Gil tells me that his supplier doesn't stock headliners for my '75 Sportwagon.
Uh-oh. That's a big problem. That's one of the first jobs I'll have to do in conjunction with window rubber replacement, interior painting sealing, possibly the removal of the roof rack to facilitate an outside paint job, etc.
I get the sense from what he said that there might be other sources I could get a '75 Manta/Luxus/Ascona Sportswagon headliner from. Any suggestions? Norbert, are they available in Doychland?
Now, all I need is enough material to reach the tops of the windows all the way around and the rod pockets to be in the right place. He says that he DOES have Kadett headliners.
Couldn't I make one of those work? Maybe with a little Gordo modding?
I think he said that he DOES also have regular, non-Wagon, Manta/Luxus/Ascona headliners. I have no prior experience with Mantas, but I'm told that normal Mantas and the Wagon versions are virtually identical from the B or C pillars forward. I could get a normal Manta headliner and have it extended for the Wagon, assuming that most of the rod pockets are in the same place. Maybe.
Thoughts, ball busts, and useful information eagerly accepted.
