Mainship Headliner

I seem to have trouble spelling! I have a Pilot Sedan 34. I need to remove part of the headliner. Do I need a special tool?

It is probably a vinyl head liner stretched over channels. If so, you can pull a little corner of the material out of the groove of the track. Then pull it down carefully to expose the area. There is a tool with a roller that will push the material back in the groove and stretch it at the same time. Done right, you will not be able to tell it was touched.

I have been trying to remember the name of the headliner system that Mainship used. David Marchand has a Pilot 34. He is very knowledgeable. Maybe he will pick up on your thread. All I can say is that having removed some of the headliner, I was amazed at how easily it went back in.
