I did a headliner with the bow setup on a '54 Ford 2-door Ranchwagon, years ago. It went well and wasn't that difficult, believe it or not!

I took the old headliner apart, numbering each piece, and used the pieces as patterns ... cut new pieces out of some nice imitation leather (lightweight naugahyde) ... sewed everything together ... I also numbered the bows, to be sure they went back the same way ... tucked the sides into the moldings, and that was it.

I hope your project is as much fun as mine was, bro'!

Thanks Alan.The only problem with cutting it to match w/the old one is that it is glued to a preformed cardboard piece.The new one has the bows and they need to be cut,drilled and riveted in(according to the instructions).I guess just take it slow and easy.Thanks.Bruce

Found out that Paddock sent the wrong kit.No way to use the one they gave us. <img src="graemlins/boxing.gif" border="0" alt="[boxing]" /> I guess we'll just have to wait again for the correct one. Bruce

That makes more sense, Bruce.

I was wondering why you got a bow deal when, originally, it was a panel!

I'm returning the parts and asking for my $50 back for the 10% discount.The people that work there just needed a job and have no interest or knowledge of the cars they supply for.In general anyway.There's a place in Auburn,Wa.,EvergreenMusclecar.com that is greally good,I don't know why I did't deal with them in the first place.I should have kwown though,The correct headliner is more than twice the price than the one I got.Just as well though,I wasn't looking forward to instaaling the one they sent.Bruce
