usually you can tell the front from the back by the spacing of the bows. the ones in the front are usually farther apart than the rear... but of course not sure in a wagon.This has inspired me to do it myself. Since it is a wagon it is about twice the size of a 2 door car. At least I will not have the sail panel area to deal with Have not removed it from the box yet, is there a front and rear edge to the headliner? Need to get this in so the glass can be installed.
It is supposed to be 110° in the shade this week. Probably just push the car outside, lay the headliner on the roof and let the sun make it hot.I think the most important thing you can do is to spread it out and heat it up ahead of time to eliminate the folds & creases.
Normally i like to put them in the clothes dryer on hot for about 5 mins... but with one that big i'm not sure. Might still be worth a shot. Those creases are a PAIN to work out later if you don't get them out first.
If you have a clothes steamer that can also work well to heat it up. Makr yourself a little a-frame to support and spread out the material, then steam the creases from the back side.
I'm getting ready to do one in a 67 Camaro in a few weeks... will be my 5th one.Wow,
I just refreshed my memory by rereading this thread, as its been a few years.
Yesterday, I installed a new headliner in my '67 El Camino... Wow, took under 3 hours!
Today I'll add the trim and visor mounts/mirror mount/dome bezel...
Ranks right up there with many of your posts on seat covers and foam...One of the most useful threads of all time!!!
