Well, this is not really the start since I've installed the dash but that's another story.

http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,127894.msg1591275.html#msg1591275

Being a glutton for punishment, I decided to start with the head liner.  First I need to install the head liner retainers.  For completeness, here's that thread.

http://www.dodgecharger.com/forum/index.php/topic,130545.0.html

Then it's on to the dirty work.  Many have done this before me so I'll only show the highlights.  I did put all the screws in place before I started.
Pic #1 - The head liner in place with all the bows installed.
Pic #2 - To hold everything in place I went to Office Depot and bought a couple of packs of these clips.  $7.00 for a bunch.
Pic #3 - First round of tightening it up.
Pic #4 - Second round of tightening, notice anything wrong?  (hint, where's the dome light?)
Pic #5 - So, take it down and get the dome light wires pulled thru, I tried to do it without taking it down but I just couldn't make it work.  Back up again!

And that's where it sits today.  On to final pull and attach/glue it.  Wish me luck.

That looks really good. I did mine once only and it was about 20 years ago. I went through same hair pulling before gluing. It turned out superb in the end. Just think, you will have a new headliner that will last for years!

It better last for years, not doing this again!  I really hate working over my head.

Got the glove box hinge and door installed.   Inside rear view mirror mounted, visors intalled (they took a little work to keep them from falling down.)

Moisture barrier installed.  I just couldn't get the chalk rope to work right so used aluminum duct sealing tape.  That stuff sticks to everything but it will be hard to get off if needed.  That's life.  shruggy

Progress Looks great! Only you will know that duct tape is there, no one will see it, and it functions.
