Any headliner experts out there?
Greetings folks. I'm getting ready to take a stab at installing my headliner. Yes, yes, I know, most will recommend outsourcing it. However, I'm a glutton for punishment so will give it a shot myself. Before I dig in though, I've got a question for the experts.
I've looked at some very helpful write-ups of how some other folks have done it. Many details are similar but I've seen one key difference. Specifically, this relates to the raised section over the back seats. One approach seems to be mounting this directly to the roof, or perhaps on top of some foam/sound deadening glued to the roof. However, another approach is gluing it to the metal retaining ring which also holds the larger section of headliner. Basically, the recessed section would be mounted to the top side of the metal ring, whereas the larger section would be glued onto the bottom side of it.
Curious to know two things:
1. Which of the above methods (if either) is the "correct" way?
2. Why is the raised section a non-perforated material, whereas the balance of the headliner is the perforated snakebite material.
Thanks in advance.
