    Years ago I got that "Track." From Bayliner...however I had a hella of a time finding the "Wedge " tool ..I screwed the strips to the overhead,and picked up a few tricks along the way...When using the strips you only use vinyl ( no foam backing) in the video they used Sunbrilla fabric....you end up stretching material to track and using tool to force it into track and repeat to next track.,,,, I like the idea of using the Fabric in the video nice color/texture......Hope this helps....Brad

    I looked around a bit because I got curious. Perfectfit.com has the foam and some great fabrics and the store/warehouse in Tukwilla is a supplier to a large section of the automotive and boat shops around here. Sailrite is another source. What I didn’t find is a ready to install foam finish thicker than 1/8”. However, I did find this that might just cause me to get a bit creative on Glauben.

    Stay tuned, because I'm in the middle of doing the same thing for the head. Outdoor sink/cabinet was removed but will be rebuilt eventually.

    By the way, does anyone know where I can get that later style of foam backed vinyl?

    The foam backed vinyls look nice and are probably easier to clean!

    You must have a newer model. Mine is equiped with rat fur. I'd die to upgrade to monkey fur, you lucky rascal! Was that an option that year?

    If you remove it, cleaning up the surface will be a rare treat. You’re going to have to love overhead sanding. It wouldn’t be just the remnants of the monkey fur, there’s the contact cement that has to be removed and the inner fiberglass layer is going to have to be faired. You could do something like Pat did with that plastic sheeting. I used it, well the Bach side, to make interior trim for the trunk of my Nova. It’s easy to work with and could go right over the monkey fur. Making a cardboard template for a pattern will help get the fit right, then you can finish it with some teak edging.
    I went through this when I rebuilt the vanity in the stateroom of our 3270. If you get the old contact cement hot enough, you can smear it off with a wire brush (rolls up into small blobs that fall off). It took a lot of time (and I'd LOATH doing it overhead) but it worked well. I used a heatgun and a large wire brush. Took a few hours but it was faster and cleaner than using acetone or toluen. Afterward, I painted it so its easy to keep clean and dry.

    Just don't get the fiberglass too hot, or it will damage the resin.

    In later years after Monkeys became scarce Bayliner switched to Foam Backed Vinyls the surface must be smooth and you can use contact cement .

    I installed cream colored textured bathroom plastic from Home Depot in the cabin, ceiling seems were finished with teak strips.
    This brightened up the salon and looks great, easy to clean.

    started a topic Monkey Fur/Headliner Carpet

    Monkey Fur/Headliner Carpet

    Has anyone removed the monkey fur from the head and replaced it with another option? I am not a fan of the carpeted ceiling in the head. I was thinking painting a coat of Tuff Coat or some other marine grade paint would look good as a replacement. Has anyone tackled this project before?
