NICE! I read that thread on the HAMB a few weeks back. Is it as difficult as it seems? I have a 70 GTO Id like to have a hard headliner in. Even though it has a brand new bow rod headliner. Do you got any more pics of how you did yours? Looking good!

I noticed you have some bucket seat foams setting in the back. Whats your plans? I been thinking of making my rear seat seem like your setting in a bucket but at the same time it still being a bench. Maybe adding in some foam bolsters on the sides and near the center to give that bucket seat feel and look.

Thank you UJSLOST !!! and no it wasn't that difficult......got mine to the point you see in one full day....... I just read the post by skipstitch several times and went to the garage and applied it to my car !!! and no, sorry but I didn't take pics as I was doing it, but basically like the post in the hamb I used 1/4 inch luan for the roof, but used my door panel board first to make the pattern as it was a lot easier to keep trimming on until I was happy with the fit, then transferred it to my luan.
There is a cross brace that floats above your suspended headliner and below the actual roof of the car, it runs from front to back and from left to right in the car, I drilled through the luan and bracing and screwed mine to that, make sure to make center marks on both parts, wood and door board, cause once sprayed with glue, when you stick the pieces together, better make sure that's where you want it, no backing up from there......lol.... well without damage to something anyway.....
its best to have a friend to help hold the rear down while you stick the front in place...... my friend was my wife and we did it just fine the first time.
Mine is all leather so I for sure didn't want to have to start over !!! ...lol

As for the seats you see in the rear, I'm doing 4 bucket seats, custom console from my dash between all 4 seats up to the package tray, adding a monitor, all new gauges, and new sound system.

Thanks again and if you do this, just take your time and think it through, you'll do fine...... Eddie

they are out of a 1999 or 2000 oldsmobile bravada ( looks like a chevy blazier ) cost 27.00 bucks each out the door at our local pull-a-part.
54.00 dollars for 2 bucket seats...... cant beat that !!!
Heres a better pic of the 2 seats mounted and the armrest I made before I covered them and the door panels.......
