From Germany, hand made to order, got it through Jake Hilling on facebook,he uses a fella in Germany for all the bug headliners he puts in the bugs he restores. Well pleased with it,fitted well & worked out cheaper than a TMI one. I went for beige cloth type

Bummer! Wasn't aware of Jake Hilling. I just ordered a TMI one form the US. Cant believe how expensive they are! You've done a sterling job ;)

I looked at the TMI ones but thought by time it got here it would be a lot of money so i stuck a post up on facebook asking if anyone knew where i could get one & Jake commented he was ordering a couple from Germany & if i wanted one he would order 3.
Don't know how much the TMI ones work out in total but mine was £420 ,a lot for a 6 pieces of cloth but fitted perfect couldn't fault it.

Ok I don't feel quite so bad now as mine was £438 through Heritage. As you say it's a lot of dollar for a small amount of material!

That's awesome dude :)

I assume behind the woolcloth headliner is the same felt as on the roof section? I so prefer the felt compared to foam. Gives a much softer finish to the liner over the top of it compared to foam.

Was it proper wool cloth too. If so then it's not something of mass use compared to vinyl so hence the price but either way it turned out lovely.
Oh, and the fibre board strip around the edge of the centre section is a somewhat specialty item these days too. I'd have to buy a 100M roll if I was to make my own.

Top job though man :)
