I'm wondering if anybody has installed the TMI 1-Piece Headliner yet?

http://www.tmiproducts.com/mustang/browse-by-vehicle/classic-1964-1973/1971-73/1971-73-mustang-sportsroof-1-piece-headliner-corinthian-vinyl.html

Apparently this upgrade gives an extra couple of inches in headroom plus can be installed with or without the front/rear glass looks VERY appealing.

Be interested to see pictures of one installed in a 71-73.
I believe that they installed one on the Mach 1 on the Wheelers Dealers show this year.  I think it was the first episode and there is a brief scene in the show where they comment on it and you get a quick look at it.  I could be wrong but...

Good luck, I'm curious how they look up close too.

I have just acquired a 1971 Mach 1 and setting out on a restomod to make this vehicle something different and special.
This forum is my choice as 71-73 models are not popular in Australia and information is difficult to find.
My VIN: 1F05M218422
It will be along the lines of one in Japan.

I am also very interested in finding more information on this Headliner.

I asked the company for more information with no luck, I will try again as I

wish to upgrade my interior of my restomod.

Too bad they don’t have the one piece for a coupe. I’d be willing to try it if they did. Have been trying to decide what to do with my headliner. It is rough. Holes, sags.

73pony,

I am hoping they will have one for the coupe also.

One piece headliner is surely nice. But in case you want fix your coupe headliner, its a very simple sewing job, you don't need any experience or talent at all. its a matter of cutting rectangles of whatever material you like as large as the car and the in between arch spaces + like 1 inch, lay them together and sew straight 1/2 inch inside to the other side in one go with an extra piece to go around the bars/arch. 1 hour work at most if you really take your time.

If you'd want a so called french seam, you'd need be careful go straight and parallel between sewing pass, but even that can be done easy for the headliner by just clamping a piece of wood to the material to act as a guide. As you likely do not use thick/very though material, any regular sewing machine can be used.

i don't have larger picts in house, but you get the idea, here using thick cotton.

Coupe has a few more inches of headroom than a sportsroof, so it's probably not really needed. At 6'3", my hair rubs on the headliner of my Mach, and I offset it to the highest holes on the driver's side when I installed it.

I'm small, 1.73m and got only the remains of what was once called hair. These cars were tailor made for me :)
