Headliner (Eastwood)
#1
My headliner is being installed tomorrow and I decided to have them install the Eastwood Theromomat stuff between it and the roof. One of the Mustang restoration companies (not one of ours on here) suggested against doing this. They said in high heat it could detach and fall down on the liner (and cause damage). Any thoughts?

I used the eastwood stuff in my car. Not on the roof. I used it in the doors and floor and its still sticking good after 4 years. It sticks really well,but it has to be very clean. No rust or old fabric. Has to seal to the roof very well if you use it up there. Make sure you roll it in very well to get it to adhere.

I have no experience with that but do know that under hood insulation is held in place by those plastic push pins. I wouldn't trust anything to stick to an upside down frying pan. Did MM suggest an alternative?

Standard insulation (which I do own).

I think Eric found a way to put Rammat up there somehow.

Boy I am in the wrong business. These little pirates want to be paid in gold for the install. Geez!

They've been working on it for about 3 hours.

Jeremy, I hope they are not done in that picture
It looks like you are missing a bow behind the dome light ???
Might be missing 2 or 3 bows
Also don't see the toothed metal hooks on the roof to quarter panel area.

They missed some bows
The metal / hook strip is there in your picture
It runs in the area where the headliner meets the sail panels

I'm hoping the body shop didn't remove these items to clean / blast the rust and not put them back in ??
