Brian has been busy in the trim shop with our gold 1981 Rover SD1 Vanden Plas. The original headlining was ill-fitting, and the previous owner had placed studs into it, to create a quilted effect, which wasn’t true to the design. So Brian started by removing the headlining board, took the original fabric off, along with the aforementioned studs, and rubbed all the old foam and glue off that was underneath.

The headlining board itself was repaired with fibreboard, where it had broken at the front. This is now all ready for new headlining fabric to be glued onto it!

Don’t forget, you can enter our competition to win this very car! Here’s a link to our website page with all the information on how to do so!
