As the title states - trying to see what the sheetmetal looks like without the headliner in.... searched but little came up (lots of discussions, few photos).

Is the roof double layered steel with a gap between? As in - if you were to tap on the steel on the inside is that the same panel directly on the top exterior?
I have rust along the gutters but it seems theres another layer beneath... essentially trying to determine if I can cut out and weld in a patch without removing the headliner... obviously a stray spark could catch the insulation/glue on fire which is the last thing I want...
We had an 87 suburban with the liner removed and it was a single thin sheet.
Our headliner is in excellent shape and I'd rather not pull (destroy) it... but the roof work has to be done...

After applying the Lizard Skin, paint and X matt, did you then replace the headliner?The roof is a single layer. It rolls over and forms a J for the lack of a better term. The gutter itself on the outside is also a J. Moisture from condensation runs down the inside of the roof, sits inside in this J and has nowhere to go. By the time you see bubbles on the outside you are not going to like what you find.
Oh yeah, that roof glue is nasty stuff. I tried some serious paint remover and it did not touch it. I ended up going at it with a wire wheel. PITA!
Looks like this with two layers of Lizard Skin, one coat gloss black paint and a layer of X matt.
X matt will not stick to raw Lizard Skin
Link to the source for the net, please.Here is mine. The before, during and after the headliner was removed....
The best addition I did was the roof net - great for pillows / blankets / throw rugs etc on long drives...
Mine was replaced with insurance due to my small fire... The replacement required the front window out, but the rear side windows remained in. The replacement isn’t original Toyota and has joins at the top of each of the pillars - I don’t care as it certainly isn’t a concourse restored car (far from it!!!)
