The original head liners had a sleeve built into each head liner panel. The short wires on the sides were attached to the sides of the top and the sleeve was slid over the wires on installation and the center section of the sleeve was attached to the wooden bows that were primarily installed to support the roof fabric. Upon installation, you start with the front wooden bow and work your way back, saving the front and rear surround attaching to last. You complete the installation by tucking the sides up under the retaining strips that I hope you saved (they are metal strips with griping teeth that are folded almost 180* under the strips. You can make the wire bows from some heavy wire (3/16" dia) and make your eyes or tack on a small washer.
