My silver cloth headliner is sagging, and if I'm going to the trouble of taking it out to fix, figure I might as well put in a leather one.
Prefer black to match, but I'd consider anything else that might be complimentary.
Located in Australia, prepared to pay reasonable freight, obviously.
Any decent wreckers in your area worth approaching?

Have a bespoke Alcantara headlining made by a local trimmer. The leather headlining, as beautiful as it is, often creaks as the weight pushes down on the B/C pillars.

My wife hated going in my GS with the leather headliner because it reminded her of her uni days taking the 142 down Wilmslow road from how much it creaked - still looked beautiful though!

Hi Marbles,
I did mine in Australia too.
Bought the leather roof from GT Spares in Adelaide having rung them to see if they had any, as none were advertised anywhere.
They said yes but hadn't listed it yet. Paid $1,065 including freight to Canberra. It was the wrong colour, so I re-dyed it myself using Leatherique products and custom dye service.
Fitting requires removing the boot lining to get to the back parcel shelf and removing back seat and side trims around the glass.
I found a slight variation in the hole to fit the light cluster near the interior mirror. It was a really tight fit, but got there in the end.
I bought new clips from Eurospares to re-attach the side trims and applied a roll of one sided sticky tape with foam to stops squeaks.
