Re: IML: Roof panel inserts



Thanks for your suggestion John!
I understand that the factory also used a sort of protection during the production of our cars!
Polyester film will be a good modern replacement I guess.

The drip lip trim retains that edge of the inserts.  The upper edge is caught under the roof spears, and the leading edge goes under the header trim over the windshield.  When I did my 61 4dr, I was concerned about abrasion and rust between the panels and the painted roof, so I first laminated the roof are under the panels with acrylic-adhesive polyester film.

Hi Richard,
 
Thanks for hoppin' in on this subject?
I don't understand completely how the inserts are kept in place ..
I understand that one side (the one that goes under the roof trim ) secure its but is the opposite side slide under the roof rail or something?
Do you have any pictures left from your restore project that can be helpful to me (that is if I win the Ebay auction ofcourse :) ?
If so, feel free to mail them to me (offlist)
 
Thanks,
 
Robert

The roof trim has a 90 degree flange around the top perimeter that has to go under the moulding.  The moulding is the same regardless.

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.
