take apart interior trim pieces, then take out the headliner,, dont really need to prep it if you go with good spray, get the PERMENANT spray adhesive, not he temporary stuff. then overlay the headline, fold back and start ant one end. spray about 3 inches then press down the fabric smoothing from the inside out. working out all creases. 3M makes a good spray.. its called fabric adhesive,, its srays out sorrta like spidermans web! then cut the edges about 2 inches long and tuck em up... shouldnt take over an hour

Any hobby or auto body store should have something that would work.

I've never used it, but Permatex products are usually good. I would just go with that.
