I've got one  It's a Mk1 headliner frame, both sections and it's in excellent condition.  If that's in fact what you need, shoot me an email.

How was the old one black one attached?
Which direction you take depends on how original you want it to be. If installing the UK MK III> headliner as you stated all the glass needs to be removed but finding a good MK I/II headliner frame may be difficult. The other issue is by using the rods you have the MK I headliner you have will not have the gussets to run those rods through.
Maybe check out some other Aussie S's on the internet to see what they are using.

If in doubt, flat out . Colin Mc Rae MBE 1968-2007.

Fellow Minioids,  I picked up an Aussie Mk1 Morris Cooper S a couple months ago.  The headliner consisted of six 1/4" round steel bars that locked into a hole that was drilled into the perimeter of the inside roof support structure.  The steel bars were bent in a fashion to keep the headliner against the roof.  Much more simple than the frame structure, but I don't know how this is to work with my cream-crackle headliner.  This would require over-lapping the headliner to the window frames and gluing it.  The old headliner, which was not original, was heavy black vinyl.  So, did Aussie Minis have a different type of attachment system than UK Minis?  I wonder if I should try to hunt down a Mk1 frame style headliner structure.  Thoughts!
