I must make a new headliner for my coupe. any information on how it is installed? It is not like the newer closed cars where the cloth goes on a little shelf around the top wood.
If its like the later closed cars the headliner is installed before any of the top covering is installed.
I don't know about the earlier ones but I would certainly consider if the headliner can be put in after the top is put on.
Maybe someone who has a similar car can answer that.
If there is no shelf maybe its tacked on directly on top of the wood then the ribs, (if it has them) and then the padding or whatever then the top material.
