One piece headliner

Anyone using a one piece headliner from NPD? How is the fit/finish? Does it go all the way to the pinch molding that goes around the door opening? I've read if does not go under the front or rear window rubber is this right? Can you post some pictures of it installed? And last question I promise, lol, what holds it in place? Is it glue to the roof? Thanks!

'66 coupe 289 .030 over, Performer RPM, Holley 650, way to big crane cam, Canfield CNC stage 1's 2.02-1.94, probe forged pistons, ARP everything, toploader 4spd, 8" rear 4:10's w/mini spool. Best to date 12.95 @ 106 in the 1/4.

It looks like the TMI piece.
I can't comment on the quality as i have the Mustangs to Fear one, however, for mounting, it goes all the way to the rubbers front and back, and under the windlace side to side.
It is held in by the windlace on the side, the rubber front to back(it does sit underneath the rubber, easy to do with the windows in place), the rear view mirror bracket, and the sun visor brackets.
It is not glued in.

Ditto on the MTF one. I seem to remember a review of both the MTF and the TMI piece that a guy put on youtube quite a while back - perhaps its still there.

I bought mine from TMI and was very disappointed. While it went in easy, it seems they cut the material as close as possible at the edges and whoever cut it couldn't even hold a straight line. The original windlass didn't even come close to hiding the edges I called TMI and they were no help and didn't seem to care or have any ideas on how to fix it. After much research, I managed to find some deeper windlass that covered 98% of their poor work. A before and after pic is below

I am sure I would have considered the MTF headliner had I known about it.

I purchased a tmi unit for my car and the first one had a bubble on the passenger side and the replacement had bubbles all over it. Not to mention the fit along the perimeter was terrible. I ended up getting a full refund from CJ pony parts and ordering the mustangs to fear unit which fit perfectly and isn't vinyl bonded over fiberglass so there's no chance it will ever separate or sag. My honest opinion after going through this less than 1 month ago would be to skip the TMI unit and go right to the MTF liner.

Judging by the MTF fiberglass parts I have their headliner should be very nice.
