Default Wiring Harness Above Headliner in 94SE

I will be reinstalling the headliner board in my 94SE soon. I have a question regarding the best way to reinstall the wiring harness that runs the sunroof switch, fog lights, and grab handle courtesy lights.

Is it preferable to fasten the harness to the headliner board first with like electrical tape and then when you get the baord into the car make the last connection on the driver'* side "A"pillar OR should I just tape the harness to the roof in various places and the bring the board in.

It appears that the harness was originally attached to the baord but I didn't know if that was a must.

I know Harofreak and Randman1 have done this, maybe they will have some ideas.

Any other tips will be welcome as well.

That'* a good question... I was thinking the same thing when I did mine. In the end, I ended up attaching the harness to the headliner with black duct tape but without the staples. Essentially the way it was done from the factory. I did, however, leave more slack for the rear grab handle wiring to make it a little easier to reconnect them.

I suppose it is just a preference thing.

Please post some pics when you are done so we can see.
