    Agreed, but I couldn't figure out how to link to it. They are photos posted by Straight Laced Upholstery on Facebook in 2015.

    Additionally it may not have shown in the previous pictures but there’s one more measurement, a thin backer board It’s all attached to so let’s call that measurement ‘I’ and it is about 8 and 3/4” BB470A73-DFCA-43FA-903E-C76CFB39B065.jpeg

    Here’s another look, it’s thin stuff and you can see it has the same material that is on the door panels, like a green clothlike almost furnace filter material... 3A053380-6B8A-4F5F-9FBF-C17313F9A209.jpeg

    I just got my Aristocrat running. It had been parked since the 1980's. The nice thing about a barn find is it is very complete and original, though the interior is shrunk, twisted, and in need of replacement. However complete, the panels that set on top of the inner wheel well have disintegrated., so I will need those measurements before I am done. I plan to make line drawings of the other pieces, both for my resto puposes and for prosperity. The silver portions of my headliner had fallen off the roof. They appear to be 1/2" ribs, but the color is badly faded.
    I will add to this thread as soon as I can.
    BTW, I came looking, but can't find, the head diameter of a 392 exhaust valve. Somebody said it was in the FAQ's, but I can't even find that.

    My Aristocrat. It's foam backed on the sides (the cover panels were gone already) and the back side of the headliner panels had a thin foam sewn on the back side.
    Would like to find the correct color for the headliner panels. It appears to be a silver.
