Removal of Headliner, A Pillar Cover and D Pillar Cover

Objective:

I want to hard wire my Escort 360 and I also want to install my front and rear dash cams. I have decided to use the rear fuse box to power both. I chose the rear fuse box instead of the one under the dash because I need to run the wire for the rear dash cam from the back and I believe that the rear fuse box will have more room to work in, will be easier to access (instead of being a contortionist under the dash) and easier to fit in the voltage regulator and other stuff.

I have the tools needed to pry or otherwise remove upholstery, panels, etc.

I need to know where to insert these tools to safely remove the headliner (along the windshield, down the side of the vehicle to the rear D pillar), remove the A Pillar, remove the D pillar and remove the Rear Window Panel.

Does anyone have specific experience doing this that can describe the proper way to do it without breaking something?

In the alternative can someone point me to a service manual or other document that illustrates or otherwise explains how to do this in detail.

Hopefully the images I have tried to attach will work and people will be able to see them.

Thanks, John

Is there a way to attach an image that is hosted in DropBox?

Maybe this file will help you out. It's not specific to your application, but it does show you the items that you are looking for.
