lets talk headliners,once you have your bows in
the correct order,put them in the listings in the new headliner.trim away about 2" from end of bow
(listing) or bow loop. this way, when you pull side to side you will not bunch up the listing
at the end of the bow. START by installing the bows.
be carefull of the bow next to the dome lite
cause those plastic clips that hold the wire of that bow can break very easy.use a little vasaline
on the cotton listing to push on the plastic clips sometimes a small hammer might help
be carefull you dont hit the headliner fabric.
NOW center the headliner. most headliners have a center line. if not you should make one.
use a good spray glue like 3m 8080 or 8090
8080 is best.spray front windsheild headliner
(clip),and 3-4" of front fabric.
PULL good,(NOT TO RIP FABRIC)INSTALL 6-7"on each side of rear view mirror
DID I MENTION.... dont forget to put the screws
back in the holes for your visors,coat hooks,and dome light?
once installed,(headliner) how are you gonna find the holes.(just feel for the screw,then take it out).
then go to the rear.glue both fabric and clip,
pull(NOT TO RIP FABRIC).then do your 4 corner
glue,then pull to the corners with the fabric
you might need a hairdryer to soften the fabric
once front to back ,then corner to corner.
then go side to side(in that order)
