Question 65 Impala Headliner Install?

What is the best way to go about this for a first-timer?
My old one is still in place so I can use that as a guide but I am looking for any experienced people to give me some do's and dont's.
Perhaps links to instructional pictures or videos?

Thanks in advance

Remove the headliner material slowly. You must mark every hole that the rods run into as there are 3 holes to choose from. Use crayon chalk or paint. Putting the rods back in the correct hole is very important for tightness fit. Paint the rods when out or still in place. They can rust and stain the headliner after many years. Set the headliner in the sun to make it stretch then begin at the front insert one rod then back in the same hole . Go front to back leaving sides loose till done then tuck in the sides and leave the car in the sun with windows up again heat to make it stretch then do the sailpanels very easy. Hope this helps.
