Does anyone have an old GTV headliner that I could borrow for a pattern for the recessed area? I took the old headliner out thinking that the one I bought from Centerline had the area for the recess precut. That was the case with the last headliner I got from them; and yes, I did ask if this one was the same and was told yes - but it was not.

The installer that is coming to my house asked if I kept the old one but it was rough and got ripped up as it was removed.

Thanks!
John

There really is no magic to this. Take the existing recess support ring and use as the pattern to add an extra 2-3" all around. The kit I bought from Classic Alfa did not have the recessed portion sewn onto it either......I ended up simply gluing the vynil directly to 1/8" landau foam which was in turn glued directly to the roof itself. I preferred to glue it this way so that the fabric does not flop around or hang down over time and especially on hot days when the vinyl will expand.

It's the cutting of the main piece I am most concerned about. It would be nice to have a pattern.
Thank you!
