We are getting ready to install a headliner in our strech cab 53 Chevy and when we were doing the finish metal work, we removed the strip that holds the inside rubber windlace.
The entire roof area is covered with 18ga. sheet metal, with insulation in between.
The question is the windlace AND the headliner material?
Do we start over and cover the roof with wood, or something to attach the windlace at the edges, or just contact glue to the metal?

YES this is a very helpful site with great folks, Thanks !!
