Ok so this is what the headliner will resemble. The front valance is done but two sides and a rear section will be formed and a center panel will be similar to this.

Back to the task at hand. Lots of body work ongoing rust prevention, and seam sealing.

Opted to fill the gaps with the LORD non sag seam sealer where the cage nut are on the bottom and top tailgates attach to the hinges to prevent water passing thru them and where the layers of sheet metal on the body meet. This seam sealer is the best sand-able product I have used so far.

Sliding window drip rail. Used two coats of the master series silver and two top coats of the ag111 and used these flux brushes and put a bend in them to hit the undersides. Will plug all remaining holes with seam sealer.

After lots of sanding using guide coat through 320 grit. Sprayed Evercoat polyester primer and wet sanded 800 grit. By using a little soap and water you can spray on the primed body part and simulate what the clear coat will look like and see further imperfections.

The floors needed filler where they were tack to the hat channels underneath the body and got them all smooth and prepped for Raptor Liner.
