    Hi, I'm converting a tranny minibus and the headlining is in need of a facelift, can anyone recommend a good place to buy felt from ?

    I bought mine from AS. I did the roof, walls and doors in my van with the Stretch liner.
    It went into all the grooves strange shapes and bumps.

    One bit of advice is that the glue is just as important as the liner used. I used the High Temp aerosols from the same company and after 2 years it started coming away in places. I then bought the AXT290 which worked a treat although is a bit messy to apply as it is quite thick. However I applied it for example to the roof and to the material, let it site for 30 seconds then applied the liner. Absolutely no movement since.

    I have just looked at Terry's recommendation and it looks like much better value. Although I can't vouch for the glue.
