Default How many "bows" for a sunroof.

Hi fellow sunroof Tbird'ers,

I am in a pickle, I bought a 1960 sunroof as a unfinished project, and not soooo cool to drive around with out a roof linning, my car is with a trimmer at the moment and was asking about a bow in the centre of the sunroof slide panel.
We could only find two bows, one large and the other smaller, is there any other bows I should have?
The slide panel is just a flat metal frame, the centre is about 2" wide, does the vinyl attach to that? What stops it from sagging?
Questions questions and more questions.
The trimmer has made a new head liner but not sew'n yet, but cannot install till we find out the right bows in the cutting, also where could I buy the plastic seal that goes around the opening?
Or is it just plain?
Have noticed in some pic's early days that there is a white plastic type of mould that goes around the opening covering the edge, and others don't have it? Looks cleaner with this mould.
Would anyone have good pic's of the headliner in a sunroof please. And how the sew'n panels look together.
If you have, please send them to me via my email address. So the trimmer can compair it, WOW what a job!
Did not know it would be so hard to get it right.
Thank you and hope some one out there can help me.

Cheers guys'n doll's.
Thunder Downunder.
