47 Ford 5 window coupe "hard" headliner

I want to put a "hard" headliner in a 47 Ford 5 window coupe. I know how to do the headliner, but there are no mounting points, either wooden or metal on the inside roof. I need to make mounting points for the luan plywood base so I can screw the plywood to the wooden supports. I will have to make them out of wood, and my question is: What glue or epoxy or contact adhesive should I use and how would it be applied? Any help you guys can give would be appreciated.
Also.......does this car have a metal trim ring that goes around the rear window? This car has trim rings for the windshield, front and rear windows, but none for the rear window, is this how it was originally?

Thanks again.

Dan

47 Ford "hard" headliner

Can't help on the headliner, but as for a trim ring for the rear window, no,just the rubber. I have seen maybe 2 Fords that had a stainless trim piece that fit into the rubber on the outside of the rear window, and the seal is available in a grooved / non grooved configuration. But, Glen Marions Ford parts told me it was a Mercury trim piece,not a Ford original. Hope this helps.

Be sure you use a high temp adhesive for the wood and what ever upholstery you apply or you will have sagging problems after the first sit in the sun. 3M makes a spray on adhesive for the upholstery and I would think epoxy for the wood should be good I would back up the epoxy on the wood with screws just to be sure.

Thanks for the help. There won't be any problem with the fabric sagging because it will be stapled up in about four places to complete the look I'm going for. I will post a picture when it's done. Thanks again for the help.
