Voice of > experience here, trust me on this one. Yeah, don't bother I used to recommend this method ... Until it sagged *again* :( Sewing pins seem to work alright, as long as you push them in with confidence and leave them. In your case, pull the headlining back to the recess above the rear seats and tack in there towards the top of the recess. Smooth along the top of the recess and tack up at the rear (perhaps the sides, too). Smoothing the excess right to the top of the boot, tack again there. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
