The online catalog for ground up shows that they are selling sail panels for 70-72's. Has anyone tried these and if so do they have all the curves and metal for the window channel?

I tried to locate the panels your talking about and didn't find them. I didn't know anyone was repoping just that sail/rear window channel area, although I've always thought someone could get rich doing so. The only way I was aware that you could get that area is to purchase a full quarter. Post a link to the sail panel your referencing please.

I looked for sail panels for my -69, and it seems like some are not covered, they're just a plain piece of cardboard. These were supposed to be installed when you replace the headliner, and you have to cover them yourself with extra vinyl that comes with the headliner. I'm sure they come covered too, but you might want to double check before you order.

I ordered from PUI interiors and they come covered. They did not have any metal on them.

I misunderstood apparently. I thought you were talking about the sheet metal and rear window corner that is almost always rusted out on the 70-72 body. Are you talking about interior trim in the body shop thread, if so the 70-72 interior sail trim panel doesn't have metal trim to the side window, there is a rubber c-shaped piece that rests against the inside of the window and the rubber trim for the head liner covers the front edge of the cardboard sail panel. If it is a trim question post it over in the interior thread, those guys can give you a hand.

Okay it wont let you click on it, so type in that sight and it should take you to the sheetmetal pages on their site. The panels are shown on page 100 and again you must have acrobat to view.

In that picture it looks like it is just the flat side panel. I can't imagine why they would want to repop just that. What is needed is the panel with the curve from the fender crown into the window channel from the rear window to trunk filler up to the roof joint. one that fits here

Looks like you'll have to call that product info number at the top of the page and ask. Maybe since they are our sponsor Al could get the inside track on it.

BTW try putting a space between your period and the http in the link above.
