67 tempest I only had 4 bows, 2 before the dome light 2 behind. I used a 1/8 straight rod in the center along the support. I started in the center and worked forward then worked to the rear, then snugged up from side to side, used a hair dryer ( thanks honey ) to work it a little as well. If you have four bows you should be good.......

And if your headliner has 6 listings ( seams, pockets, sleeves, whatever you call them) you must have got yours from the same dummy on Ebay as I got mine from, 66-67 and two styles of sail panels. Get plenty of spray adhesive for the edges.
