    Hello mate

    I also have mine to do but someone on here changed there's from gray to black and there were a few tips on how to do it, I have a hatchback Vec so for me I see it being pretty straight forward as with the signum, I do think it's a 2 man job

    I will watch this thread to see what advise is offered then stop putting it off and just change it lol

    I can only go on what ive done on my Vec and had about 3 quarters of it down to add roof looms and tbh its quite easy to remove the lining. Unscrew all 4 grab handles and the sun visors and front light unit and alarm sensor. I started at the back and gently pulled the lining away from the roof as its held on by 3 or 4 pieces of Velcro, then went down the passenger side removing it from the C,B and A pillar rubbers and mouldings. Its quite easy untill you get to putting in those little clips that hold the visor back up, complete PITA. Plasma knows a good tip for putting them back up though.
