my '64 Fairlane needs a headliner but

I'm being told that the headliner material has to be tucked under the windshield & back glass condoms....?

Does this mean that the front and rear glasses have to be yanked out and will the upholstery shop yank 'em or is that something I'm expected to do ?

Me either. Usually when you remove the molding around the edge you can see where its wrapped.

On some of the early Fords, the are no mouldings. The window rubber is the trim. It is possible to replace the headliner with the glass in the car but you can do a much nicer job with it removed.

Thanks ya'll !

Bob C, that was what the upholstery shops have been telling me.

I do need new windshield rubbers but I know I probably ain't the best qualified to change one .

here is an idea for ya.

get a glass man to come by and take them out for you and when you get the headliner in, have him come put it back in..most glass companies have a roving glassman. ours comes to town twice a week to install and deliver glass..most body/upholstery shops have a glassman..although, we have had to pull the front and back glass on mustangs ourself. I think it's wise to have a glassman do it..really..

I used a glass company in my area when working on my Olds. I had him come out and remove the glass, which he took with him (trashed). Later he came back and put in the new windshield. I didn't have to pay until the job was done. Worked for me!
