Headliner Install

Anybody put a headliner in a 1960 F100? Whats the trick? I got one from Dennis Carpenter and as soon as I put a little pressure on it it cracked. This thing must have been laying around a long time and was brittle.

I misted the back of the pieces with water from a spray bottle. Let it set for a while 30 or 40 minutes then slowly formed it to the cab using a short pipe with foam insulation around it. Still got a small crack by the dome light. Mine was from Carpenters, the none perforated style.
Good luck in your quest!

Bring it out to Western Washington. We're having a month of the 'Pineapple Express' where warm and VERY moist weather comes up from Hawaii. It hasn't stopped raining for a couple weeks and in my quite open and unheated shop, every cardboard box feels wet even though it's under a good roof. Yesterday I had a master cylinder fall through the bottom of an almost new box when I was returning a core. That headliner would bend at 90 degrees and not crack...........

So I emailed Dennis Carpenter about the problem and of course they never heard of that problem. They wanted pictures and they sent me a new one. I'm glad they stand behind what they sell. I'll have to figure out a way to install the new one because it will never bend that much.

We do live in a low humidity area. I think that is the problem. Maybe you could utilize the household steam iron and make it think its in GB's work shed or Hawii.
Thats very cool that D.C. replaced it for you.

Yes we do live in a dry area. I'm going to make it think it's in a rain forest. It's going to be covered anyway. (when it's dry)
