Some jobs are better left to professionals,  :alan2cents:  but here's a tip:

Once you remove your rear view mirror, sunvisors, shoulder belt clips, shoulder belts, coat hooks, etc.....replace all the screws/bolts into their holes but don't tighten. After the headline is all nice and tight and glued in place, you can feel around for the screws, poke the screwdriver through and remove the screws.....now you know where the parts go  :alan2cents:
I've taught you everything you know....but I haven't taught you everything I know....

The way you have it bunched up across the car is the way it will be before you cut the 'loops' where the listing wire goes. You will need to cut them back to allow for a wrinkle free installation. Once cut back, you will be able to stretch the fabric across the car. The clips you posted a pic of (two per side)will hold the fabric side to side, while you then stretch it front to back. Once you work it a wrinkle free as possible a hair dryer will remove the remaining wrinkles.
