my new interior home job

So, last week i committed myself to redoing my head liner since mine was gone.

Went down to the local shops to pick up the materials i needed and got carried away.

Now its roof liner, sun roof panel, a pillars, b pillars and parcel shelf.

I now am doing everything in black vinyl.

I was quoted $600 aud to redo just the headliner at a local shop, so far i have spent:

2 cans of glue $ 40 ( i am le retarded )
3 meters of vinyl: $ 65
new razor blade: $5
can of vinyl paint: $15
plus using tools and stuff I had in the garage.

so for a total of $125 approx i have recovered all/most of my interior panels.

This is the first time I have attempted doing any sort of upholstery so be easy on me =]

The rear parcel shelf has a bubble or two yes i know but that will be fixed tonight, when i can actually warm up the garage so the glue works.

ps only glued my hands together once
