Re: Headliner install write-up

OK, yes I just glued the headliner around that horizontal piece. Make sure your sail panels will cover that seam. Mine did. The forward section of the sail panel will tuck behind the rear 1/4 interior panel and the rear should butt-up against the rear window lace. Again, I opted to put a push-clip in the rear of my sail panel (epoxied it on) and push it in the hole under that bar (as seen in your photo)

Re: Headliner install write-up

I have been going by your installation guide for the headliner and it is going pretty good,is there a good way to start doing the sail panel's.I have it all stretched out and clipped to let the heat straighten the wrinkle's out but,I'm not sure if there is a special way to start the sail panel's after i get the top glued.Thank's,kevin

Re: Headliner install write-up

I found gluing and clipping one edge at a time then allowing dry time worked best for me on the sail panels.

Re: Headliner install write-up

I only had the center ones too, I used a little Teflon gun oil to get the rods to snap back in.

You don't wont to break them I think they sell for about $35 bucks.

Re: Headliner install write-up

thanks.didn't see the point of the side clips as the headliner should hold the rods from moving front to back

Re: Headliner install write-up

I still haven't found my dome light screw holes, I marked the side holes with a black marker.
