hi guys , just some updated pics of the headlining for my mates ford thames 400e
the frame was tried in the recess inside the top of the cab ,

this is the recess it had to spring into place.



the frame was slightly too short so i had to add more steel to the bows , simply done , just cut and sleeved at the right places ,the frame was then recovered with the expanded vinyl , unfortunalty i dont have a hog ring pliers or i would have taken dans advice and hog ringed the listings to the bows , just been laid off at work so moneys tight at the moment.
this is how it looked with the vinyl pulled up around the frame.


my mate andy has fitted the headlining temporary for the uk classic car show and he said that it held into place on the drive home too. once its fitted in permenant i will post some finished pics. ade
