I'm glad someone's getting some use out of this thread - that's why I'm trying to keep up with it . I get so much from a lot of other guys' threads here too , so I think of it as paying it forward . As for the headliner , it's pretty imperative that the rear glass be out to do the headliner, as there's no garnish moulding to help hold it in place . The front glass can probably be left in place and glued well and be alright . The garnish moulding will help hold it there . The headliner was one of the jobs I was really dreading , to be honest . Just one of those things that psyched me out . Installing the front & rear glass was another . We had a hell of a time installing the front glass in my buddy Craig's Shoebox , but mine went MUCH smoother . Again , another psych-job , LOL ! Why thank ya , sir !! It sucks that you sold your '49 , but at least you found a suitable replacement in a '40 . They're sa-weet ! Thanks ! At this point, the plan is to paint it a dark copper color (I like the copper color Ford put on the Mustang back in '73) . It will keep with my car's name , and my mantra with this budget build- "The Penny Pincher" . The car will go on the road this spring in epoxy primer to start with , till I run the bugs out of it , and spend all my money on my Route 66 trip .
