How to recover the A pillars on a Jaguar XK8  |  More info

The upholstery on the A-pillars of most Jaguar XK8s gets wrinkled and dirty over time. It's glued onto a plastic piece which holds everything in place. The foam padding behind the fabric breaks down and leaves the fabric looking wrinkled. It's easy to replace, however. I bought the fabric, which is headliner fabric, from Joanne's Fabric and Crafts. I think it was only about $10 per yard, and I only used about a quarter yard. Buy a half yard, just in case you mess up.

Also, the spray adhesive I used is 3M type 77. You can buy it at Lowes, Home Depot, Walmart...
