This may be a silly question but are the plastic headliner strips supposed to be snapped into place or slipped on from the end? I tried just snapping a scrap piece onto one of the rails for a test and it was a real pain. My strips are reproductions.

Chris.

can you slide them on with the front and rear windshields in?

I've never tried the repro ones, but all the originals I have messed with snapped onto the metal bows.

If the package tray is removed, I think I can slide them on from the back.

I've wondered if the originals were more pliable than the repros. I'm afraid I'll damage something if I try snapping these on. did you have to fight the strips to get them on?

You did have to use a fair amount of pressure to snap them on, but if you tilt the strip to one side, it will go on much easier.

I asked Mopar Mel too since they were his repros and he concurred. Has anyone found another supplier for these strips?
