    Default D2 - Headlining

    Does anybody know somebody who can fix the headlining in my D2. The material has started to pull away from the sponge and is irritating the [email protected] out of me.

    Fixing is out of the question unless you are prepared to paint it. It looks very nice. A couple of us did it already.

    However, I do have a perfect roof lining for sale for a D2. Your are not perhaps coming past Bloem on your holiday? To swop it is not that difficult.

    Hi

    super covers did mine. They did a brilliant job. I had as an added complication severe water damage on the rear part of the roof lining to the extent, that the cardboard preformed shape "deformed" into a sagging mess.

    They took out the complete roof lining, fiberglassed the damaged area and then recovered it with the correct material. The result is absolutely stunning.

    Cost was R3550.00 with the extra work included. This job is worth every cent paid for it.

    Thank you for this post, as this was one of my next posts also.

    My D2 rooflining is also starting to pull away on some places, especially where the sunroof is suppose to be (don't have sunroof).

    Thanx for the reply's.

    I had a good look at George's Disco's roof lining. I is so good that I thought he bought a new one from the stealers.

    I have heard that you can fix it by going over it with a warm, not hot, iron (strykyster). Not sure whether this is true or not.

    I would be surprised!

    The thing is, between the fabric and the moulding is a thin layer of sponge. It is the sponge that becomes brittle.

    at that stage as well the cloth is so fragile that merely touching it makes it fray.
    after all the effort to remove it from the car, it is not worth taking shortcuts

    IMHO, the practical advantages and life span of a painted headlining actually outweighs the fabric version, not to mention the cost.

    please remember to check the sunroof drains are unblocked while the lining is out.
    this is the number 1 reason for water ingress in the discos

    I got a upholsterer to my house,gave him money for the material,but after stripping I realized it was not the material I wanted.He had paid for it and couldn't get a refund as it was cut.
    Anyway,its just that normal vinyl/plastic, crinkle 'leather',but apparently its the best to use as it can stretch around curves etc.
    Think it was done a year ago,cost me R350 for the material and R650 for the upholsterer-if I remember correctly.
    I helped him strip and re-assemble,I'de do it myself if I needed to do it again,was 'easy'
    Took nearly a day though.

    Hi incrediblebob

    looks good!

    As mine is a late model D1 full house ES with heated front screen, heated seats and and and, I naturally wanted it to look original.

    Uncle Bob?

    I see that your sunroof trimmings and mechanisms looks a lot different than any other D1 I have seen before. Could you fill us in?

    Thanks. I knew it sounded too good to be true. Nothing is ever as simple as you hope it will be!

    As far as I have been able to research,210 of these(mine) 3 door,with high compression motors were brought into SA via Australia.
    They were initially made for the Irish market as they(Ireland) had a tax relief scheme for commercial vehicles.

    The first ones were closed in at the rear-no back windows with only the two sets of seats-no folding jump seats.

    From that they made a family version with obviously a lot less electrics-no heated seats,no electric door mirrors,electric sunroofs etc

    The 3 door is supposed to be more 'collectable' as fewer were made and survived their commercial use

    I do personally prefer the look of the 3 door,but access to the back through the front is a bit tight,but I've removed my back seat anyway.
    Saying that,it's not that easy getting in the front either with my lift.
    But it does stop fat chicks from getting in.
