Thanks for the help on the past couple questions guys, it was a long day of Vair' work!  The generator mount problem was quickly solved by some of you... I had the generator on the wrong (drivers) side of the mounting holes... move it a half inch to the right and put the bolts in from the other side and voila!  Thanks!  The exhaust donut removal was not such an easy thing... the advice to chisel at the center helped a little but it still took a very long time and a lot of work to get them out, but they are done.

In the next day or so I'll be starting to install my new interior.. and my biggest concern here is the headliner.  Can anyone give me (or direct me to) some good advice on how to do this?  It's my first one.  This is an early coupe, but I'll be doing the 65' Corsa later this year as well.  I've seen lots of goofed up headliners and I don't want mine to become one of them!

I'm also going to be installing all new upholstery, door panels (transferring my old nail strips), and carpet from Clarks.....   these are nearly all new things for me to try so any advice is welcome, but the headliner is the one thats really got me worried.
