I have a question, how easy is it to remove the headliners if want to install a roof rack after install? Or should I install the roof rack prior to installing the head liners?

What kind of a roof rack is it? Most roof racks attach to the top of the top, it has nothing to do with the inside of the top, where the Hothead Headliners go.

I was looking at the Maximus-3 JL Roof Rack System, SHORT Roof Rack and it rear bracket mount on the edge of the rear panel.

I would do the rack first and then cut the notch in the headliners. Just did mine a few days ago and trying to pull them off would have been a nightmare.

They cut real easy with an oscillating tool. Just don't cut all the way through the black fabric. After they are cut, trim them off leaving some overhang on the black fabric. Then use a little adhesive spray and wrap that overhanging black fabric around the exposed edge and you'll end up with a decent finished look.

I'll update with some pics in a bit

Ahh, I see. I don't have experience with cutting the Hotheads but I'm sure its not hard. I would not take them out, just cut where you need to cut. Good luck.

Hi,
I would definitely install the roof rack first. The headliners come out fairly easy if your hard top is very hot, but you would have to replace the 3M tape as in will never stick permanently again.
If you have specific questions please send them to: [email protected]
regards,
