    Interior HELP!

    Hello All, I am hoping someone can help me with an interior question on my 1964 Wildcat. I purchased the car a year ago and the car was completely torn down by the previous owner. At this time, I now have it running and driving, replaced the truck and front floor boards, completely torn down the dash and painted, repair wires, replaced vacuum lines, and replaced the duck work for the A/C system. Now itís time to move on the over parts of the interior. The question I have is,
    ∑ The headliner that was in the car was in five pieces/panels (no bows) and they were wrapped in vinyl. Is this correct or should it be wrapped in a cloth material? Are the panels correct or should it be the bow type headliner?
    ∑ Does anyone know a place I can purchase seat cover and other inferior components for my car so I can install it myself?
    Thanks for taking to read my post

    The Wildcat 2-Dr HT and 4-Dr HT cars with the custom interior used 5 panels covered in polyurethane foam for the headliner. This type construction appears to have been borrowed from earlier Estate Wagon headliners. Other models used the bow-type headliner having listing wires fitted into pockets sewn into the headliner sheet material (usually vinyl).

    Attached are a couple of pages from the body manual and a service letter dealing with the mouldings that hold the headliner panels in place.

    A couple of places to start with for interior items are www.smsautofabrics.com and www.stockinteriors.com

    Depending on the part, there is considerable crossover to other years and GM makes.
