Default Headliner Restore

The headliner for my 95 D21 KC is out and not nearly as bad as I thought it would be. My biggest fear was trying to get it out in one piece after I dropped it. As it turned out that was not the biggest problem at all. Once removed with the seats laying all the way back it went right out the passenger side door.
The trim pieces for the most part came right off with the aid of a trim removal tool. The biggest challenge was the two top back pieces one on the passenger side and one on the driver side. They were by far the toughest pieces to remove because of the clips seeming to be so far in and having to loosen the bottom pieces to get the top ones out. But all in all thanks to the board it was about an hour job. Now I have my headliner out and looking to recover.
Just a couple questions.
Besides cleaning everything up and vacuuming out all the leaves that are in the channels of the back windows. ( this truck must've spent a lot of the time in the forest) is there anything else I can do since all of this is pulled apart and my roof is fully exposed? Has anybody done anything with sound deadening ? like a Dyna-Mat? I live in Florida, anything to reflect heat? I don't want to get crazy with the thickness because I want to make sure that the trim pieces fit back correctly.

That's what I had heard too. I thought I would give it a try I didn't want to have to take the back window out. But I had no problem with the seats back sliding it right up the passenger door. And this is a king cab.

Hey Richard, now that you have the headliner out, can you tell me if there is a third hole in the area where the sun visor mounts?

I am trying to find other visors that have the extension that slides out when it is moved to the side window. I know that some of the passenger cars have two mounting holes, but most, and the newer Frontiers too I believe, have three screws.

Would be nice if I could expand my search.

Thanks in advance, Gary
