I picked a new roof lining up for an EA/NA for $16.50 from a self serve wreckers. Had to pull it out of the old car myself but the job was actually quite simple. I would assume the EB would be similar.

it should do yes, you may need to make some bracket to hold it though but size wise will be the same

Sounds allot cheaper than what I done.

My roof lining was sagging at the rear wind shield. It cost me $80 to do it through ford.

It wasnt a new lining, they just took it to an upholsterer.

I've done this to at least a dozen different cars with the cloth roof lining.

Pull the lot out
Take the cloth off carefully (you can reuse it if in good condition)
If not, it will give you a template for a new one. SPOTLIGHT.
Scrape the old yellow type foam off. Do a good job or it will be a waste of time.
Buy a $9.95 can of trim adhesive from supercrap.
Put the cloth onto rooflining mold.
Fold cloth in half. Work from middle to out. Spray adhesive and press cloth to mold.
Do both sides.
Wait 30 mins
Stick it back in the car.



Works everytime.

i Believe for about 10 grand, you could get a panel shop to turn it into a convertible. That sure would solve the problem.
