I am trying to line the roof interior of my Panel van and have some maisonite for the walls etc to be covered am looking at doing the roof. I would however like a solid roof liner not a fabric one.

I have tried maisonite which on my first attempt wasn't all that successful, splitting about 15 cm from the edges on the curve. Will try again if I get some other ideas.

Does anyone know of a board material that is solid yet flexible enough for a roof lining. I am hoping to insulate one side and vinyl or carpet the outerside. ?

Is it Possible to Shape Maisonite ?

I will be at Alfred's tonight if anyone has any ideas.  Smile  Smile  Smile

Thanks

Big Bear

i used hardboard for my roof lining. covered it one side and just hooked it in the inner gutter rails. 4mm i think it was. some trimmers use similar but a bit thinner i think.

the best stuff to use is 3mm ABS plastic sheeting it is more robust than masonite and other simular products, itís available at Mulford plastics in Ozzie park or there is another supplier in Malaga.

Plastic... Now that is a good idea! Especially if you are going to cover it and don't need a wood look. Good thinking Aussie Trimmer.
