I just today bought a couple of yards of tan vinyl for my headliner to do this exact job, (I plan to tackle the dash top with the same stuff later). I was gonna re-vinyl the original backing board.
When I removed the old headliner I found that the board is a bit thinner than 1/8" hardboard, and warped to hell, so I'm gonna replace that, I also notice that the board is curved at the edges to follow the contour of the roof.
A couple of questions:
1. Is the 1/8" thick hardboard flexible enough to bend to shape at the edges and be held in place just by the chrome trim? Or should I try to figure out a way to pre-form the hardboard before attaching the vinyl?
2. As it is slightly thicker than the original, was it securely held in place by the trims without gaps?
