1967 MGB GT cant rails


Recommended Posts

I hate to ask more questions, but what exactly are the cant rails you need repaired? The framing around a door? If so, they need to be away from the entrances to get them back. Those pieces of off-white vinyl? Do you need assistance locating the decorative welting or beading that tops the door rails?

Images would be useful in this case.

Seeking to reclaim the cant rails above the ceiling. As of recently, the cant rails have taken on an off-white hue. The headliner is nice; it's made of wool and seems to be off-white or faded white. It's soft and fluffy, almost like flannel.

If we are referring to the front at side rails that support the headliner, I assume they are covered in place. The inside of my '67 was quite stock, and it was coated in vinyl that looks and feels like plastic. Currently in a fragile state. I have no idea how to take them off if they are really detachable.

C-pillar, left and right of hatch panels are masonitel-like cardboard with foam and vinyl covering. The hue is somewhat darker than white and closer to a very pale gray.

If they have what we term a "flock finish" in the United Kingdom, they may be refurbished by a skilled repairer.
After the desired color match has been achieved, the fibres are combined in a jar with a puffer attached to the top, and the new flock is sprayed from the jar.
Different flocks may be nmixed very similarly to paint, therefore this how to construct a seat but same idea for smaller objects.
