Okay, For 5-Years I Have Been Racking My Brain Trying To Figure Out A Headliner. I Didn't Want Cardboard Or ABS, Graybeards Headliners Are The Best But Weren't In My Budget. I Came Across Some Rolls Of Vintage 50's-60's Laminate At A Yard Sale And Decided To Start Experiment. Cutting This Stuff Was An Issue So I Went With The "ShopBot" CNC Router. The Prototype Is Now Installed In My Truck. I'm Calling These Kits "Ford-Mica" 6-Piece Kits That Will Include A 4-Piece Headliner And 2-Door Panel Inserts. These Are Durable Kits Available In Hundreds Of Styles, Solid-Colors, Patterns & Woodgrains. These Can Be Rolled-Up And Boxed Greatly Reducing The Shipping Cost. Some Of You Might Like These, Others May Tell Me That I Belong On The H.A.M.B With This Crap. Please Check Out All Photo's Before Rendering Judgement. LOL... Image Image Image Image Image

My Camera Isn't The Best, But You Get The General Idea. I Was Hoping To Have Some Red, & Cream Colored Kits Made Up In Time For "Slickstock" But It Doesn't Look Like I Will Have The Time...

Personally, I think they look great. Not wild about the pattern, but I guess that can/will change. Any idea of the price point yet?

I love it! But I'm a HAMB'er so my opinion may be a little skewed. Do you have anything in a white or mint green with the pattern shown? Price?

I like it also. The pattern is something I could get used to. If it is formica, then there are 100's of patterns and finishes correct?
How much chance of warping after 100+ degree heat with the windows up?

Probably Well Over 200 Styles, Colors & Finishes Available. Some Are More Expensive Than Others. As Far As Heat & Warping Goes, Early 1950's & 1960's Travel Trailers Were Lined With This Stuff And Literally Baked In The California Desert With No Problems. It's Been Well Over 100 Here All Week And No Issues. I Think It Can Get Brittle After 40 Or 50 Years After All It Is Laminate. The Best Thing About This Stuff Is That Mice Will Have A Hell Of A Time Chewing Through It To Make A Nest And Their Pee Would Just Bead-Up And Roll Off Of It Rather Than Soaking-In. :lol:

I think it looks great. I wouldn't subject anyone to the HAMB. If it doesn't have a 350/350 it ain't sh!t to those guys. Never seen a place so totally dedicated to one brand, starts with a C

I'm Working On Getting A Template For The Early Model 2-Piece. I Noticed That The Back Piece On The Earlier Trucks Is A Better Fit. We Ended-Up Adding 9/16" To Each End Of The Back Section Of The 64'-66' Design So It Would Span From Door Pillar To Door Pillar. Now Theres No Gap And No Need For Those Unsightly Extra Screws Next To The Window Rubber To Hold It Back And Tightly In Place. It Almost Seems Like Ford Engineered These Headliners As An Afterthought. :shock: ....

My 61Uni will be on your list, once it's running around.
Did you need my back section for a pattern?
I can bring it to SS...

Wimbldon White with red, black and gold boomerangs?

Yes, I Could Use A Pattern. Not Sure At This Point If I Will Make It To SS. You Only Live 1/2-Hr Away From Me So We Can Arrange A Meet..
