Before installing the headliner, the windlass must be mounted. I decided to order new windlass, because what I had was not original and it was not in the best shape. It is not very easy to replace this after the headliner is in place. So I ordered new ones from Habostad auto interiør. The same company I bougt the headliner from. Excellent quality. The windlass is held in place with the fixing rails, that also needed a makeover. They were very rusted so I sandblasted, primed and painted them. It took us one evening to install it on the car. It is important that it is mounted straight and in line with the dooropenings.
