Annual Shutdown Period

We are closed for our annual summer shutdown from Monday 14th September 2020, re-opening Monday 21st September. During this period our phones will be switched off and all enquiries (emails/contact forms) will be dealt with in full upon our return to the office. After an extremely busy and stressful 5 months (we remained open the entire time working 7-day shift patterns), the whole John Skinner team is looking forward to a well-deserved break. Please respect this, and thank you for your patience.

In Detail: Our Headlining Kits

We’ve made the process of re-trimming the roof area of your car as simple as possible with our Headlining Kits.

Here, we take a look at the key features that we’ve developed to assist you in trimming this difficult area.

Oversized Patterns

We over-supply material in our headliner kits by cutting our patterns bigger all round. This gives you extra material for grabbing, pulling and applying tension which can then be trimmed off neatly once in position.


Jaguar MK2 Headlining
Our oversized patterns allow for easier positioning and grip. Excess material is then trimmed away for a neat finish on this Jaguar MK2 roof area.

Pre-bonded Foam Headlining

Pre-bonded Foam Headlining is a new addition to our range based on feedback from customers and trimmers who found the process of attaching foam then headliner in two separate processes both lengthy and cumbersome. Our pre-bonded version makes the trimming of the headliner area much simpler and the smooth finish foam backing takes easily to contact adhesive glue.


Pre-Bonded Foam Headlining
Our Pre-Bonded Foam Headlining is a very luxurious material that cuts out the tricky process of first gluing foam to the roof area before applying the headliner material


For Jaguar models that have original moulded headliner boards, our Pre-bonded Foam Headlining is a useful material. These boards can be very difficult to remove, and even harder to replace, so this foam-backed material helps to smooth over the surface and make the roof area like new.

We are one of the only companies to offer this unique pre-bonded wool cloth option, and we highly recommend this material being used where applicable to save time and trouble.

Complementary Colour Choice

The choice of colours that we offer across our headlining materials has been specifically selected to complement all of our interior trim materials. To help you decide, you will find our recommended complementary headlining colours for all our leathers and vinyls in our Material and Colour Library.
