Any problems installing an ABS headliner in their G-body? Thanks.

I bought one from OPGI. Was advertised for my 1978 Malibu. Received it and began to install. At the time of install I had ALL the glass out of my car. Fed it through the back window. After I had the headliner in position at the sun visors it hung out the back window by an inch or more. Called OPGI and they said I would have to trim the board. Asked them how I could do that when the fabric is attached already and glued to the back side. They refused to take it back. I WILL NEVER DO BUSINESS WITH OPGI AGAIN. A lot of what they advertise they do not carry yet (they advertised to "test" the market) and IMO a lot of their parts are garbage. I went to Dixie and never looked back. Totally different experience with them.

On another note about the board. Since I was stuck with it I removed all the fabric and will probably recover it. I do have concerns that they are heavier than the OE foam boards. My worry is it may sag due to the weight. Thought about putting some hook and loop (velcro) on the topside of the headliner and the inside of the roof to help some of the situation. Time will tell.
