You could, in theory, glue the vinyl over the tweed. Two problems might arise. One, if you are using a thin vinyl, the texture of the tweed might show in the vinyl. And two, the tweed will REALLY soak up the glue, so you would be wasting a lot of glue.

What would be the correct way to do this? To remove the tweed and recover the panel with vinyl.

How would I get the tweed off the foam without ruining the foam shape. My panels have been shaped before the tweed was glued on.
Thanks

Oh, i see what you mean. There really wouldnt be a good way to get the tweed off of the foam. Try heating it with a heat gun, sometimes at the shop if something gets glued where we dont want it, we heat it up to release the glue, but generally this only works before the glue has cured.

I assume the interior was done professionally at an upholstery shop, if so an industrial strength glue probably was used and will be damn near impossible to get off.
