You can buy new sail panel boards for your LeMans. They are usually covered with the same fabric that the headliner is made from, but some places sell the bare boards. There should be holes in the panel to accommodate panel clips which hold the sail panels in place. Normally, the sail panel is not closed in the back next to the rear window, but is closed on the other three sides. The rear of the panel is either glued or stapled around the edge of the rear window, and then covered with the trim ring that goes around the rear window.

Here are some old sail panels from a 67 Chevelle.

No one lives forever, the trick is creating something that will.
