If they do good work, $240's a good price. But since you already the shell out and cleaned, for another $20 or so, you can get some nice foam backed headliner fabric and do it your self. The only tricky part is getting it to drape nicely to all the curves, without any creases. -- OR-- you can just lay it up fast sloppy and figure you'll let the professionals do it when you've got the cast -- either way it will look nicer than bare metal or a bare shell. If you do it yourself, make sure you use the right adhesive. I've seen some people here saying they've used the 3M spray adhesive, but I don't know how long that will hold. When I had mine done, the used a fairly thick stuff that looked sort of like rubber cement. Check where you get the fabric- or even with the upholstry shop you talked to-- tell 'em you just don't have the cash and have to do it yourself- maybe they'll be give you a jar of what they use. Good luck, Geoff
