[DML] Re: Robertsonian Headliners..

Thank you for criticizing my headliner. Anything else you'd like to
render a judgement on while we're here?

Why don't you make a list of the things you actually LIKE on my car --
it would be a much shorter list.

I stand by my original assessment: The headliners as installed in the
factory look silly and amateurish. I've never seen another production
vehicle with two headliners overlapping one another. A single piece
installation looks much more finished and professional.

Regarding that front plastic piece: In #5939 at least the fabric was
glued to it. I should know -- I was the one with a putty knife
scraping it off. Note that without such gluing the headliner is a
smidge floppy where it joins the A pillars (the sun visors are too far
inboard to hold it totally still). Movement isn't bad, but I bet
that's why Dunmurry glued the headliner to the front plastic piece.

What exactly don't you understand about the roof retainers? The parts
manual shows three of them, but my car only has two. The headliner
needs to flex up slightly to slip under the retainers. Once you figure
out exactly where to position each hand it slips right in. Took me 4
or 5 stabbings to snag both at the same time -- about a minute or so.
Was by far the easiest and fastest part of the overall installation.
