Great job so far. I hope I can do as good with my Chrysler Windsor. Headliner looks great. Was that a kit for the headliner on did you make it from scratch?

I think the headliner was from EZ Interiors, I'll have to check.... it had the roof bow loop;s sewn in, but as long as it was a chopped car, they wouldn't make the window openings, cause of course, they wouldn't be. ''factory'' sizes. I had to ise the location of the loops that they had sewn in the cloth, to determin where the roof brackets were to go, as mine were kind of randomly place when I cut out the side rails of the roof. also each of the roof bows had to be shorten , or lowered, due to the chopped top....toughest part was just getting it tight enough.
