The first attempt at trimming the headliner was a fail  :sad1:.

Not enough stretch to get it tucked in where the a pillars are.




What adhesive are you using dazza?

I used some trim fix high temp spray but thats finished now. Going to use some brush on contact adhesive for the second attempt.

Is the spray not good enough?
I ask because I'd rather have all info before I tackle this

The spray was fine the material was not stretchy enough.

Not been on here in a while. The retrim of the headliner is holding up well considering the car is never parked in the garage these days. But all the door card trim has now failed. Any tips for doing this? I did search  :ashamed:

As the golf is the wifes daily  :sick: I dont work on it as much as i used to.

But all of the doorcards failed.

I've now re-trimmed them with the material i had left over from doing the headliner.

Cant complain trying to make the best of the crazy world we now live in. Luckily i have a very long list of things around the house to fix which is keeping me busy.

I hope you all are keeping safe and not going too  :rolleye:

The wife mentioned a knock while braking.

That should be it then  :thinking:  :ashamed:

Is there anything else i should be changing with the lower control arm bushes?

I'm wondering why you are not upgrading it to leather card doors as it will match the seats.

BTW I'm from Tarragona haha
