Hey Austin.
Car looks great. I'm getting ready to do my coupe interior an was wondering if you have pics of it going in.
Not sure where if any wood is supposed to be there.
Any help will be appreciated.

Austin, I would also be interested in how you installed the various upper panels. Did you buy a pre-fab kit or did you fabricate? Harv.

Yes I used a Mac's kit.

How are the ends of the header (the part where the rearview mirror mounts) mounted to the body? Also, how did you tack the bottom of the rear corner panels down? Mine were originally nailed down, but the nails were hidden under the fabric. There were holes going through the panel board, but not the outside of the fabic.

I am replacing mine with some temporary fabric until I can afford the two grand to replace all of it.

Thanks.

They do nail on including the header panel. My T is missing the bottom ledge that the header panel fits down in.

So, is the bottom ledge made of wood? If so, then my tudor is missing it as well. When I took off the headliner to have the wood rebuilt, the header was part of the headliner, or at least sewn into it. Was this the case with the kit you purchased from Mac's?

No it is made of metal. Some one replaced my header panel with a piece of flat steel on the inside. I drilled holes for the plastic grommets to fit in for the nails in the header upolstery.

Nice trim job, yes be proud of it.
Just one question, what backing board did you use to trim over.
Were the originals good enough or did to you replacements made???

Jim,
The nails are small finishing nails, that have small heads. You take the nail, carefully poke it through the upholstery fabric--the idea is to go between the weaves of the fabric, then nail the panel down. As soon as the nail is flush with the material & maybe a little below it, take a dull needle, near the nail and also poke it through, between the weaves and gently lift the fabric over the nail--the "nail hole" will disappear.
Voila! No nails! :-)
Of course, this all assumes you don't bend the nail over driving it in! Ooooops!

As I recall, on my '27 Tudor, the lower edge of the front top upholstery panel was retained by a full width lip that was an integral part of the windshield hinge.
