Mach1 - interior upper rear panel to rear window - Engine302 - 08-29-2018

who can give me directions for installation of these upper inner rear panels?
How these are fixed in the upper edge to the window ? There is no molding to cover, correct? No wholes to fix with screws?
Mine are over bent ! Are these are available to buy somewhere?
I checked the forum but did not find any post on this topic?!
Any guidance is welcome!

Headliner goes in first. These go over the lower edge of the headliner and wrap around the rear window pinch weld and the retainer by the qtr window, which I don't see in your picture. There's also a door panel style clip that goes into that hoel int he sail panel.

Yup!

There's also a vintage headliner installation article at Mustang-360 that also talks about the sail panels.

Don't want to hijack this post but I have a question about 1 of the pictures in that article.  Does the rear glass have to come out in order to install the headliner????

Pretty sure it does. Probably needs to come out anyway to fix any rust issues. They used a sucky foam tape to seal up which should be replaced with regular sealer used with rubber gasket install. New gasket also.

Guess I will be driving it to the upholstery shop with no back window.  I'm not going to do the headliner myself.

SC,
Yes the rear window has to be removed to install the headliner.
Thanks, Jay

Thanks Jay.  What about the front window?  Pretty sure I can drive the car to the interior shop with no back window installed but dot think I can get away with no front window.... Haha

It's easier with the windscreen out, but can be done with it in. The upholstery shop could probably R&R the rear window for you.
