Looking damn good! Did you just glue it on? What are you going to do around the screw holes?

 Cheers BriC,  you can buy high temp upholstery glue, which is the best stuff. I've kept all the original screw hole caps I took off.. so will re-use them when it goes back on  8)


Would you be able to point me in the right direction for such a glue?

I want to keep the interior standard on mine but on the rear quarter panels the fabric has come away and started to sag.

Yes.. I'm not literally going to buy everything you've bought, but I like the choices of colours and materials you have used :)

I got advice from a trimmer...  and used this..  a very strong hold.

Thankyou.  8)

Question is, will i be able to remove the carpeting from the rear cards without it stretching out of shape or tearing. Might as well give it a go, there not that great anyway.

 Sorry, no idea,  I've never had to remove the trim on those panels.  I would have thought it would be possible, but would prob tear if you force them as they have been on there for a few decades and the material will also be less stretchy... and more brittle to pull away.
