Headliner and rust

Not sure what to do here. The car is about ready to get blasted but I'm not sure what to do about this area. The roof support frame needs some blasting but the felt padding is between the shin and frame.

Even if you cut it out, how would you put it back.

Not sure just what I am looking at..is that a full sheet of stuff on the roof under the support braces..???

If so there are a couple of strategies to consider..One is to just mask and blast or sand the braces or perhaps the braces can be removed the felt taken down the blasting be done and then reassembled..they had to be able to get that felt in there in the first place..a bit of study may reveal just how "dey do dat"...

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

If I am looking at those supports right they are in the shape of an X , in the center you should see the piviot point. You should be able to tap at one support end toward the side and it should move , just work carfully on all 4 supports a little at a time and they should swing out and drop from the roof edge. Then you can take the felt padding down and be able to replace it after cleanup.

Thanks, I'll give that a try. Figured there had to be a way since it's not welded.
It's not an X, more a t. I took the picture looking through the car. One brace runs front to back, the other side to side. You should be able to see the headliner bows are still in place.

While I've done a lot of work to a lot of cars over the years this is my first frame off resto, so I'm running into things I've never seen or done before.
My philosophy is, "Everyone is ignorant, but only about different things"

I still haven't figured out how to get the rear quarter glass out. My next attempt will be to take the regulator loose and try to remove it whole, but it doesn't look like it will fit through the slot.

If you haven't figured out that rear quarter glass, look at the rear lower pointed area, there should be a lug looking piece that goes through the glass with rubber bushings (attached to the class itself). It runs through the actuator and a clip snaps over the end. Sort of like the old carb linkages, the lug goes into a hole in the clip and it slides into a slot under the head of the lug. Just lift the 'open' edge of the clip and slide it back.
