headliner

I took my 65 Biscayne to have it upholstered & got it back a few days ago.
He did not do the headliner because there is no place around the rear window to fasten it.

I have searched the web to find out what I am missing but, can not find anything.

What am I missing? is this something I can make? Is there a substitute?

Thanks Don

The rear window needs to come out, the headliner is glued around the edge of the opening and then the window is re-installed. If you're not comfortable doing that, call a glass guy to put it back in.

Dan, the upholstery guy thought there was a metal strip that went around the window. The strip
would have burs in it to hold the headliner........could this be?

Thanks Don

Not that I know of. Is there a rubber seal all the way around the rear window? If so, it's simple to push out the rear window. The hard part is putting it back in. Get a new rubber seal, and have a pro put it back in.

It can't be glued to the sheet metal, there has to be a gasket of some kind.

Dan..The rear window is glued to the metal flange on the exterior of the car.
There is no rubber gasket......this is factory.

I just checked, and there is a trim set that goes around the rear window on the inside of your Biscayne. The headliner isn't held by this trim. If this is like the Chevelle, it is a rubber-type trim that just covers the edge of the window opening that the headliner is glued to. Here it is: 65 66 Chevy SDN Rear Window Interior Windlace Trim Set | eBay
