Unfortunately, I got my new headliner, I saw it was actually trimmed as shown below: the new headliner have the sides and rear back over like my old one did 2005 build date).

If you use dark fabric, sure to use high quality or else it will fade and can stain from glue through. High quality especially stuff rated for is thicker and UV resistant. Any upholstery can help you with re-covering the backing but it#039;s best if you the headliner from the car yourself. the old fabric (or using thumbtacks to it up) is a temporary solution because have dust and lint will prevent the glue making direct contact the old fabric and I believe that the broke down and separated in my

My new one also had 4 clips in the more detail on this This picture was taken a wide angle lens so distorted but you can see the horns at the bottom caused so much trouble.

While it#039;s to not pre-install the brackets, it#039;s for 2 big reasons: They#039;ll hold the up during installation and because the anchors can move around their brackets. If the anchor out the side by going diagonal, gone until you remove the again. If you#039;re unlucky, be stuck inside the body and until you go insane.
