    Looks real good to me and came out as well as the one I put the 66 Mustang I gave my grandson.

    Especially with the visors in you're probably the only one who will ever notice it.

    Is the headliner vinyl or cloth?
    It looks vinyl in your photographs.
    But if it's cloth you can shrink wrinkles out by spraying them lightly with water.

    Some of the wrinkles will go away the first time it's baked in the sun.

    It's vinyl. It actually looks like it's shrunk a little and tightened up in a few spots over the last few days.

    I've seen guys spray water on vinyl and then heat it with a heat gun to get the wrinkles out. It looks really nice though. I've put one in and I never thought it was going to look decent. It was a good learning experience. Haha

    Does the place you got your carpet from make it for other years? Forgive me if you made it. I can't remember if you did or not.

    Yeah, they do. It was really reasonably priced, fit well, and looks to be pretty well made. Here's where I got it:

    Boil the kettle and then hold it up under where the creases are and allow the steam from the pourer gentle warm the vinyl. That is how most auto upholsterers do it when I have watched them. It is looking good though and you have accomplished a nice job on fitting the trim.
    I maybe a little crazy but it stops me going insane.

    Bumpers on! I'm off work all this week and am planning an all out blitz to get as much as I can wrapped up and start road testing.

    Those bumpers really cap it off don't they??!?!? Exciting to hear you're coming down the home stretch as it were.
