    I'm going to glue it to the Masonite and from what I've read on some upholstery sites the stuff to use is Weldwood Landau top and trim adhesive. Supposed to be the strongest upholstery adhesive out there and good to use on door panels, headliner edges, etc.

    correct. all other glues will soften and release from heat. the top glue is the best to use.

    I did the door panels on my wagon. I spent 3 days in the shop gluing, cutting and stapling. I had the seats and carpet done by a shop and I did the panels and console.
    Not sure if you are aware that there are companies that make headliners for your car. I talked to a place called SMS Fabrics and they actually made me a headliner for my wagon in the same vinyl material to match my seats and door panels.

    Thanks! I did get some samples from SMS and a few other online places. We decided to go with a place called Automotive Interiors & Accessories, Inc. My wife and I are going to try to sew our own seat covers and do the door panels, I'm ordering the headliner and carpet pre made. I've done a little upholstery before, I put in a bow headliner and carpet in my 70 Monte Carlo and have made door panels for a few cars. Never sewed anything but I've got a buddy who was a production sewing machine mechanic in a few different factories who is helping us out. Fingers crossed it comes out decent!

    My carpet and windlace came in, just waiting on the headliner and vinyl before we start putting the interior together. I finished my seat risers and got them painted along with putting some off brand dynamat on the roof. Still need to insulate the floor and firewall.

    Several things done this week; I finished insulating the floor. the guy that was sandblasting my seat springs once again put me off a couple more weeks. I finally said the heck with it, picked them up and just sprayed them with POR-15 after wire brushing off the rusty spots. I was looking at my air cleaner and was worried that even with the dual snorkels, it wouldn't get great airflow. So I saw this idea on a factory Ford high flow air cleaner. Should be much better now. All my upholstery stuff is here except for the headliner, which is another week out. As soon as it gets here we'll start putting stuff together.

    Looks like your rolling. Seat springs would be awful to blast. I did a bunch of trim today and those little pieces take forever. That POR-15 is great stuff, ever tried to sand it off ? I just found out my neighbor is doing a 47 like yours, he has a nice body to start with but it looks like he is about 15 yrs from done

    Very nice progress. I really like the steering wheel (but hey it’s the same one I’m using on my 37 so I might be a bit prejudice) the “Plymouth” in the horn button is a really nice touch.

    Finished up my air cleaner and the rest of my upholstery supplies came in so here goes nothing. I got the windlace on and just hung the headliner on the bows. It's been folded up in a box so from what I've read you should leave it like this for a few days and let it relax before you start attaching anything. I also have been having a major carburetor battle. I bought a factory rebuilt Street Demon 1900 carb to replace the old Holley 4160 I had on for a temporary. I fought this thing to no end trying to get it to run right, even called their tech line and had them send me some documentation on how to do all the initial set up adjustments but it kept flooding constantly and ran like crap. I finally said the heck with it and threw some rebuild parts in the the old Holley and threw it back on. Starts as soon as you hit the key and runs like a champ. Go figure.

    Thanks! Got the headliner and carpet in over the last week; will be starting on door panels shortly. Headliner came out OK; this is the second one I've done and it's looks better than the first but still a few wrinkled areas I had a hard time working out. For the price, I can live with it.
