37 Ford

Can anyone one tell me what holds the headliner in around the rear window on a 37 Ford Sedan. They didn't use glue back then, so I'm assuming I'm missing a part. Mistake + Leather = $$$

If I'm not mistaken they either were glued around the metal lip for the window & the rubber gasket for the glass would then hold it (head liner) into place OR some cars also use 1/4 thick - 1/2 inch wide strips of tight cardboard type material then nail or tack the headliner around the windows & then the trim would hide it.....joe

Hauler, I think my 36 headliner installs the same as your 37. Coat the surface that outlines the window casing with a 3M glue and affix the weadliner to it with a very light stretch (glass is installed before this). When glue is dry, put window garnish moulding in and it will provide final tightening of the headliner.

Mine was tacked in place no glue. The wood was all roted so I had to make new wood. Used a wooden coat hanger...you know the ones that look like they are walnut?...cut it too size and you must predrill the wood cause it too hard to pound in any tacks.

On the sides over the windows I used some screws that were there when I started and when you install the window moldings they tend to tighten up the headliner. Along the door posts I replaced the old wood with anything that would fit. The real problem is the front although the header is a seperate piece, it is difficult to get it back and looking nice..it also has a big hole for a raido speaker. I used some household rug padding ..cust a piece to fit and wrapped the thing in uphostery material tucking in the ends useing a household table knife you know those silver ones.
