Reinstalling Interior
#1
I will be starting to reinstall my interior in a few weeks.  Has anyone put a list together of in what order to reinstall the interior for a fastback.  

Such as - Install
1. roof insulation
2. headliner
3. sail panels
etc.

I did a search and didn't find anything.  Be nice to have to make sure you don't skip over anything or get things out of order and find out you have to undo several hours worth of work to get the piece in. 

I be willing to do it but this is going to be my first go around on a Mustang and am not for sure which would be the best order.

Thanks kcmash.  That helps a lot.  I have a 71 fastback with fold down seat. Looks like I need to put in the trap door after the headliner and sail panels.

I have a question about sequence as well
I have the instrument cluster and bezel as well as shrouds in and the driver side
I cant figure out how to install the center bezel
Q: where does it fasten and how?
Does it go in after the dash pad ?
If not... does the radio and heater control have to be in place so the radio bezel holds it in?
I’ve had to retouch the dash due to scratches left by the center bezel.
Any input is greatly appreciated

Yep, Kinda awkward.  The center Stack should go in before the dash pad, and yes, the radio bezel holds the stack in.  You should have the heater controls in before installing in my opinion.  When you position the radio bezel there are screws that face straight up and thread into little u-nuts in the front of the dash frame.

Sorry I don't have pictures

Thanks! That really helps. Yes I was wondering about that and now I know the radio bezel does more than cover the opening and hold the radios in front

So thanks again!!!

I like to put the entire dash assembly in as one piece. Load it with everything: wiring, gauges, center stack, radio, heater controls, etc. Do all the hard work on the bench and, pop it in the car and you have a half dozen or so connections to make that take minutes, instead of hours.

To add to kcmash's post - adjust the quarter and door windows after installing the roof rail weatherstripping, but before putting the quarter trim and door panels on.

I like this idea....should be easy peasy on a convertible too!
