Hardtop Interior Liners

Other than the insulation liners that are held in-place by double-stick velcro type materials, has anyone ever seen any other type of upholstered liner installed, that may or may not have a leather, vinyl or other type of covering ?

And does anyone know if there is an adequate amount of clearance inside the double-walled area of the hardtop that surrounds the interior flat portions of the top, that would allow use of short screws to attach liners in those areas ?

Whats wrong with the velcro strips--if you clean and apply adhesive, above 60°F--If you go drilling the hardtop from the inside, you only have about 1/8" free, then you'll drill through !

I've used the velcro for over two years and added Thermal-acoustic insul-and everything is copasetic !





Hotheads Headliners is supposed to be great--google them

I'm always impressed with the interior of JimBox's Jeep thing looks like the cockpit of plane. I swear there is a switch in there labeled countermeasures for sending off flares for air to ground missles.

I'd be interested in seeing a photo of him ejecting.

Drilling area

Ref: you only have about 1/8" free, then you'll drill through !

not referring to directly thru flat top portion, but sideways into the thicker areas that surround the flat portions of the roof. Seems to be void space inside those areas...

Using HushMat between the fitted,covered liner, to be fabricated/installed and the underside of the roof, would make for an excellent sound-deading/insulating liner... !

Why drill something that has a penchant for leaks? These rock, and require no electricity to install, which means you can do it after Dec 21, when the world ends. Peace of mind.

Awesome avatar pic.

However, as a professional photographer, I must say you erred by not placing your rig farther to the right, and including the entirety of the shadows trailing away to the left.

Just a personal aesthetic observation.

Sweet photos.

I'd kill for that scenery about now. Yesterday morning, –12º. Enjoyed the sunrise from inside.

Not sure if it is relevant to the current direction of the thread, but this thread got me looking at the HotHead liners again and they currently have a pretty decent discount for the President's Day holiday.

I was originally going to plop down for them when I got my Jeep in November but they seemed just a bit pricey and that ultimately bumped them to the back of my mods list.

It was kind of hard to resist the 35% off sale going on for this weekend and I just ended up buying them. Thanks a lot OP!

(No I do not work for them, just thought I would let everyone know of their discount in case anyone else was on the fence like I was.)

Where are they for sale? eBay is currently $189+ shipping $20. If cheaper I would buy them. It includes side panels...

This is something like what I had discussed with interior shop, except our concept would fill the entire space and be attached to sloping side of the opening to the flat top area, where these attach to/// I may look into these, but I would prefer to fill the entire space...Maybe I should consider the double-stick option for my panels..... Thanks for the inputs....

FYI
On ebay just sold - for 2dr jk includes rear windows sold for $220 +$10 shipping. I think on their website combining both comes out to approx. $290 with their presidents day discount.

My aesthetic is different. I would have placed the Jeep further to the left (I have no immediate comment about the shadow). I hate to see a person/vehicle with the appearance of moving OUT of a frame, but rather moving INTO it. (We're both employing the rule-of-thirds, but preferring a different third!). Ooooooh even better would be a panned, long-exposure shot of a moving Jeep; or better yet, a low-light, long-exposure, rear-curtain sync flash shot of a moving Jeep!!! That would be cool!
(sorry about the highjack)

Thanks for the heads-up! Ordered the rear side window panel kit at the sale price to finish off my Hotheads install.

I've had the Hotheads 3M adhesive headliners in for 6 months and love them!

Well, couldn't do any pan blurs, as I was alone and as for the frame comment, generally I agree, just depends on the subject. This was my exception. Also, the pics I posted were from my iPhone, I took real photos with my 50D.
