OHC F up

Attempted to install my OHC today but it didn't go as planned. I think i drilled the wiring spots needs to be closer to the windshield i have pics so i can get some help here. Wiring is the easy part for me i'm not concerned about that. Pedro said the hole i cut is too big if it is ill just fill it and suede the entire thing.

It might be specially if you move it forward more.

see how the curve of the OHC goes up and over with the headliner

Instead of MDF use a thin sheet of aluminum.
⅛ or 1/16 thick, it will form better to the headliner.
Cut the OD the same shape as the outside of the OHC but wider and longer.
Most hardware store sell something along this line, maybe thinner if it looks OK, your call.
You can paint the aluminum the same or close to the color of the head liner and after a while it will disappear.

Another thought would be to make a switch box at the end of the console, just big enough to cover the cut out and house some 4 or so switches, maybe a pwr port or something.

A little OT but thank you for this link OP.

http://bmwe32.masscom.net/johan/head...headliner.html

I was going to/thinking of doing this to my mr2 if I could not find the factory grey for the headliner. So you just made me not have to search the net at all. (Favorite the link. Done.) Props to you kind sir.

I have a thought, if the liner is cut too long. Maybe Get a small piece of aluminmum plate or diamond plate and do a small switch pannel.
