Sorry no pictures, but I do have some tips from my experience. This is for a non-sunroof car.

- The bows are different lengths. Label them when you take them out so that you can put them back in the same order.

- This is not a job for a cold day. Warmer temperatures will make stretching the headliner smooth much easier.

- Don't break the flimsy little board at the back of the roof that keeps the headliner off the vents. You'll never get the headliner to sit flat at the back if the board is broken (as I know now). It is very difficult to pull the board off the clips without bending it too much, but I'm told it can be done.

- Use binder clips or something like that to help position the headliner along all the edges before you glue it. You'll need lots of them.

- Rubber cement is good for helping to position the headliner, but you'll need something stronger to permanently hold the headliner in place, especially at the front and rear windows where you have to pry the window seal over the lip with a cord.
