1949 chevy 3100 head liner

i bought a headliner and when i received it it was pakaged in a box rolled . it is still in the rolled shape.it is made of hardboard. Can anyone tell me how do i fit it, i am afraid that i am going to break it or crack it if i bend it to much, it is a two piece. it is already coloured brown on the one side, i thought of putting it in water so it can get soft and then try to fit it and then it will hopefully keep the shape when it is dry, but i am afraid that i am going to damage it.

Can you roll it out on a bench or floor and put some weights on it and leave it at least overnite..those are a kind of cardboard and will flatten out if done so...

Yes, just open it up the best you can without forcing it and let it sit overnight. Even if you don't weight it down, it should return to the correct shape. I had a 4' by 8' sheet of 1/8" high density polyethylene shipped to me all rolled up like that. I opened it up the best I could and let it lay on a concrete floor. It took a day and a half to flatten back out, but it's fine now.

Go Here: Stovebolt.com and search on "headliner."

You'll see all the ways of dealing with this beast from guys that have installed them in '49 - '54 Chevy pickups.

Moistening them is one thing I think I remember most saying they did ... that and the absolute need for *two* pairs of hands ... and many, many complaints about poor fits.

I plan on doing a totally custom headliner in my '54 when it comes back from paint.

Sounds like you are trying to keep the liner stock??? If not I used a RodDoors plastic liner in my 52 and covered it with 1/8" foam and then my covering material. Both contact spray glued on. The headliner snaps in with their heavy duty 3m velcro snap/loop fasteners.

I have two of these trucks ,one has a strip down the center that butts the two pieces together to hold the two pieces straight,, the other has a strip with screws to hold it in place ,,lay them down flat they will take their original shape back after a couple of days,,Do not lay weight on them it will leave depressions in the cardboard ,,.Guess how I know.
.
Good luck with your project ,David.

I do my own interiors professionally. The two fabrics in the '47 Ford are called Atmosphere and Perfection vinyls made by Spradling. Perfection looks like perforated leather. The color is called Cafe. ATM-1814 is the fabric number for Atmosphere, and PFN-1914 is the Perfection number.
