|Our "Inside" guy|
|Trying to eliminate any potential scratches|
I had the glue, Mike furnished the spray gun (and a fair amount of experience), Noel was the "inside guy", Michael, Rodney and I were in charge of getting itinto the car and lined up to the center line. I must say, it went off without a hitch. Mike first started spraying the glue and immediately realized that we needed to thin it significantly.

Once we felt like it was right, we all grabbed a corner, Noel assumed his station inside of the car and we carefully passed it through the rear hatch.
|Aligning the headliner to the center line.|
With Rodney in the front of the car, standing where the engine goes, he could easily manage aligning the front edge with our center mark and I was able to align the rear. Mike and Michael kept the sides from sticking to themselves or anything else and Noel began gently pressing down the center line from fore to aft.

Rodney's MGB was running again and my headliner was in, all in all, it was a good day and a lot of fun hanging out with good friends.. so good, in fact, that we ordered pizza and opened some beer.
