Mach1 - interior upper rear panel to rear window
#11
SC,
In my installation, I removed both the front and rear windshields. The headliner in both the front and rear window areas is folded over the edges of the seating surfaces of the windshields. I believe this is very important to keep the headliner tight front and back. I’m not saying it’s completely necessary, but in my findings, it is best.  I have attached a few photos from my installation. Hope it helps.......
Thanks, Jay

If they can R&R the rear window I will let them do it!  The headliner is not something I want to tackle myself.

Engine302,
Sorry for hijacking your post.

Thanks!

I would also recommend both front and rear glass be removed. It aids in the stretching for installation and long term quality and fit. Without overlapping the window flange with time it will relax and become very loose lengthwise in the car. I would talk to your upholstery person. Maybe remove yourself and have the car flatbed towed to his shop. Have a mobile glass installer come in and install after headliner is in place.

That's pretty much how I did mine.  I'd had my glass out for years getting everything repaired - windshield got destroyed as I removed it, though.  As I was putting the interior back in, I did the headliner first, then had Safe-Lite bring a new windshield to install, and the guy wound up helping me pop-in the rear glass afterward (last job of the day, so I hooked him up with a couple beers and really good tip since he basically did the rear glass for 'free').
