Here is a few shots of the back board attached to the upper panel, I used 1/8th rivets
The black vinyl laid out on the driveway, I found that a steam iron on medium heat and lots and lots of steam will take the wrinkles out of this heavy vinyl
Below you can see a step by step how I did this, it was pretty easy and I used a heat gun to soften the vinyl and help it stretch better. Also if your going to do this don't skimp on the glue, get the good stuff (3M) and use allot of it. Also Craftsman makes these little plastic clips that lock and are only about 15 bucks for a 4 pack, i found these to be a very valuable tool when glueing the corners down...just clamp them on and let it rest till the glue sets up. Also you can see in one of the photos I ran the batting around the back side...I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS. I had to redo this panel because the glue did not take hold on the back side, instead trim it flush with the front and then wrap only the vinyl around the back side. The second attempt was much better with no creases like you see in the final result and I will post pics of it later.

The trim is not centered properly in this photo but it is on the new panel, overall I am happy with what I have done here and proud of the fact that I did it myself

Looks like you done quite a bit of body work. Nice to see somone willing to save these old furys. I see your car is the mid year released color option Turbine Bronze. Would it be too mush trouble to get that paint code from you? I just signed up tonight on Cardomain. I too have a 66 Sportfury. Thanks Rex
Congrats on all the work you have done to her! A long shot I know, but as you can see I am in the UK. I have a 66 Sport Fury, among a few others, but she is missing the right hand front wheel opening moulding. Are you going to be using yours and if not, would you consider selling it? I have a friend in California that you could send it to if that helps. Either way, keep up the good work, will be great to see her finished. All the best. Graham.
Man, I have not updated for a long time and just noticed your post...do you still need the moulding? I have it but it isnt pretty...but should be able to be tweeked back into shape...let me know.. my email is firstname.lastname@example.org
LOVE THE ENGINE AND THE WHEELS,LOVE THE BODY-10 STARS
Nic Fury - 5 stars! The work you've done is real good.
