first attempt at a head lining

i am currently making a start on my vauxhall victor fd seats and making a start on the bedford cf seats ( originally out of a chevy starcraft mpv) over the winter period , too cold and damp outside to work on the van and car body. whilst doing my seats for the fd i got asked by a friend to make a headling for his ford thames 400e pickup. the only problem being ford actually never made a headling for these trucks so a spring steel frame had to be made to the shape of the cab with the bows silver soldered to the frame

run the new headliner vinyl throught the walking foot sewing machine then the headling material had to be sewed by hand onto the roof bows.

just got to glue the ends on to the frame then fix into the truck ,

once its fitted i will upload finished pics , not sure if this is in the right section. thanks for looking ade.
