I'm wondering how hard or easy to would be to put a 5 bow headliner in my car. 64 Valiant two post car. Is there special tools for getting the sides and front and back up in those hooks? Does it need to be glued also? Thanks for your time.

Re: Headliner install

i did mine in the cuda, it was pretty easy...

i needed a little tool for the front, and rear, but the sides were just pulled tight and the pressed onto the hooks.

i think iused a butter knife to catch the liner and push it up into the window rubber untill it hooked front and back.

the hardest part was the sides onthe cuda...

but the door sides were easy, and came out good. do them first, then front and back.

good luck

So you didn't use any glue then?  Go any pictures of how it looks?  I'm also going around an 8 point roll bar.

Re: Headliner install

::) o[ I'm still trying to get the roll cage in it, before I put it in.  Have you played with the Hemi yet.  I wish I could afford to get started working on my 392 Hemi for something.

Re: Headliner install

Ok, I'm finially getting ready to do this. I'm needing to know how you did the sail panel area for those that have done one in an early A? I'm thinking that the Darts are the same way on the sail panels in the back. Are they glued to the car then you glue the headlinger to the sail panel board then you strech and hook it to the then prongs in the car? Thanks in advance.
