Our 1996 Toyota Hilus has been treated to a brand new, custom made, ceiling cloth.

Although some may consider it ‘not yet a classic’ parts for the Toyota Hilux are becoming increasingly difficult to source. A ceiling cloth is one of those parts that need to be manufactured from scratch.

We matched the interior as best we could with the resources we had. The existing ceiling cloth, although too far gone to repair, was useful to have as it helped us compare like for like materials and finishes.

A sound deadening mat was applied to the underside of the roof prior to the ceiling cloth being fitted. The interior accessories have all been cleaned up and prepared for refit so now that it is all in position the windows can be refitted and work can commence with the restoration.

Although Bridge Classic Cars have had involvement along the way, the project is actually being completed by father and son which is an amazing story. Being a father and son team here at Bridge Classic Cars it’s moments like this in life that make wonderful memories. We can’t wait to see the final results!
