Re: IML: Roof panel inserts



Hey Rob,
I don't think I would add the ss insert without taking the roof trim off.  Assuming you could just lay them in (which I doubt you could without trimming the edges) you would run the risk of getting water underneath the panels.  I don't think you would be able to seal it well enough with an epoxy glue.  Taking down the headliner isn't all that difficult, time consuming and stressful because you're trying to protect a very thin 48 year old piece o vinyl, but it's not difficult.
Your car would look great with those inserts.  If you drive it over I'll give you a hand with the headliner!!

Is the same roof trim used then, or was a different type of roof trim used to hold the inserts down?
Will it also be possible  to glue the inserts in place (with epoxy glue maybe?) so that I won't have to disturb the headliner and roof trim?
Just a thought!

Oh yes, and if you don't you will later, when the water leaks in the mounting holes and ruins the headliner anyway!

I believe that you do need to remove the headliner in order to remove the roof trim that holds them down.

@Paul: 

 

As you know, I own a 60 Crown 4 door HT. How difficult is it to fit these roof panel inserts? 
I really like them a lot, allthough they are already high on the dollar at Ebay... 
However, I don't want to tear down the headliner if that is necessary to fit those inserts. 

 

Do you have any idea how hard it is to mount these roof panels?

They are made to fit a four door. I believe that the request was for a 
Two Door, which requires longer panels. Also, these specific panels 
will only work on '60 & '61. They could be made to work on '62, but 
would require some skill, and the acquisition of a several more 
expensive trim pieces. 1963 had a completely different roof line and 
these will NOT fit that year.

Hi: Someone on the list was looking for a pair of Stainless Steel 
roof panel inserts. There is a pair for sale on E-bay for the 1961-63 
Imperial. I'm not sure if those are the years he was looking for. 

 

They are item # 200206339211.
