It did come out quite nice though.

I guess all Pantera owners think the same, I did the same thing, in the middle of a south FL summer, and your right, almost had to be carried out of the boat.

I have a 90 Top Gun and it had some god awful seafoam green carpet in it when I bought it and the headliner looked nasty and had traces of DNA on it.... I pulled all the floor and side carpet as well as the headliner. I have replaced all the carpet and it was full weekend and some change to do. My headliner material just came in and that is on the list for next weekend...cant wait to get into that one.

As far as removing the old carpet I just started pulling it and when it was out I hand sanded it all with 80 block. I tried a D.A. sander and It made too much dust/mess in the air for me.... Just get into it and find you grove.

I tore the carpet off the hull sides in my cockpit and replaced it with Nautolex vinyl. Looks much more tidy and modern. I prefer to leave the carpet on the cabin sides because I'm thinking it's more cozy and cuts down the noise.

The biggest problem with replacing headliners is something called gravity. Checkmates - like may boats - are built with the deck upside down and the headliner installed before the deck goes on. When you do it like that, gravity works in your favor. If your boat is built with the hull and deck glassed together - or you're replacing it on a completed boat - getting the headliner in is a bit more difficult. Same darn problem - gravity. I've tried to reason with Father Physics on this one, but he just won't budge.

And as for the solvents in the cleaners and adhesives, cosmic man!

Default recip blade

I am in the same situation with the headliner dilemma. I might have seen a reciprocating saw blade at Home Depot that was flat and sharp across the front surface, similar to a putty knife. The flat surface is perpendicular to the front of the saw. It is narrow and designed for scraping paint and glue off of a surface. It might work...
