chopped headliner, bows, ect.

Hi guys,
New to this sub-forum cause my project is moving along, with a huge thanks to everyone.
I've learned so much about body work here, I thought I'd try my hand with the interior

The project, a chopped 1950 chevy styleline sedan I rescued.

It's buffed and I'm assembling stuff now, but I would like to start thinking about the interior.

There is about 11" from the last bow pictured to the top of the rear window opening. This is with the bows "vertical".

My concern is the sail panel area.
How would you control that area? Woudn't the headliner just take a bee-line from the sides of the window to the garnish molding (i.e. not in a curved shape)?

I know the 4 door sedans had a BUNCH of bows back there, but with the chop, and tipping the window, everything has changed

Thanks for your time!
