Thank you Limey. I will post pictures of the headliner when I receive it. If I end up needing them I would like to buy them + postage from you.
I`m not going to install the headliner until after paint but trying to get everything together, this summer I hope.

zucchi, I`m replacing my radiator with a three core aluminum with duel fans- I have deleted my sport vinyl roof,
convert the rear brakes to disk . I am going to mount a hood tach like the GTO  and run American racing Torq-Thrust ll
with Cooper- cobra tires. I have already installed duel exhaust 2 1/2 with thrush hush mufflers.  I have moved my battery to the trunk and installed a ford type starter solenoid.

i read that you're deleting your sport roof ... I'd like to install one one mine, Any chance you still have the trim piece that goes to the rear of the vinyl ??

Now the kids have grown and I finally got a 75 Laguna a few years back. I'll never sell this one as my son would have an absolute panic attack if I did. Looking forward to seeing yours completed. Keep the progress reports coming.

like that !!!

Man, I had a 76 that looked EXACTLY like that !! I miss that car - it was my first and I bought it new. Kept it 10 years. Sold it in '86 for a Monte Carlo SS. I drove the hell out of it and it got rather rusty ( mid-atlantic / northeast climate salty roads :-( ). I now have another 76 i found in '08 white w/ blue interior and black stripe and no sport roof. I'd like to re-do this one to look like that someday. What engine is in yours ? and what color interior ?

76LagunaS3- I know I haven`t gotten rid of it, I just can`t put my hands on it. I`ll look and dig and see if I can find it.

Yeah, I fell in love with that car the second I saw it in some guys front yard with a for sale sign on it. I was 19 at the time and bought it on the spot. He was asking $500 for it and I ended up paying $450. One of the best purchases I ever made. Do you have any pics of your 76? I'll start another thread showing pics of my 75 Laguna as I don't want to hi-jack this thread anymore than it already has.

All the info we have is listed on the website.

If you don`t see the info your looking for we don`t have it.

That also means they are not important for fitment.

The manufacture always list the details that will be important to determine if the part will fit your vehicle.

                          That was no help at all.

This portion of the thread is timely, as I will be doing a headliner install this winter (after my roll cage is complete).

I have a kit from Rock Auto on order and it should arrive within the next few days;  expected ship date is Feb 6.   I can report out what is included in the kit.

K

Here's what arrived today.

I don't have my old one out so I'm not quite sure what all is involved yet (other than what has already been posted here).

Not sure what the smaller separate square of material is for, unless it is sail panels.

Thank you Keith for the pictures, like others said the extra material is for sun visors . Is there any way you could take a closer picture of one of the ribs with clips ?
Do the clips look large enough to engage the T slots in the roof?
Thank you.
