Default 250 SWB Head Linner

Being putting together a plan to build a hard top 250 swb and was wondering what other people have done to cover the underside roof area to hide the fiberglass.

I used the stretchy fabric/carpet stuff for lining vans. It's very forgiving but if you use spray glue, like I did, it will sag down in warm weather. It was easily re-glued though.

Cheers Hurnleft that sounds like a good solution, i should of thought of using this fabric as i have a mate who converts camper vans and use's the same stuff but he has a spray glue that is temperature stable to stop it falling off.

An alternative is to take a splash of thin GRP from inside the shell and upholster that. A few thin "mounting blocks" could be 'glassed in for mounting.

Mines lined in black acoustic carpet using spray heavy duty contact adhesive, direct to the fibreglass.

Default roof insulation

Recently I 'discovered' that an epoxy coating on the ceiling is extremely sticky the next day, when first some extreme dynamat was added, followed by the cbs lead foam sandwich.

For a headlining 'card' Chris made a grp panel off the top of the car and we have cut that in half longitudinally and covered it in foam & lining. It will fit above the strengthening frame. The frame is also covered in foams and the same wool lining, plus a thick foam on the front cross tube. It is all a tight fit, but hopefully, will give good insulation and appearance.

Sealing the doors and window frames is a much greater problem . . . .
