FYI again, buy new plastic clips for the bows. They are brittle and once the liner is in place you can't tell if the break....which they will. Its $20, and then you know they will be good.

Plastic clips? I didn't see any clips at removal. Windlace on sides, plastic trim that stretched full length of windshield that pinched headliner, rear was windshield gasket. Metal tabs on roof that hold the bows in place.

Pretty happy with the headliner job. Esc. the price I got it done for. Guy was super cool and waited around for me well after he closed so I could pick it up after work.

My carpet was from Auto custom carpets, was not impressed with fitment or quality....assuming you still need carpet for the chevette, I would look elsewhere.

Ordered up new trunk weatherstrip and lower coil mounts for the front. Hoping to get the rear window in soon and get the deck lid and rear seat reinstalled.
