Does anyone know who makes the cloth headliners for 49 Hudson Stepdowns at a reasonable cost please.

Thanks very much. That has given me a few leads to follow up
these things are easy to install by the way. Start near the center with the bow that locks in place. Work forward then back rotating each bow into position, tucking it up under the metal strip on the sides as you go, then fasten and trim at the sides and end windows. Easier if windows are out, but can be done with them in. Originally they used tacks, but a product named 'Goop' at your hardware store has quick stick and will peel paint the next morning. Staple until it sets.
Keep it reasonably tight, and when you're done, put a steaming teakettle in the car until the wrinkles shrink out. Probably will need new windlace also. Kanter will send you samples to pick from. Stuff has a continuous tab that tucks in same as headliner at the top, and behind the panels at the sides. Use Goop or an adhesive of your choice.
Thanks for the advise. Re the glue probably not available in NewZealand. Trevor NZ
