Title: headliner switch
Post by: Robert Rottman on January 13, 2010, 05:53:28 AM
Can a cardboard headliner be ditched and replaced with a cloth headliner fairly easily or is it a big job? The reason I ask...all the 58 Plymouths (hardtops) came with the cardboard headliners which all eventually fall down, warp etc and they're deadly expensive to get new...I guess  Mopar Mel has the monopoly on them and they're big bucks! I'm wondering if going to cloth ...with the side to side bows can be done more reasonably...plus I always liked the mmuch more anyways...Thanks...I bet Stitcher Bob has done a few of these??
 
Thanks,

Sure it can.  All you need is a set of bows

Nope......


Contrary to popular belief, I have done a lot of different upholstery, but not much to Mopars as nobody wants to put out the cash. There have been some exceptions....most seen on these 2 sites, but the majority of my jobs have been Full Classics like Lincoln, Packard, Rolls Royce, Duesenberg and foreign cars like Hispano Suiza or Delage. That's where the big bux are being spent......

I would love to do more regular Mopar interiors, but where are they all??????(http://www.moparfins.com/forum/smileys/smiley11.gif)

here's a list of some of the Mopars I've done work to:
1932 Plymouth PB Roadster
1970 300 Hurst convertible
1972 Polaraco
1971 Fury3
1931 Imperial
1933 Chrysler Roadster
1961 300G convertible
1956 Dodge Custom Royal Lancer
1970 Fury Gran Coupe
1954 Plymouth Belmont
1978 Little Red Express
1989 Dakota convertible top
