On my list was re-doing the headliner for my hard top. Note, my hard top is still in good shape (headliner not sagging yet), but the trim piece where the hardtop meets the windshield was looking bad. This worked out well though because it gave me a chance to test my skills on a smaller piece knowing I'll need to do the whole top eventually.

I re-used the existing material to avoid any mismatch.

Check it out in my video...it's #1 on my list of projects.

Excellent!. Any more info somewhere on just what you did/how on that header trim part?

I did find it a kinda funny "YouTube algorithm bias" that displays Porsche, although the Lotus looks to have slightly more on screen time. Unless you did that... neat vid, Thanks!

If you mean the thumbnail for the video, yeah I did that.

I am planning to do another video just specifically on the header trim! Hopefully in the next week. I just need to edit it.

Thanks! Unusual your headliner is fine, but that part is sagging... I usually read the other way around.

Yeah I guess I'm lucky? The other piece was a good practice run as I'm sure I'm going to have to do the hardtop headliner eventually too.
