Once the hood lining and windscreen are in, I’ll be one step closer to being finished

That is looking mint. Can you take a pic of the car from the side to see all of it?

I’ll post a better picture of the whole car once it’s registered.

The remaining jobs

Instal hood lining, front and rear screens and rear bumper bar.

Installing a hood lining

by NSWEH225M » Thu Aug 01, 2019 12:30 pm

Looking for a bit of guidance (tips) wrt installing a EH hood lining.

What I’m struggling with at the moment is removing wrinkles from the back half of the hood lining, that is the area around the rear 3 bows and down the C pillar.

I’ve got the front half of the hood lining installed and looking good, this is the area from the front windscreen up to the interior light, good means no wrinkles.

Any hood lining advice would be appreciated greatly.

You should of hung out on the clothes line in the sun and that helps removed all the wrinkles before you install..
You just have to persevere and if you have a hand held steamer it will also help eliminate wrinkles,A lot of patience and stretching/
Stretch and glue the rear window section and then work down the sides as you stretch them into place,,old pinch weld cut in to 3 inch
length help to hold headlining in place

Thanks.

I haven’t glued the hood lining in yet, next attempt will be putting it the sun first.

If you haven't fitted it yet start from the middle where the wire is and put in place, and the the front bow and stretch to front window glue in place, the work your way to the back window, then do the sides

I ended up getting a motor trimmer to put my hood lining/ headliner in. It took him the best part of 3 hours to do this, there’s no way that I could of done what he did, he knew just where to pull, heat and stretch in order to get it all to fit nicely, sometimes you can’t beat 40 years experience. Anyway after he left I put the rear screen in, that went well but I don’t think it’s sitting perfectly. Today I’ll have another look at the rear screen and also have a go at putting in the front screen.
