Is it really necessary to pull the rear glass on a 65 fastback when replacing a headliner. Certainly it is necessary to pull the windshield, but I hadn't planned or thought it was necessary to pull the back glass. Anyone have some hands on experience with this? Thanks, Marshall

What holds the headliner tight is that it's folded over all the openings and glued. When you put the glass and windlace back on there's no way of it coming loose.
Just the glue itself is not going to hold when the headliner is pulled tight.

Is it really necessary....?
To specifically answer your question, no it's not really necessary according to the Ford Shop Manual. Is it a good idea? Sure..!

The manual directs you to tuck the headlining under the back window weatherstrip after applying trim cement. With the sail panels on a coupe, I can see where the FB is easier to install a headliner. I know it's blasphemy to not recommend the rear window removal, but I'm telling you what the Shop Manual says to do. Anybody who has a problem with it, take it up with FOMOCO! :sniping:
