I purchased new cardboard headliner from Jim Carter, and I am wondering if I put the front or rear cardoard in first? Which one slides into the bow, and what direction does the center bow face? Does it make a difference? thanks. Tim

I believe the front goes in first and then the rear slides into the center bow. The center bow screws through the front piece. You need to prebend the cardboard. You can see how I did it in my photos on photo bucket. I took a week bending a little each day. First I let it lay flat from being rolled from the supplier.

GWWirth, Do you have any more close-up pictures of the center bow? I have the trim piece for the front and back of the headliner but not the middle. I'll need to make something and having an idea of what it's supposed to look like would help.
