    As luck would have it ran out of the head liner glue. 4 oz. can is not enough. So here is some pic's of how far I got. Still will have to trim off excess material. Left enough so I could get a hold of it and pull. Had a big bag of clothes pins. Plus tent pins. IMG_0118.JPG IMG_0101 (6).JPG IMG_0103 (4).JPG IMG_0104 (2).JPG

    Did not use her clothes pin. Had my own from another project where I need a bunch of them. Wish I had the plastic ones they have more strength than the wood one's. :lol:

    Yes it is a six bow type. Too bad I ran out of glue. If every one will notice I put plastic every where. Can't open a can of something with out getting it on me or dripping on something.

    I seen on your pics of your liner you used the little metal clips. Can you pull the liner tighter with them?

    Have not put the U clip's on Yet. Need more area pressed down. That is the reason for the tent clamp's and clothes pin's. Will install the u clips when done drying.

    Mine came with the clip. I used the clips to hold it in place until I was sure that's where I wanted it.

    If she even claims some of those clothes pins are hers and why in the world are you using them? I’m telling her that I told Russ not to, but he wouldn’t listen. haha

    I have been guilty of using her plastic bowls out of the cabinet. Used the fry tongs they worked grate in the shop. Also other various kitchen items over the year's. So clothes pin's are on my list. If it is missing she figures I got it to do something. :lol:

    Funny thing Big Mo part of the head liner was glued to the rain gutter Where the window trim is. I am not going that far. Don't know the reason for doing that Unless it was a quick way to install the liner at the factory.
