Is there anybody there?

 

Sorry - must have missed this post!

Do you have a local upholsterer? They often work in vinyl or the like, and might be able to advise on the best replacement. You could enquire of this lot:

You've already found Martrim.

This lot seem to be more cloth than vinyl:

Try a search for just 'headliner' or 'headlining' on eBay, there are quite a few companies and one of them may have the material you need:

The plastic / vinyl used on Minis seems quite close too, but a lot of the cars from that era used the same kind of material. You may find the same pattern listed under another marque of car.

I note your location as South Somerset?. Have you thought of Thornfalcon Garage?, just outside Taunton?. Junc, 358/378. They (used) to specialise in Classics, and did some restorations (In the 90`s).

P.s. Back then there was a guy in Yeovil. Who restored American stuff. I had parts off him, for my Chevy; based Camper.?

Guest what I found today tucked away nice and safe in a box in the attic rooms.

 

a Herald coupe headlining that I bought from John kippling back on 23/08/94 and it cost £41

but it is the  longhorn type, not the right one for my coupe, so I'll have to use it as a template for the right matirial when it arrivesP1060551.thumb.JPG.3561b96034ac9dae420e2b115cd79728.JPG

I think that's the point of Lockdown, to help us use up old stocks and thereby regenerate the economy by buying more new stuff when it all gets back to normal. 

Wonder what the headlining is worth today?

I did see one on flebay £125, I think it was newton commercials end of line sort of thing as I don't see them listed in their cataloge. but there hasn't been any listed for a while now.

but I would think they would have the patern so could make one up if needed.
