Yes, that is gonna be very difficult if not impossible...we just put marine headliner in our 13' 1971 Boler this past weekend and the domed corners proved to be a real pain in the rear end...we got it up but neither of us are happy with the seams as we had to make curved slits to make it lay down, headliner is stretchy to some extend to help mold it to curves but the corners were to extreme even heating it with a heat gun would not make it conform to those...now we are looking for a solution to hide the seams. Maybe we will go with some Hidem if we can find something to match...

You could turn the tiles 90* to make the curve on the flat and use something else for the upper corners. I believe another member or two did the same thing, hopefully they will chime in with the details.

Could we say that another positive thing about the molded FGRV's is their positive curvature? It means that flat wall coverings cannot be fitted without stretching.

Scamp does a pretty good job with the rat fur in the corners, maybe they are not as tight as the '71 Boler. I do not think they had to stretch the RF too much, and they covered the cuts with 2 inch wide strips.
