Decided to post this by picking up the link that Clint posted about a headliner for his hardtop. I have a '70 hardtop that I'd like to put a liner on, too. Has anybody done one and if you did, what did you use? I was talking about it with a friend of mine, and he suggested plywood, I think he was being sarcastic, but the more I think about it, the more I think it could work. By using very thin sheeting, like indoor paneling, I think I could bend it to fit the curves of the top and attach it with washers and pop rivets. I had also planned to use the insulation from JC Whitney that Clint mentioned. I'd appreciate any thoughts or input that anyone on the list may have on this. Thanks.

go to a sign shop and ask for a sheet of expanded pvc. it comes in various thicknesses and colors, very flexable, and won't rot. never tried it for a headliner, but i will now.

John, I have tuck and roll upholstery in my half cab. I epoxied wood blocks to the inside of the top to put the hold down screws to.[They make special screws for the upholstery]I Used the thinnest sheet plywood I could get [1/8] and attached the upolstery to it. you can get the tuck and roll already made up, or just flat and put it on. I didn't try to get a lot of curve and just put on narrow pieces to make it look good. It's good enough for show I'm told.

John, I'm drawing a blank on what it is called but at Home Depot they sell sheets of thin white board for showers, it bends easily & looks great. I used phillips heads with washers to attach.
