Hi all I see a lot of people remove headlining / carpets... has anyone installed new ones ? I have seen kits overseas but nothing for UK. Have seen a roll of carpet on flea bay quite cheap just wondering difficulty if anyone has done it before ? Would quite like a black headlining B)

I know it's a personal thing but dark and black head linings give me a headache.

Both the carpet and the headlining in the Jimny are moulded into shaped (they are in mine), so anything done to change them is going to require a custom made part or a bit of imagination.
The carpet could be replaced with roll carpet but you are going to have to use fragments cut to fit individual locations, some glued into place. It's quite a common thing done in the classic car world and some specialist do offer this servive.
The headlining a bit more difficult as it's moulded shape is self supporting, so you can't easily use a roll material. It could be possible to remove and change it's colour using spray paint or fabric dye, but you are going to have to try a small area first. Alternatively it could be possible to use spray adhesive to bond a new thin material over the surface.
Not 100% the answer you are looking for, but just a few ideas.
Good luck
Mike

Thanks Mike.

Looks like previous owner got it muddy and has scrubbed headliner to bits. It’s clean just looks battered and sagging a little bit. I did wonder if there was a board in there. Thinking if I do pull it and by some miracle get the lining in one piece might be able to use as a template.

I’ll do some thinking but will try and document if I do go ahead

If you remove the roof liner, please provide us with some pictures of the naked roof from inside the cabin, as well as pictures of the upper side of the roof liner (the side which was facing the roof).

The roof liner is a sort of compressed cardboard backing
and is held in place with a large squiggle formation of type of silicone
If you just pull it down it will crease.I suggest using something like a steel metre rule to cut through the adhesive
slow and steady :)
