911 head liner are not that bad to do . i have doen a hell of a lot of them in my shop . we start at the B-pillers and work our way to the rear of the car first then from the B-piller to the front of the car . get a good quality head liner ! i installed a cheap one that a customer picked up and it was a hell to get to look good . the money he saved on the head liner he ended up paying in labor and then some . i use the clips to hang clothes out on a clothes line just to kind of keep the head liner were it should be before we start to glue it and install the clips over the pinch welds .i think there called clothes pins ??? we also grind the clothes pins nose off so they will not slip off if you look at a clothes pin you will see what i'm talking about . we mark the center of the front and rear glass openings on the head liner and the cars body to center it . take your time and do one section at a time . its time consuming but not a hard job to do .

Windows need to be out.

962 Porsche described the sequence well.

A search on the technical forum will reveal lots of great info and pics of it being done.

Cheers
