Gary , you are showing some solid work there. Enjoy the progress. 👍

My headliner was folded in 1/2 in a box for years. I have had it spread out on a spare bed since Christmas family left. Still wrinkled down the center. So today I took it to my Upholstery friend . He lightly steamed the backside and it looks much better. Now on a plywood table ( future cargo plywood) in shop getting Bows installed tomorrow.

Thanks Dave...

I installed SS button head 1/4-20 screws and stainless washers from under the floor today to check the retention of my cargo floorwood. I had different lengths of screws to check and it turns out the 5/8" length was perfect for 19/32 plywood and killmat on the floor, using one flat washer under the screw. If the screws protrude past the top surface of the wood, they would be visible thru the linoleum I'm planning to use on the floor. One has to admit that the button head screws and flat washers appear lots better under the floor than a protruding self-tapping screw and no dangers of scratched up hands when working under the floor! But another reason for attaching the cargo wood this way is to allow for removal of the cargo wood (should it be necessary) without destroying the expensive original linoleum!

#8 sheet metal screws - that little tidbit will save me some time. Thanks Dave!

O, and if you have your Bows replanted. Take a little sander or a file and clean up slag from plating process.

Wow Dave.. that's some nasty looking slag! I'd get my grinder/sander out rather than a file..

Gary, I did just that . They cleaned up easily. Working on getting Bows centered. Marking out center above windshield & Liftgate.
Also going back over tack strip. Hearing from members here that repro is thinner than original. Adding additional tack material where it is recessed .

I unwrapped a few of my bows to inspect the ends and am glad to see I didn't have any of the plating slag such as you had to deal with:

I'll pick up some stainless #8 screws for eventual installation. Thanks Dave.

JR, that's more like what I'm accustomed to seeing (although I've only had top bows rechromed a couple of times over 40 yrs.. )..
