Get some "Binder clips" (The kind you use to hold a thick stack of paper) from a office supply store and some 3M spray adhesive.
Let the headliner sit in the sun for a bit to warm up and stretch out.
Place the metal bows into the headliner and install the front one. Clip the headliner to the front windshield lip. Work your way back using more clips at the door lip. Once you are satisfied that it is centered and will fit, go back to the front and remove the clips. Spray some adhesive, replace the clips, work your way back. Use a hair dryer for small wrinkles.
Put the gasket on the glass.
Place some heavy twine or 14 - 16 ga wire in the gasket channel. Place the window on the car with the bottom of the gasket over the lip and while applying gentle pressure on the outside, pull on the twine to roll the gasket over the lip. It helps to have a helper, but I have done it alone.

2. While I have it off, I am contemplating installing a central dome light. Any suggestions on that mod? This would come from a 700 series Volvo with a "floodlight" when the doors are opened and individual driver/passenger focused beams.
Window installation question:
Is there any filler or sealant required to install in the rubber channel, or is it just an interference fit?

My window in my GT was misteriously shattered a few weeks ago. I have been looking and asking every Opel collector (from OGTS, to Opel Jim, Opels Unlimited, all Opel sellers on Ebay, craigslist.org, etc.) that I can find if they have a '73 GT Driver's Door Window that has the factory...

Does anyone know what the DC resistance of the rear window defroster is on the GT? I went to a junk yard today and purchased what looks to be a stock rear window with the defroster and tinted but it doesn't work, Shame because the shape of the glass was amazing.
Is there any company out there...
I am having a heck of a time reaching the right-most bolt of the passenger side defrost vent to secure it to the underside of the dash pad. Do I need to remove the glove box?
Also, there is a screw at the center of each vent... finding it difficult to get those in as well.
Any tips from...
