Thanks for this thread, I'm not far from doing this. I like the poster board template idea.

Make sure it's not too small. Because when you push the last section in it might make it short in other spots.

Got my headliner in and was very happy with the cardboard kit from bowtie bits. The kit was a perfect fit. Made in USA too.
Little bit of trimming on the rear piece of cardboard only. A couple little tidbits to aid anyone doing this.
1) Start with the front piece and loosen but dont remove the windshield garnish mouldings, thise will hold one end on the cardboard headliner for you while you side the other end into the floating center retainer.
2) Hang the rear retainer loose by just 2 screws, this will hold the rear part of the rear cardboard, while you slide the front part of the rear cardboard into the center retainer
3) tighten the rear retainer
4)Trim the rear piece of cardboard on the back portion under the rear retainer with a razor blade.

I painted the interior roof with bed-liner, left over from doing the frame, before installing headliner. When I took out the old one a huge nest from a mice family was under it. The cab sure smelled nice..

I trimmed the new headliner on a table saw.............to get a perfect straight edge on the back.
