    Ok so in my e36 atm ive got the M3 black headlining but im thinking about doing a custom instal int he boot using quilted fabric for kind of a luxury look. im also hoping to retrim the parcel shelf and headlining with the quilted fabric to create continuity through the car. which boils down to the question......

    is the headlining easy to remove (i have a sunroof) re-triming is easy and then fit back on??

    also do you reckon it will look good or maybe tacky?? i only thought quilted fabric because alcantra and suede has been done to death.

    thanks

    Headling is easy to remove but suggest two people when putting it back-I will PM someone who has done this and he can tell you his experience..........

    tom im going to be doing mine at somepoint, but not till ive lowered and done the windows, im not sure wether that is before or after santa pod as im in ibiza and i know you go away, drop us a text bud.
    None of the ideas expressed above are actually mine. They are told to me by Luthor and Ferdinand, the five inch tall space aliens who live under my desk. In return for these ideas, I have given them permission to eat any dust bunnies they may find under there.
