    Worst case scenario, you drill all the way through and glue a fake dome light over the wound on the headliner. :) Good luck not tearing the headliner to pieces in the process.

    Holy cow, I'd never seen that and sure wouldn't want to deal with it.

    My headliners are all separate and easy to remove in just a few minutes using simple hand tools. Not nearly as easy to put back in place, all stretched and perfect like from the factory; so for me, Chatsworth Auto Upholstery to the rescue. They have the tools and expertise to get it perfect, and they don't charge me anything if I bring them a dozen donuts or a pizza or something. Nice guys. And it's five minutes away, so not exactly a big trip.

    +1 on using the dome light for access, then drill from inside the car to the outside. Makes it a lot easier.
    Have several vehicles with the NMO mounts in the center of the roof. Never any leaks.
    And even my almost 30 year old Suburban, that new headliner is $350-400. I ended up making my own with metal sheet, insulation and carpet.
