    It's a few years since this was created, but searching the internet can be a beautiful thing. I'm installing a Mac's headliner in my '41 sedan now and this has been huge. I was winging it, mostly OK but there are some tips and techniques here that will end up with an easier, better end result, installation. Thanks so much for sharing.

    I’ve also found this through an internet search... excellent and thanks... I spent Saturday doing the bows and basic install in my 40 Ford... need to finish windlace first which I would not have guessed without your post.

    Great contribution....
