Installing the headliner (from M&T). Had some problems with getting the vinyl tight enough- glue was really good and I didn't want to force the fabric. Second time I did get it nice and tight, pulling it hard but not enough to pull the rods down. Some threads recommend doing the front, then the sides, then the back. I was able to get it nice by doing the front, then the back, then the sides. This is my first time doing a headliner so maybe I just don't have the experience.
One thing I had my body guy do it weld a flat piece on the rear pillar so it is smooth, not indented. When putting the vinyl on, it was nicer than screwing around with the cardboard and the irregular surface. I also folded over the fabric where the headliner meets the pillar material. Looks a little cleaner I think.

I hope you have not forgotten to drill the holes for the pop out windows !? ( And for the cable for the heatet rear window if you have/want one and switched over to 12 Volt ) But it looks better this way , yes . Show us more pics from the next steps ! Jurgen
