Bow headliner installation
« on: April 16, 2018, 08:37:43 AM »
When removing the headliner we did not mark the holes or number the bows, does anyone have any tricks or recommendations?

I haven't done headliner bows in an F-body, but have done them in other older cars. Only advice I have in your situation is to trial fit the bows by themselves. I think it'll become evident which one goes where by the fit. On the cars I did, the bows would be slightly rubbing the underside of the roof in their original positions.

IIRC the bows are the same length? There should be a register mark in the holes used from the bows rubbing if you look close.
