Yes, once you get it positioned cut and leave about 2" hanging over. You can tuck most of that up over the side.

Re: Headliner install write-up

Great write up and pictures... one little hint regarding, dome light. sun visor etc. mounting holes. install the Screws only. Finding them is easy , a quick X cut with a razor blade on the head .. presto . no more searching for the predrilled mounting holes

Dave or someone, do you think that you could post more pics? I just purchased a 70 Chevelle without a headliner and all the trim in a box... I dont know what goes where.
Thank You very much.

Re: Headliner install write-up

Another thanks for you, Chris. I just replaced a headliner in a '67 Chevelle and after first checking out your great write-up, especially the photos, the job went a whole lot smoother.Even after 2 years, your advice still works!!

Kent, do you still need pictures? I have my headliner out and going to start installing it later today. I'll probably only install the bows today as I haven't been able to find a good adhesive to use yet. I can take some pictures as I go to show you where the pieces fit.

Re: Headliner install write-up

Hey Chris great write up and pics. We put one in our 68 ss using your pics and directions and it sure went alot smoother. For anyone scared of doing it yourself it really wasn't that bad and like Chris said getting the clips to snap in is one of the worst parts. Thanks Again!

Re: Headliner install write-up

Chris,
Appreciate the tips and pics. I installed the headliner in my 67 a couple of weeks ago.
Looks fantastic.....and saved me a bunch of money.

Re: Headliner install write-up

Hey Chris-Thanks much for the A-One pics and advice! My '71 coupe arrrived with no interior to speak of- my rod holes are all rusted and I can't tell which ones were used.I can figure out the order of the rods from front to back, but can't tell which holes. Should they be a certain distance from the roof etc.? Please give me any clue you can think of! I'm pretty much flying "blind" here. Thanks Ken
