When installing the headliner in a 23-25 T Coupe is the headliner installed before the top ribs are installed or after. I am getting close to putting in the top and interior and would like some suggestions from some who have done a coupe. Any help would be appreciated!

Look under replacing a coupe roof and there are pictures of the headliner.

John,

The headliner gets installed before the top and the top ribs are installed. There is a shelf around the inside of the top rails. The upholstery gets installed first and folds into this shelf where it is tacked. Next is the beading. It gets tacked in from the top. Next is the headliner. Once the headliner is in, then you can install the top ribs and then the top.

It may be possible to do it after the roof is on. I'm simply explaining how Ford did it.

Here is a diagram of how it's done.
