I learned by OJT - On the Job Training.
I bought a JC Whitney headliner, a nice one, and soaked in the sun the morning of install day.
Then slid rods in, no slits for me, installed the rods with liner into roof, snapped the rods into place, then stretched the liner to the edges, and rolled the edges over letting the 'dinosaur teeth' grab the cloth.
Center of roof rails first, then moved to window centers, then to corners.
Installed trim about the roof, done.
Thumb was sore. Had a little wrinkle on sail panels, but you don't see them at night ...
Liner came out looking good, taut and cloth pattern aligned with rail - I wasn't trying for this, just worked out this way.
I later learned others were using glue to hold the edges - didn't know this at the time.
