I have a vertical panel bar down the center of my 90 sides, is this an issue with the side trims?

This is not an issue if you purchase our 90 Utility side trims

Some models have this bar, differing depths.  So it depends on the depth of the bar.

This is only an issue if you purchase our 90 Blank Side Trims, this bar can be removed, which a lot of customers do it is only there to stop the panel vibrating  Other customers cut a notch out of the bar to allow the side trim to fit.

Will my sun visors still fit flush to the roof with a radio housing in place?

  • No, your sun visors will only go up as far as the Radio Housing, due to the original headlining/sun visors not allowing space for a Radio Housing to be in place or fitted.
  • This does not impede on your vision in any way, they still sit above your eye line, it is only a slight aesthetic issue.

 

So please consider this before you buy the Radio/Speaker Version Headlining

Alternative options to allow your sun visors to sit flush to the roof with a Radio Housing in place :-

  • You can modify your existing sun visors by cutting them down in size, guidelines are available
  • You can replace your original sun visors with a shorter set

 

What size speakers do the speaker housings take?

How do the add on speaker pods attach to the headlining?

  • Add On Speaker Pods are pre drilled for small screws to attach to the headlining.

PLEASE BE ADVISED THAT THESE PODS ARE DESIGNED FOR OUR PRODUCTS AND WILL CAUSE SOME ISSUES IF THEY ARE FITTED TO AN ORIGINAL LAND ROVER HEADLINER  issues being, that the original headliner is not strong enough to hold the self tapping screws which hold the pods to the headlining, so they would need extra support on the back side of the headliner to attach to, the pods may also need some sanding to fit the contour of the original headliner

 


Sunroof/Alpine Lights/Side Windows

 

Do you cut out for the sunroof and alpine lights?

  • No, we cannot do this, as too many Land Rovers have after factory fitted sunroofs and alpine lights, so therefore you would have to cut these out yourself.
  • The easiest way of doing this, is to take out your sunroof/alpine windows, put your headlining temporarily in place, and mark through the holes.
  • ALWAYS UNDERCUT, and sand gently to the final finish.

 

Do you cut out for the windows on the 90 side trims?

  • No, we cannot do this, as so many windows are after factory fitted.
  • The easiest way of doing this, is to mark and measure, the hole needs to be flush with the metal window interior face, so all you see is the window, and no metalwork.
  • ALWAYS UNDERCUT, and sand gently to the final finish.

 

Do you supply a trim for the alpine window? 

  • Yes, we supply Alpine Trims to finish off your alpine windows.

 

Do you supply the sunroof rubber trim?

  • No, we do not supply the rubber trims for your sunroof, you will have to re-use the original rubber trim.

 


Fitting Tips

 

  • Attach sun visors, additional interior lights etc… before fitting the headlining
  • Use drive rivets only for final and permanent fitment
  • Fitting is made easier, with a second pair of hands
  • Headlinings can be drilled, filed, sawn using metal work tools
  • DO NOT RUB HANDS OVER REAR SURFACE AREA OF LINING
  • PLEASE USE A MASK TO AVOID INHALING DUST
