need some advice-'65 headliner and exterior window trim

just wondered if anyone out there has removed/reinstalled a headliner in a 65/66 Gal? Kinda afraid I'll never get it back in straight if I try to take it out... Also, the exterior window trim- I have the little arrow shaped tool they sell to remove this stuff, but have no idea how its meant to be used- rather not damage anything, so thought I'd ask before I start fishing around for clips with it... Thanks in advance for any tips

Re: need some advice-'65 headliner and exterior window trim

nevermind- going to leave the headliner in(was thinking about removing to fix some trim studs that were stripped- pulling/twisting with vise grips got them out- threads in roof are fine, no signs of rust-now just need to get a few more studs)
The window trim tool works pretty well- if anyones interested, you just hold handle at angle(so one side of arrow shaped tip parallel to edge), slide until a clip is felt, swing handle back to less angle to push clip away from trim, at same time push trim down a bit to disengage clip,let go and it pops right up...found it is easier (NECESSARY actually) to start in the middle, first try I started in a top corner and chipped the glass(trim will cover it though- luckily).
Unfortunately, the lower clips are rusted off, will need to remove the glass to replace them. I had replaced glass in a 69 camaro years ago, someone showed me how to fish a peice of thin rope thru the goo that holds the window, tie handles on, with two people 'sawing' work it all the way around, and out it comes- fishing a cord or cable thru is the risky part, gotta push a wire thru, and its easy to chip the glass...
