    I am still mapping out the headliner screws and I needed to place the radio box back in where it was mounted to place the wire harness and antenna lead through either the headliner or the header panel. I cut out the header panel from my template and checked the fit. Made a few trim cuts for a better fit. For now I made cut outs at the top of the header panel for the antenna and wire harness cause Im still not sure where it all will fall in place yet. I will confess to you guys, just don't tell anyone, that I have a slight shortage at the passenger back area. I am going to try to pad the frame and wrap around the side header panel a little higher than I originally wanted to. Yes guys, Its another snaffoo!. I placed the dome light back in and the front header panel for a fit check before I glue the vinyl to it. I also checked the dome light to make sure it works right.

    I cut out the header panel and mapped out the wire harness and antenna lead cut outs for the radio. After I checked the fit I glued the 2x2 diamond pattern. So I’m using the 2x2 on the header and side panels to the back window.

    I scored the back portion of the board that bends at the back of cab every inch across the back section. I wet the board and gently bent the board and persuaded it to curve and it looked like I got it half way there. I stopped to check the fit. I can't get the board through slot between the roll bar and body, because its too thick. ?$%%$%%()&())_*)(. Now I have to find something thin and flexible like a plastic sheet to swing passed the roll bar. It has to be 24x 60. Guess im off to Home Depot. What a disappointment this was. i really wanted to use that board to hang the side panels both sides.

    Im using that now. Its too thick to make the bend around the roll bar area. i need something more flexible and thinner.
