The reason I asked is because you are in the 1973-1979 F100 and larger F-Series trucks > crewcab only thread.You got the crewcab part right now get the years right and you will have a better chance of getting your question answered.

Well OK I am back. Seems to be alot going on here. I have looked elsewere for any threads for newer crewcabs to no avail. So. I am asking anyone know of such a thread? Perhaps I over looked it. I am looking for what you all seem to have here but for a newer crewcab..but older ones would be ok too...

Hey F800 you got a 460 in that silver monster? What kind of speeds you run on the interstate?

I never updated this thread.

Final mock up of the headliner.

I ground out the spot welds on the original center divider and removed that. I also added the flat plate for the dome light mount.

Fitted for size.

Dome light installed, still need to run wire.

Testing the glue on the headliner. I thought I'd try it without the padding for better adhesion but it looks much better with the padding. The countertop glue holds excellent and I have no fear of it seperating down the road.

Test fitting the leather.

Black leather with some 1/2" padding. I have it all glued in place but don't have a finished picture yet. Still haven't installed it as I'm waiting on paint.

It was 1/16" thick formica countertop. I didn't pull measurements, just laid the old headliner on it and drew the outline and hit it with a router then a belt sander for final touch up. I probably installed and took it out 3 or 4 times making minor size adjustments for fit. It really requires 2 people to put it up, formice will crack easily if you let it hang freely. On the other hand thought is flexible enough to follow the contour but yet strong enough to hold it's shape when up.

I put the center light in for 2 reasons:

1) Ford should of done this to begin with

2) It holds the center of the headliner nice and tight to the inner roof line

For #2 on thew above - did you screw the light into the "crossmember" that goes across the roof?

And do you know if they make replacement lenses for those lights? I grabbed one out of the 86 bronco I had in the shop but light plastic lens is destroyed.

I screwed it into the plate I welded in. Turned out to be perfect for a driver viewing light. Yes I've seen lenses seperately before.

Cool Radiator Mounts

Ok, so I bought a '73 CC a while back and have been using a '78 F-150 for a donor. Well the previous owner has Hacked the h*ll out of the truck,
Specifically the front end. The previous owner had put a 6.9 diesel in it, anyway at the moment I am trying to put the radiator mount (front clip) in the '73 from the '78 but it apears that he cut the frame and welded in lower mounts to the outside of the frame....so the front clip wont match up. I believe this was done in part because he used a different steering gear box. It's a mess! Does anyone have pic's of what it should look like? Are the lower mounts for the radiator support centered in the front part of the frame? It looks to me like they were, but the previous owner torched the frame out. I think I am going to have to box the frame, and start over. Any thoughts?
