Re: Headliner replacement



On my 64 Dodge, it is best to work from the front and go toward the back. . At the back, there is a spring that goes from the back and attaches to the last bow. That keeps tension on the headliner. Your 63 may be different though. . Go to Menards or Lowes, or Home Depot  and get some heat duct insulation  I believe " Frost King " brand. IT is  aluminum backed with a foam like insulation and self adhesive.  It is about 3/16 " thick and comes in a roll  about 12" wide.  Very in-expensive. Stick it to your roof before you put the bows in.  Got to help with insulating that hot metal roof...................................MO

There is a link on the tech page (about 2/3 down the page)

called "A how-to on installing a sewn type headliner with bows"
that may help.

Thanks,
