holes in interior walls

I have several holes in the roof of my interior vinyl wall from an air conditioner put in by the prior owner. I would like to patch the holes, but I dont know how or what to use. Can somebody please help. Thanks.

If it's vinyl over aluminum, you could rivet another panel of color-matched aluminum over it. If vinyl over wood, just screw another sheet of matching wood over the hole.

Worst case, do like apartment dwellers and hang a picture over it.

I'd install an aluminum patch and then install a "hull liner" headliner. Its a good looking heavy, cleanable, material used on Airstreams and other high end RVs and boats. Use the best adhesive and it won't fall. Do not use a foam back liner as a substitute material...it will fail.

rivet an aluminum patch over the hole, making sure you get really tight to the skin. next time you re paint your AS use a thick latex paint and a textured roller

Do you think this would work on the curved headliner over the front window? I have a crack in mine and need something to cover it as I don't want to even try to get at the back of it.
