made the process of re-trimming the roof area of your car as simple as possible with our Headlining Kits.
Here, we take a look at the key features that we’ve developed to assist you in trimming this difficult area.
We over-supply material in our headliner kits by cutting our patterns bigger all round. This gives you extra material for grabbing, pulling and applying tension which can then be trimmed off neatly once in position.
Pre-bonded Foam Headlining
Pre-bonded Foam Headlining is a new addition to our range based on feedback from customers and trimmers who found the process of attaching foam then headliner in two separate processes both lengthy and cumbersome. Our pre-bonded version makes the trimming of the headliner area much simpler and the smooth finish foam backing takes easily to contact adhesive glue.
For Jaguar models that have original moulded headliner boards, our Pre-bonded Foam Headlining is a useful material. These boards can be very difficult to remove, and even harder to replace, so this foam-backed material helps to smooth over the surface and make the roof area like new.
We are one of the only companies to offer this unique pre-bonded wool cloth option, and we highly recommend this material being used where applicable to save time and trouble.
Complementary Colour Choice
The choice of colours that we offer across our headlining materials has been specifically selected to complement all of our interior trim materials. To help you decide, you will find our recommended complementary headlining colours for all our leathers and vinyls in our Material and Colour Library.
A few more details that really make us proud of our Headlining Kits…
