Your ceiling? Did you use the headliner bows or did you do something different? Carpeting? Did you cut it yourself, house carpeting? Just curious. What color is the outside of the vehicle going to be? I plan to have my 38 street leagl this spring too. Can't wait till spring!!!n Yeah, baby!
The headliner is a 39 Hudson replacement from Cantor, came with matching windlace and other trim parts. I used the original bows, it was well made and easy to fit. Although the tacking strips were still there, I used spray adhesive to hold the lining in place, the glues today are far superior to tacks, which can rip your liner under tension, which increases under natural shrinkage.
The carpet is just cheap home stuff, rough short wiry texture with moulded rubber backing, something like Hotel Contract flooring, a few $ per yard.
The diamond interior lights you see came from a BMW.
The Chocolate brown seats came from a 1981 Chrysler New Yorker (fitted perfectly) the same donor also gave up a 318/ box - driveshaft - rear axle - front suspension - engine wiring loom, Tilt Steering Column and many other bits and pieces.
The exterior colour will be Ivory.
I will finish the interior this winter and be ready for the final paint coat in the spring when the temperature comes up again.
