87-88 Thunderbird headliner

I'm looking for an 87-88 Thunderbird headliner. I don't care if the fabric is bad as I'll be recovering it. I need an intact, straight board. I have a project in mind and a need a spare board, so I don't screw up the one in my car if it doesn't work how I want. Shipping and keeping the board from bending might be an issue but the local sources have kinda dried up.

Shipping would be stupid expensive/impractical most likely. The biggest issue would be keeping the headliner from bending in shipping.

It would have to be bent to match the stock board, and also have recesses for the sun visors.

Still looking? I'm about to pull the headliner out of my cougar if you want to make a bit of a trip for it I'm sure we could work something out.

Unfortunately that won't work, being that Thunderbird and Cougar have different rear roof treatments.

Still looking. There hasn't been an 87-88 Thunderbird in the junkyards near me in over a year.

I made a backer out of 1/8" ABS plastic for one of my cars. The only issue is needing a pattern to copy.
