What kind of carpet lining have you used? Is it just regular office carpet or van lining one?

I used van carpeting. Stretches multiple directions.
Found a listing on ebay with loads of cans of spray glue.

Awesome mate. This is what I was thinking about. They sell it on ebay £45 for 20 Square meters + spray adhesive. I will go for it soon. Now I need to remove all old lining which is probably original and wasn't replaced since new haha.
Couple of bits left to do with my F4 and hopefuly I will get everything sorted by April next year.
- just finished servicing my lovely 70 HP Johnson EFI
- now need to put new cabin lining
- going to convert my trailer from twin to one axle and need brand new axle fitted. Old ones are shot.
And she will be ready for water.
During a summer time I will do plenty of cosmetic stuff like new windows seals, new hatches, gelcoat polishing etc etc...
I'll start new thread with all stuff I done soon.

Great stuff Adam.
I started mine about 3 years ago, and still so much to do!

Some new pics of cabin progress. Finally finished the inner window surrounds (PVC conduit with faux wood vinyl). And started lining the ceiling/sides with insulation in preparation for the carpeting.

And good call converting the double axle to single - you cannot push a double axle trailer by hand - or at least I cant!

It's coming on a treat, looking really good. Keep the pictures coming!!
I'll be interested to see how you tackle the headlining around the hatch?

When I rebuilt our F4 I replaced the Houdini Hatch altogether, but only once the new lining was in place first.

Hi all
I've attached some pics of the build in its latest form. Lights in ceiling all wired up, just need to add a battery.
Interior upholstery done by Edward Trevor Upholstery in Luton.
Need to sew the curtains next.
