Either glue it down, or create something to staple or glue the windlace to. You can cut strips of waterproof panel board or PVC foamboard that fit the area in question, and then glue or staple the windlace to the panel board, and then either screw or pop rivet the panel board (with the windlace attached) to the area you want to attach the windlace to. Also sew a piece of headliner fabric to the windlace to cover up the area of the pillar next to the windshield. I have a model "A" coming in to my shop in about a week if you can wait that long to see some pictures. You need a 3/4" welt foot on your sewing machine to sew windlace with 1/2" sponge rod. Sewing it is 10 times faster than gluing it, and with far better quality. I'll post a picture tomorrow of some windlace all sewn up.

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