    Shifty,can't wait to see the finished product.

    BTW.....That was the uglyest tan that ford could have possibly come up with on that 77/79. :D
    I know....mine was that color. When my wife first saw my cheros color, she called it "Crayola Ford caucasian fleshtone tan".

    Here is the kick panel. The parts come black in color. It is painted with Dearborns vinyl dye. I also did the armrests and it is an exact match and went on good and has nice coverage. But... at 10$ a can it had better be nice!!! Like we always say, you cant put a price on quality ;)

    No you can't put a price on quality and your ride is looking priceless. Very impressive. I like that your keeping it original. It's gonna look good at the car shows.

    Hwo did you get the wrinkles out of your headliner. What you have pictured is as far as I got. But for some reason if i stretch the sides the wrinkles won't come out
    Thanks

    Hey Joe, This web page has some good tips. http://www.autorestorer.com/articles/art121.html
    I parked my car in the sun for the whole morning before i started. The hotter the better!!!! Just have to keep working it.... here is a picture of the clips we used... It is a 8ft piece of plastic edge molding i got at Home Depot. all we did is cut it into little pieces. It works slick.

    Well it's finally supposed to get pretty hot here this weekend, i'll give it a go. Now this moulding from Home Depot. If I tell the guy plastic edge moulding he'll know what I mean?
    And, thanks for the info and the link, I printed it. Your help is most invalueble.
    Thanks
    Joe

    Looking good! I am going to start working on the interior and body of my '67 soon so this is a great inspiration to me.

    Laters,
