ABS Headliner

Just put my abs headliner up from Mid Fiftys. Went up with a little struggle but not bad. Fits nicely except where the edges meet the the step in the roof all the way around. Its certainly not even and looks unfinished. I have the rubber from the old hard board liner, I think i'll take it back down and try using that rubber to give it a more finished look. Has anyone else tryed that to finish iot off or done anything else?

trim

I was talking to the upholstry guy about this today BOB. I put scupting foam on my abs liner with black tweed and yellow stuff like is on the seat. Looks great but the edge you are talking about. He said he would trim it out some how. I' ll let you know what he comes up with.

I'm thinking the rubber should extend all the way down to the floor to take care of rear wall board. Did someone cut this or am i missing a piece i can buy? Or what did you use? Thanks

The Custom cab went to the floor. You can get the long rubber part from Midfifties.
