My headliner has been sagging for a while now and finally decided to get it done. Shout out to Ricardo @ Ricardo's Auto Upholstery (Newhall, CA.) for doing an excellent job replacing it. Reasonably priced, clean shop, and a nice guy. The material is almost identical to OEM but is much softer.

Note that the velcro is not exposed since I don't use the bracket cover anyway.

$200 for the main headliner and he was able to salvage the trim panel by just putting contact cement.

Nice to know you had a pleasant experience from Ricardo’s. Im in the area and always wanted to stop by to get a quote.

Can you explain the trim panel/contact cement thing?

I'm not sure which Lotus you have, but in the Exige, there is a trim panel (3rd picture above) that covers the mounting bolts by the windshield. The corner of the trim panel started coming off so, instead of replacing the headliner he glued it by using contact cement, which is what he also used to bind the headliner to the top. You can see some of it on the 4th picture, the yellow sprayed stuff is the contact cement.

Yeah, check him out.
