    equiprx,
    I got the headliner out yesterday, but found difficulty in two area's.
    1) The rear view mirror, could not see how to remove it.
    2) I had to bend the liner to get it through the passenger door and it looked like it was NOT made of cardboard but some thin GRP.
    I realise that there may be a colour difference and will have to order more fabric to cover the sun visors as that is where the difference will be obvious.
    Just wondered if I should go for a leather perforated material to make a real job of it or leave it original???
    3) There were two cables at the rear, one each side which I did not know about or what they were for, any idea's? The one on the drivers side locates into a sheath presumably for insulation purposes?
    Cannot wait for the samples to arrive tomorrow so I can make a start at the weekend.

    I seem to recall a possible mounting cover on the rear-view mirror.
    How did you eventually get the headliner out if you could not get the mirror out?
    Are the cables you found not for courtesy lights inside the sail panels?
    Yes, the backing material is a GRP type product.
    The sun-visors, as far as I know are not able to be recovered.
    For that matter they never did match the original headliner material.
    The headliner was always fabric and the visors either leather or vinyl.
    If you are interested I have a nice set in trim code AWF or AFW.
    Never can remember the correct letter sequence.
    Good luck
    Steve

    Nick, Could you tell me the name of the glue you used please. Hot weather has caused my lining to fall away.
    Thanks, John

    Well, its in but not 100% satisfied with it, all down to me fitting the cloth really, and there is a small crease which is visible. The sun visors are darker, but are showing 22 years of dirt etc. Got enough material to cover them and know just the person to do it, but will have to clean the middle section with the air bag info printed on it.

    After my post above, in case anyone is interested and lives down Plymouth way, I have just had my roof lining renewed by a firm called Autotrim in Ivybridge.
    Fantastic job, quick and more than pleased with the outcome.
    Cost about £340 but I think it was well worth it.

    I have spent hours and hours trying to figure out how Jaguar covered the sun visors.
    There doesn't seem to be a way that the cover can be closed.
    I have a few left over from my restoration projects.
    They are from a 1994 with AWF or AFW. I can never remember.
    Drop me a PM if you have a need for them.

    Just a quick further update, as the headliner has been in a few days now all the small creases have become invisible. The sun visors which were a darker colour have been cleaned with Sonax foam spray and I was amazed at the dirt which came our of them, evidenced by dirty water in my rinse bucket. I sprayed the cleaner onto the visors and worked the foam in with a medium sized sash brush, then let it stand for 10 minutes, then wiped over with a damp microfibre cloth, rinsing every pass with the cloth. When dry they look almost identical in colour/tone, 22 years of grime gone in 20 minutes. Very please with the outcome. Total cost £50 and a few hours of my time
    equiprx, many thanks for the generous offer of the visors but I have got it sorted now as above.
