Havent attacked the roof lining as yet. Would say that im going to have to replace everything.
Through GT performance ford im looking at $1200 for seat trim, $800 for door trim, and $200 for roof lining. Then I also have to allow for freight to NZ - dunno how much that will be? Sent them an email havent heard back as yet.
Would this be all i need or there other miscellaneous items that are not included? ie kick panels?
Also forgot - the metal top you guys are talking about - is that the thin chrome strip at the very top of the door card? or am i missing something?
i would be carfull using thinners on the vinyl.
i accidently spilled a couple of drops of thinners on my LH back door trim once and it took the colour straight out. that was on tan trim.
it was instantanious ( or however you spell it
) i nearly cryed because these door trims were still like new .
also some plasics/vinyls will shrink up and wrinkle with thinners.
maybe prepso will work,
