Hi Gang;
I'm at the point where I'm ready for the headliner to go into my 63 Impala SS Coupe. I live in Harpers Ferry, WV. I was going to attempt it myself, but have had a change of heart and would rather pay an expert to do the job right (hopefully). I can't seem to find anyone in my area qualified to do the job. The car is not drivable at this time (seats are out). I'd rather have someone come here to do it. Any leads from anyone in my area? I'm ready to do it now....thanks in advance. Bob

Can't help you with a recommended installer, however, it is going to be difficult to find some one to do a home visit to do this job. Most want to do it in their shop, where they have access to whatever will be needed to do the job properly, which includes a steamer to get out the wrinkles. Get your seats in, and then take it to an auto upholstery shop. If you can't find one on your own, then ask one of the local new car dealerships who they use.

Never argue with an idiot. He'll drag you down to his level, then beat you with experience.

I understand what you're saying and agree. I would be willing to drive the car to a shop for the installation, but would like to go to a place with experience and expertise with this type of headliner. The new car dealers I've spoken to weren't able to offer any useful recommendations. Thanks for your reply.

Do a Google search for auto upholstery shops in west Virginia, and a number of shops show up. Give them a call, or go look at their work. Also, ask on some other websites, such as the Oldsmobile. Our cars are not that unique that a Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Buick, or Cadillac is that much different.
