Hi, ref. StrangeRover, I had a look at a Jaguar that my guy finished recently, it was back for some attention to the seats, and I have to say that I don't think that it would suit the slightly yellowy tinge that is in the Lightstone leather. I have the original headling still in the vehicle, and it gives off a warmer effect than the Oatmeal that I saw in the Jaguar.

I just don't think that the Oatmeal is the right colour, and I would have to argue that the perfect colour is either Beige or Cashmere.

So, I am going to check with my guy, tomorrow Monday, and see which would be the better of the two- again either Beige or Cashmere !

As the little springs flew out while I was removing the sun blind I didn't see which way up they went. Spring ends down seems logical. Any other views?

Brass springy bits at the top. Or at least they were on the one we did a couple of weeks ago.

I honestly do like the Cashmere colour. I think it looks a bit warmer. For me, the Oatmeal is a bit too grey. When you look at Oatmeal in the daylight it is very much a light grey, whereas Cashmere has a warmer, light yellow shade. I am not sure that I agree with it looking like 20 years of cigarette smoking, but I suppose that, if you fit Oatmeal and then smoke for 20 years, you could get a colour similar to Cashmere !!!!!!!

In fairness, it is all down to the beholder. Does one prefer a grey or a cream/yellow interior ?

Hi, I was looking a post somewhere, last night, about fitting a new headlining, but this morning I can't find it anywhere.

The post gave a blow by blow description, along with pictures, explaining the process. I can't remember whether it was on this forum, or the "Other" [.net] forum. I have looked at a lot of posts, just now, and the only one that I can find is on the "Other" forum but there are no pictures any more, just a triangle with an exclamation mark.

If possible, could someone possibly post a link to the the detailed post ?
