There is a 1/4" thick tacking strip held in place with metal flaps that you either staple or tack the windlace to.

WELL THAT TURNED OUT GREAT.

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 !!

Can you take a picture of what you're trying to do? Windlace has to go on before the headliner goes in.

windlace question

What type of material is your windlace stapled to. I'am going to be doing my 56 Pontiac very soon and have seen what I took down, but not sure what it is. Doug

The material you staple the windlace to is like a heavy cardboard (about 3/8" thick) that is held in place by metal tabs. If you took it out, you'll need to replace it.

I also had these problems years ago, but learned to cut the vinyl correctly. The stretch needs to go the length of the windlace , plus i did not want to have seams in it So i cut it on the BIAS and it worked great Makes for show quality .

For those of you who don't know, cutting welt cord on the bias means cutting the fabric strips at a 45 degree angle. This means using up a huge amount of fabric, or having welts that have a huge number of seams. I'm not sure how you can bias cut anything longer than about 7 feet long without having to seam it.

You can cut material up the roll and get 15 ft but how are you going to cut it on a bias and get 15 feet off of a 54 inch roll?

It is not the exact Bias, but it will still stretch like the Bias , more material but less work. no wrinkels, 2 1/2 yards with vinyl. There is still a lot of vinyl left to work with. think about it , it only takes 2 strips 4 in wide
