I got one right.. ok, 95% right about 1990, LM...   I used 3M yellow contact 
cement ...   my suggestion is not to use it, because when you let it dry, 
and then do the " Contact".... it sticks forever right there.  One chance, 
apply as you tighten the assembly, very difficult to do; oh suggest to take 
out the front seats, to get you wallow room.

I would now use and practice with Shoe Goo, which would give you a few 
seconds to adjust the fit after your initial stretch-out.  There are other 
modern, slower set-up adhesives, that would be my approach now.
I found Clarkes headliner to fit pretty well.

Oh, give it a few days after installing, I swear mine "shrunk" a bit and 
took a couple wrinkle-botches out of the liner.

hope this helps, ken campbell, max headliner in ioHuh?
