Have you tried stopping by your local hardware store and seeing if they can order you a sheet? Don't know if it would work but may be worth a try?

Sounds like a crappy shop. Time to cut your losses and find another. That's why for 99% of my stuff I just do it myself then i know it's right.

Thanks bud, I think it looks good. I have to give all the credit to co425 though, if it wasn't for this thread I probably would have gone the more expensive route.

Your welcome. Any time I can improve on something and do it cheaper at the same time, I do.

use a piece of that fake wood paneling from trailerhouses it gives it that warm homey feel.

you can do door panel inserts with it too.

Hmmm... So right about now I'm really wishing I hadn't thrown out my old headliner 4+ years ago. Going to be tough to cut out the new one without a pattern!
