Finally - headliner installation started.
Actually had all of the bows to start.
2 of them had lost there number position tags (Only been tagged for 9 years)
Repaired center bow (no hooks) only to find that there was a perfect one in the roof of the car.

Thanks Dave and Terry,

Dave, only question is how to mount the sails by the rear
window - have enough material on them to glue a flap
in place near the rear window. Also had to make three
holes in the "B" post sail to clear the mounting holes
for the Shoulder Belt anchor. 2 are covered for the anchor
plate mounting holes and 1 is a pass through for the anchor pin.

Terry, its cloth.

More pics final installation.

If you look closely at the "B" post sails you will see the shoulder belt
anchor bolt and the two screws for mounting the hand strap.

No steaming was required.

Looks great! As for the sail panels, I bought the cardboard templates (over priced, and easy enough to make them, I’d say). I covered them with the spare material, and they are held in by the garnish molding and the rubber flap of the rear window gasket. Seems plenty secure to me, but I suppose you could glue them.
I did as you did on the b pillars: ran the bolt for the seat belt shoulder harness anchor thru the b pillar cover (which I also bought but should have just made myself).

Thanks Postman57 - After seeing the sail forms, yes fabbing them
would have been easy, I would have used 3/16 luan for longevity.

Thanks angs1957 - still concerned about the rear glass seal and
it fitting over the headliner otherwise one more job checked off.
Once again Bill. I think it looks great. I'm considering doing my own. Are the liners the same for 2 and 4 door sedan. And are there any with a different number of bows? I may need to take a drive up to see you car.

Thanks Krunk !!!! - Much appreciated.

Thanks daves - Much appreciated.

Daves - Headliners and bows

- bows are the same for 2 door post sedans and 4 door
post sedans. The 2nd bow from the bottom in the photo below mounts
right in front of the dome light fixture. the rest have have
a set of holes on each side for the ends to plug into.

- headliners, I believe that they are the same for 2 door
post sedans and 4 door post sedans.

2 door sport coups (hardtops) and 4 door sport sedans (hardtops)
bows and headliners are different than the post sedans. They may
be the same for 2 door/4 door sport coups - I don't know.
