Ferrari Testarossa headliner

I have a small dent in the roof of my 86 Testarossa just behind the driver seat. I want to get access from the underside with a dent removal tool. Does anyone know how to drop the headliner slightly to gain access? My dent removal guy does not want to use adhesive with a tool that pulls the dent out. My car has all original paint and he wants to make sure that he does not damage the paint.
Just a small drop of the headliner and he can get a tool in to fix this small dent.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thank you

My TR got dented during shipment as it looked like the driver used the roof to try and lift himself out of the car. Let's just say he was less than svelte. Anyway, a highly recommended local PDR guy pulled my dent out. He said he would ONLY do it if the paint was original due to it having a better adhesion than a repaint. Started with the least powerful adhesive and worked up. He is an artist! He felt better doing that than getting into messing with the headliner. YMMV

Pulled dent out

I used a local guy that pulled the dent out. The paint is all original. He was a little concerned because of the age of the paint. For protection, he placed a strip of packing tape over the dent and put the adhesive on top of that. Tape stuck and did not come off until after the dent was pulled out. Tape pealed off easily when done, but stayed on when direct force was applied while working to remove dent. Worked great. Perfect job.

I wish I had taken some "before" photos but I did not. The "after" photos will only show perfect panels
