1966 gto interior restoration questions

Hello everyone, i'm new to this site, and this is my vdery first posting, I bought a 66 gto in 2010, and when i bought it it had no interior inside of it, being that im 28 and i wasn't around when these came out and this is my first gto restoration i have a few questions. first does anyone know where i can find some interior a pillar moldings? also how do the sail panels go on? do they wrapp around the headliner retainer bar in the back on the b pillar that is held on by two screws? then the 3m taped the bar on the top..... or is there a site that shows pics and does a walk through? thanks

Most every part for the interior can be found at ames or performance years. I have a convertible so I am no help on the rest.

The moulding you are talking about on the a-pillar is called windlace, it goes from the top of the kick panel back to the c-pillar and clips over the headliner. You mention a b-pillar, is your car a hardtop (24217) or a post (24207)?

Windlace, as Randy said, is readily available from various resto companies......I was TOLD that the MUSTANG resto windlace also fits well, and is available in many more colors/shades......E

I have a 66 as well. I recommend an interior pro, I had an interior shop here in NE PA put my headliner, sail panels and windlace in for $175. The rest of the interior is pretty easy DIY.
