Just wondered what car that ws pictured,

looked a bit aston-martin ish.

Helped me, my 2005 Mini Coopers headliner cloth started to sag, flapping in the breeze and almost making it impossible to see out the back. Do you know of any aluminium acked foam material - i want to add some more roof insulation, without making it too thick. The original flocked material is Ok, cleaned, washed and check the dimensions, so i just need the foam backing.
