Default Interior help, new headliner

Need a new headliner for 36 5 window coupe. Looks like Cartouche from Mac's is the only one offered? Had a LeBaron kit 10 years ago but all had to be removed for total paint project. Guess they are out of business? Thanks for suggestions as always.

I installed a Cartouche in my 5 window about 10 years ago. No problems. The fit was perfect.

I have heard from a well respected Ford guy that if you'd never installed a Lebaron kit, you're likely to be pleased with a Cartouche.
I can't imagine they could screw up a headliner.
I got their samples for the years I restore and was so sadly disappointed in the quality and non-authentic appearance of the materials, well, I won't order from them.
But again, I can't imagine a head liner should be much of an issue if you're pleased with the material they offer.

I put a Cartouche kit in my '40 two-many door last year. Though not authentic as Kube notes; the headliner fit well and turned out very well for an amateur installation.

I wish I could recommend someone but sorry, I can't. I knew LB was going out about a year early so ordered a number of kits that I thought I'd need. When they are used up, I'm not certain what I'll do.
Sorry I can't help
