PostSubject: painted headliner   Mon May 26, 2014 4:35 pm

so yesterday i pulled the headliner on my se7 D1 with rear air/con... what a PITA. i have done it on a d2 and rrc i owned but this was the worst of the three. got it cleaned up and i started painting it. im still unsure if i event want it back in. originally i was going to keep the truck interior stock. but now im thinking i will pull the rear seats build some low profile drawers, lay down a wood floor with tie downs on top of that so i can strap pelicans and whatever else down. i went through a few cans of white rattle can on the headboard. the truck is alpine white and i don't think i've seen a white headboard. thoughts? i'm not throwing $100 in fiberglassing and bedlining the headboard so basically its either white, black, or none at all.

Traced the old panel onto back of 14 gauge diamond plate, cut slow with jigsaw and a laminate counter top blade

Got to do the fold out shelf still

I can sell my tan vynil jumps with seat belts but only have brackets for pass side, with rear air the drivers side are part of the a/c enclosure

Trust me painted looks bad when doing it but nice installed

Does the D2 work on the D1? I seem to remember reading that the rear tailgate is the only body piece in common between the D1 and D2, but don't quote me on that.

You be mad wicked pimpin'. Now all you need is some Louis Vuitton leather on your seats.

(Really wishing I could find the pics of the eBay auction from ten years ago that was on Dweb back then...if I remember, it was a pink D2 with Lambo doors and a cheap fake LV interior.)

There was some tool on the Land Rover's owners fb page with a non running P38 that had fake LV headliner. Also thought it a bright idea to say that a Land Rover wasn't meant for off roading... lmao dumb ass.
