I was really hoping to pay someone to do a Michelangelo on the  
headliner by gluing new fabric on in place. Are you saying that's  
impossible or not advisable?

I'm two thirds of the way to removing the headliner backer already,  
having removed the A and B pillar trim, all the grab handles, the  
sunshades, and the sunroof trim. All that's left is the C pillar  
trim. What was stopping me was my failure to see a way of removing  
the glued in place backer without destroying it.
