  1. Thanks Bill Not sure how I missed that in my headliner searches.
  2. Going to begin installing a new headliner in my '65. When I purchased the car the interior was made up of parts from two different cars with many parts in boxes. I have two questions regarding the install: The front and back edges of the headliner is stapled to thin wood strips. I am missing some sections of wood strips. I am going to make some pieces to replace what is missing. What holds the wood strips to the car? The instructions in the body manual state that the headliner should be held on around the doors and quarter windows with a plastic retainer. I do not have any plastic retainers. The instructions read: "11. Install plastic retainer along pinchweld flange of door and quarter window opening." Does anyone know of an alternative for the retainers or whether glue will be enough? Thanks Doug
  3. Thanks Tom Mine are long gone. I will grab some plastic body push pins to act as a replacement.
  4. I have what you’re describing to hold the conduit to the door. Is that right? Are they the same?
  5. I have the hardware to attach the ends of the conduit to the door and jamb, but what goes in the holes the length of the conduit to keep it closed. Thanks Doug
  6. Gene, I received your package. Thanks again for sending me the part I needed. Attached are pictures of the mirror control assembled so others can see how the parts come together. Doug
  7. Thanks Tom Yes, I need the thick ring I circled in the prior post. I’ll get a better picture of what I have. I believe I have everything in Gene’s picture.
  8. Much appreciated Gene. I will send you my address. Just to confirm, I have circled the part I’m missing in the attached picture. That’s a spring clip?
  9. Thanks Gene I tried what you explained, but can’t see how the ring hooks the handle. I found the attached picture online. It shows a second ring which I’m guessing is the part I’m missing. Now I just need to find that second ring.
  10. I am trying to put together the remote mirror on my 65. I am thinking I am missing a part. The parts I have are shown in the attached picture. I can't figure out how to attach the toggle/cable mechanism to the plate which mounts to the door panel. I thought the round part shown in the picture would do it, as it has screw holes which align with the holes in the door panel plate, but the toggle just slides right out. I could not find anything in my shop manual or any pictures when searching this forum. What am I missing? Thanks Doug
  11. Adjusting the windows on my 65. When the side window is completely closed, where should the glass land against the weatherstrip. Cross-section of the weatherstrip shows two slotted areas where the glass could seat (see picture). Should the glass seat against the slot bordered by the large section of weatherstrip (#1 in the picture) or should the glass seat between the two smaller sections of weatherstrip (#2 in the picture). Thanks
  12. Never mind. I found a set for sale online which had the same plates, so they appear to be factory.
  13. I’m going to install the door strikers after painting my 65. There are two plates that go between the striker and the pillar (see picture). They look to hold the striker from sliding on the pillar. Are these factory? I couldn’t find them in a diagram in the body manual. Thanks Doug
