Re: New headlining and fitting problems

Hello Paul, Without a doubt, the best material for the headlining is supplied by BAS. Its my understanding that the material is exclusive to BAS. John Skinner also supplies it, but sources it from BAS. The backing is approximately 5mm thick, is rather dense with a texture similar to Tofu, but firm t...

Re: floor repair

Hello yev,
Its rather unlikely that you will find extreme front off cuts, as this is the most rust prone area and therefore, the part of a new floor most likely to be consumed.
