Headliners - NEED HELP

Post

Back to the top
Hi Guys, I bought a 1980 MK1 Jetta GLI Coupe (tin-sunroof model) and due to neglect from the previous owner sunroof seal perished and ruined the headlining. So car had no headlining when i bought it.

I am at the point where i can put in a new headlining in but information regarding MK1 jetta coupe's is next to impossible to find, so i have a few questions that i hope you more experienced MK1 VW heads can help me with :)
1. Obvious question, will a MK1 Golf sunroof model headlining fit a Jetta Coupe? - if some trimming for the C-pillar is required i don't mind
2. Headliner tensioning rod + end caps, does anyone know off the top of their heads how many i need for a sunroof model? - I'm assuming that it's most likely the same as the Golf
3. Does anyone know where i can purchase a good quality headling? - As with everything, there is a lot of rubbish out there and would prefer not to have to change one again a couple of years down the line :)

I would very much appreciate if you guys could help me out here as trying to research this has been doing my head in for some time.
Thanks,
Mairtin

Can’t answer the questions directly but Newtown commercials are the people to speak to. Excellent knowledge and really helpful. I brought mine from then and it looks great. They sell lots of accessories also so may be able to buy everything from one place.

A golf headliner will not fit a Jetta

You will need six headliner rods

Your best bet is to buy a length of the headliner material you want (there are a few who specialise in classic car material) and get a trimmer to fit it

If you need rods, get in touch as I may have some for sale
