    Headliner "Hold-down" Strips

    Hi All - I've posted this to our brethren on pelican.....

    I am about to install a new headliner in a 1970 coupe. I would like to find a source and or a part no. for these strips:

    They appear to be constructed from a type of cardboard/paper material.
    Dims: 29mm (1 1/8") wide x 2.4mm (3/32") thick x 280mm (11") long. They are located at the base of
    the "C" pillar where the headliner transitions to a contact area under the parcel shelf cover They were
    originally held in place by spiral nails (?). I believe some form of sheet metal screw as a viable replacement
    for the nails would be a logical upgrade. Any help or advice is appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.
    Cheers
    JB

    They're not totally necessary but if you want to use them you need to make your own or reuse old ones. I don't think they're available.

    exactly even the factory did use them only when needed...there is also a steel rod version of it. both shown here

    your old ones could be brought back into shape by butting them in an hot/ humid environment for some time and once they are shapeable simply flatten them(press between two flat boards) and let them dry

    I ended up using an old steam iron to flatten them out & they appear to be serviceable. Any suggestions as to any form of further pre-installation treatment (such as a varnish, epoxy, or shellac) to give them a tad more rigidity?

    Thanks Gents & Cheers
