Windlace?
#1
Is there windlace anywhere in the interior of a '72 fastback? When I gutted the interior and there was none. Almost ready to start reinstalling everything and want it to look right, NOT a trailer queen by any means, just want it to look correct.

Good luck on finding anything close to original. I restored a 69 vert a few years ago. The reproduction windlace stuff was horrible. I was lucky to find somebody in line (Ebay) that had decent originals - in the same color. Even though I had to re-dye, the reproduction crap was never gonna work.

I have seen it available, but my question is, WHERE it goes. I remember that some of the panels actually sort of wrapped around the interior edges where I had windlace on my '66. Just wondering WHERE it goes as I had none on my interior removal.

yup that is the only place it is stapled to the quarter panels from behind there is a edge it mounts to. they make repop windlace for the 71-73 i've used it, didn't have any issues with it.
i basically line it up then drilled holes for the staples, then hand installed the staples and bent them closed by hand. matched the originals just fine.

the older cars used a lot more wind-lace. but for 71-73 it is just on the leading edge of the rear quarterpanel interior pieces.
