Headliner tack strips


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am trying to determine whether I have all parts needed to get my headliner installed. So far I have:

1- headliner

2- sail panels

3- headliner bows

4- wind lace

5 - headliner rod retainer (1piece) . I think I am missing one more.

6- tack strips are in a box... Where do these go ?

 

Any comments, pictures, diagrams are most appreciated.

 

Many thanks,

 

Nelson.

Make sure you get the bows in the right sequence. They are position specific. It may be to late, but whenever you remove a headliner leaves the bows in it until you are ready to slide them in the pockets of the new headliner.

 

Good luck

71-3's do not use windlace for the headliner

You can take the windlace and cut it in small strips to hold the headliner while installing it

 

If you have one clip - make the second one out of some small wire

I think your also missing a couple small narrow springs, maybe someone else can confirm this, i have a couple on mine.

 

Thank you all of you for your great insight !

 

Will add pics of finished product hopefully soon ...
