Jeremiah at Classic Aero told me they are planning to produce their RV-7/9 Glareshield liner for the RV-14, but it's not available yet. Abby at Flightline Interiors told me she has their version available with is quite nice. Both are retailing in the $200-$300 range. I decided to buy some Trim-Lok along with some synthetic leather to fashion my own liner. I purchase 60 mm computer fan covers to hold the fabric down. I may include the forward edging idea that Mickey posted. I'll probably glue the fabric to some 1/4" foam and then Velcro the whole thing in place.

Volara Sculpting Foam would work well for the backing foam.

I have made mine from wood, it is both for the safety reason and ecstatic.

I am considering making more if there are interest in it.

Also used McMaster-Carr. Got the part number here on VAF from similar conversations. Part number 8451A22. Looks good, simple, cheap and works. What not to like.
