  • Interior: headliner attatching rail

    my first time on a chat room (bear with me). I am looking for the rail with gripping teeth to attatch the headliner on my 54 K model hdtp. One of them was so rusted i cannot use it

      Welcome to the forum. Are you the fellow I directed here on the phone ?

        I pulled one of those clips and went looking for something, anything, close. I found a stall at the local automotive flea market that sold all sorts of connectors and there was a box of clips that weren't exact, but close enough to work. Originals are nearly impossible to find, but a "fastener" outlet might get you something close. Good luck.

          headliner stays

          If you're really in need, I think they could be fashioned from some light sheet stock. Here's a pic of what the ones on my 55 President looked like. The duct tape served as a soft spot for the fabric as it was rolled up and under the length of the piece to catch on small points(barbs). There were 2 pieces on each side over the doors. Each stay was fastened by a series of steel pins that had to be quarter turned to allow removal. Some areas the pins were gone and screws were used. The only area that might require some creativity is where the stay meets the windshield. I have more pics if you need.
