    Once the bows were clipped in Bill started tugging on the material for a tight fit..

    Here's a tip Bill showed me...
    All screws inside were put back in their respective locations before the headliner was installed.
    Using a razor blade he cut the material at the screws instead of "guessing" where the holes were.
    this includes the sun visors and the shoulder belts.

    Maggie had the day off from her work and cleaned all the parts that were out for the headliner install..
    including the rear seats.

    2-1/2 hours and the interior is back in one piece.

    Now we wait for the correct vinyl top to arrive and install it and the rear glass.
    Stay tuned!

    If I had to do the headliner, I'd put the car on a rotisserie and flip it over so i didn't have to look up so much!:lol:

    It's been a while since my last update---and for good reason.
    I waited 3 weeks for the vinyl top to come in and when I opened the box it was black! I ordered white!
    So I had to wait another two weeks for the correct one.
    This really put the project behind and now winter has set in.
    I used Newstalgia for the top and had it shipped to my U.S. shipping address to keep shipping costs down.
    But when I have to cross the border twice for the same thing when somebody screwed up it costs me money and time.
    I explained to the supplier that i have to drive a couple hours return trip,pay bridge tolls,put gas in the car and pay duties on the vinyl top.
    I asked to be compensated and they did give me a partial refund to cover the second trip.
    They also included a return packing slip for the black top. But...I had to drive into Watertown NY to drop it off at a Fedex shipping depot.
    So with all the running around done yesterday,today we took the white top out of the box to see if it is the correct roofline.....it is not--but will work.
    It appears it may fit a 72/73 Imperial with the formal rear window.
    But that is OK...there is plenty of material we can cutback to work on the Fury's convex rear window and sportsroof line.
    Bill Becket will be doing the professional install and hoping it will work out..
    We left it on the car to rest and the warm shop will help get rid of the fold marks.
    Stay tuned!!

    You seem to have infinite patience. I would have exploded. It sounds like Newstalgia is some sort of re seller since they seem to have no clue what they are selling. Thanks for the fair warning to avoid this incompetent vendor.
