    I have never done it. But I know it has been said that it is heaps easier to have the windscreen out as it laps behind the rubber.

    Maybe there is another way to do it though.

    I have only put the headliner in with the windows out. You need to pull the liner through the window space glue and clamp in place, then trim excess, then put in windows. Even hang the head liner up and let it sit over night clamped front and rear (with bulldog clips) I also ran mine under the rubber for the rear door.

    I took inspiration from Harry's pics - was a good job Harry.
    If its really cold you need to put a heater in the car while the headlining is stretching out and pull it as tight as you dare then pull i some more.
