<!-- s:?: --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_question.gif" alt=":?:" title="Question" /><!-- s:?: --> My husband has put removing the interior in my hands. The instruments panel, seats and carpet is out. I can't seem to figure out how to get the lights on each side of the back panels out. I'm try to keep the headliner intact to us it as a pattern for when we start putting the car back together. Also, there is a cloth covered panel between the doors. I can't figure out how to get it loose from the body. I've studied the Cord service manual and looked at the newsletter index (which is only from 1954 to 1991) and can't seem to find any articles on the tricky removal of these parts.

Open to all ideas. Thanks.

The panel between the doors is a piece of wood that fits into a channel in the body. It is held in place by sheetmetal screws. The padding and fabric is then tacked into place over it. You'll need to peel back the fabric to get at the screws.....the fabric is a simple piece so it isn't a great necessity to save it for a pattern.

1. To remove the interior dome lights, grab the center bar and twist counter clockwise to remove the outer bezel and moon stone. You'll then see the screws that hold it to it's mounting.
2. Spread or unfold the windlace around the doors and remove all the tacks. This will expose the tacks holding the headliner and also the center door pillar cloth. Be careful of those old tacks, they're rusty and like to stick your fingers. Use a small tack remover or make one by bending the tip slightly and grinding a small slot in it.

A magnet is handy for cleanup.

Maxie replied the topic: Headliner secrets
Thanks for your past suggestions on the interior lights and door posts. Everything inside the skeleton is out, with the exception of the headliner. When we visited with Sid at his house last November, when we picked up the car, he really had some tales to tell. So much to listen to, too much to absorb. I do remember his saying that he had sewn the headliner 2 or 3 times before he got it right. He said that it had to go in the right way. (No joke!) Well, I've looked at this headliner from front to back and side to side. The sides are now loose. I do see the rods inside what I thought was cording. It appears to be tack onto the front edge of the wood ribs in the ceiling. My guess is that I have to take it down starting in the front and working to the back. We have taken many pictures and written notes and make diagrams. I just hope that when it comes time to put it back together that it goes up the right way. I don't think that I am a patient as Sid must have been.

Any suggestions?....................Thanks................sheri

To remove the headliner, remove all welting around doors and windshield, by unfolding and removing tacks. Next, starting from the front, revove all tacks around windshield, and along sides of panel nearest the windsheild. Drop down this section of headliner and you will see the tacks holding the first bow to the roof wood. Remove and proceed backward the same manner, bow by bow. The side lights have tacks around openings, and you will have to remove the rear shelf tray and rear window trim to complete. When your done, you should have all sections attached together. To re-install, reverse order. If you get a small wrinkle, use hot water or steam to shrink.

Thanks, Pat, I really appreciate you responding. You confirmed what I thought to be true about starting in the front and slowly working to the back. It is truly nice to have someone to ask questions of and get answers. It's nice that members share their knowledge. I hope you don't mind more questions in the future.

We look forward to meeting you in Auburn..............Thanks.........sheri
