Commodore rooflining dilema

hi all,

i have 97 vs executive and as you may know a common flaw, or characteristic if you may call it of rooflining in the vs's are that they tend to sag, resembling a chesterfield couch roof, now this look is particulary annoying to the point where your driving and the rooflining acts as a pillow on the top of your head.

Now iv'e been advised to buy a glue adhiesive and spray back on the lining, but this is a very fidily process, iv'e called up countless wreckers and no luck, even tryed sourcing vr lining but no lucl either, does anyone have any suggestions, i was also curious if vn, vp rooflining would fit into my vs ?

Well thanks anyway guys, all suggestions welcome .

Regards
sle3per

Any auto trimmer should be able to fix it also.

Mate auto trimmers specialise in interiors, a roof lining is part of a interior, they can do anything from stock to wild. Just give one a call and talk to them about your options.
