In the back above the sail panel, is there supposed to be a small angle to secure the end and the sail panel butts up to it? I ask because there was one on mine, and the rest looked like it was glued from the factory. But in the tack strip kit I got, it had the front and back strips, pieces for the wind lace behind the door, and 2 other pieces that look like they would go above the sail panels where this angle was.
Thanks!
Craig

There is a small piece of angle tack strip that is at the top of sail panel. The headliner tacks to it the sail panel covers it but is not attached to it. It just sits there. Sail panel is held by 2 clips on back and the dome light .

OK, thanks. . . mine appears to be a metal angle that holds the end of the headliner, which is screwed fast to the inner panel. There are also screws in the back of the sail panels, which the new ones do not have holes for - or holes for the dome lights. Thanks again.

The only holes that should be in sail panels are dome light ones. The interior trim one the roof rails and around the rear window hold the ends in place.
