Hi Dan; I've got a question on the headliner. When you did the parallel lines do you back stitch ? When I've done them the edges get sewn under and hidden.

No, I don't back stitch them. I sew the perimeter line in and then start from the perimeter line and sew across. I leave the thread extra long at each end and then pull the thread through to the back side and tie them off. That makes the whole thing much neater.

You can buy PVC foamboard from a sign shop or a sheet plastic supplier. It comes in 4' by 8' sheets for around $30. It goes by the brand names Komatex, Sintra, CelTec, and Palight. I'm sure there are other brand names , these are just the ones I've come across.

Great thread, Dan.
Very nice job on that headliner.

Also: This is a nice tip, too. Not something I would have thought to do.
