I bought a headliner from a 70 fb for my 69 - but all I really needed was the ribs. They are color coded on the tips, is there a color order to installing these things? I plan on installing a repo headliner, and know the job aint the funnest, but am not sure about the rib/support order...

I believe it is the widest (longest) in the front working to the shortest in back.

If there's any rhyme or reason to the color coding, I've never been able to figure it out. What I've always done if I don't know the order is to just experiment until I get the tightest fit for all 3. The back one will be obvious, as only one will fit. The other 2, just place them where they're tightest.

Thanks for the tips - I pretty much had figured on the trial and error method, but Ill try the narrower to wider thing first just in case....
