Would you just cut it to the headliner and glue it on the upside?

Just cut to fit the inside of the roof, push it in where you can on any edges, and use some clear silicone in a few spots. It just needs to stay up long enough to put the headliner back up.
But, you can glue it to the back side of the headliner if you want to.
A 4'x10' roll of Reflectix is $25 on ebay.

I don't have any pics of Disco specific headers, but they look like most any other headers, tubing.
Stock exhaust manifolds are cast iron.

Hey Dave,

Do you have a photo of where you added the silicone?

I probably should have washed all the pollen off first... Lol, but you can see where the rubber seal is in a different spot than it was before the new windshield went in. There was a small gap there which the silicon fills. I also pried that corner piece up as it wasn't glued down firmly and applied silicone under that too.

Dave, THANK YOU! I've been trouble shooting this for a year. I peeled back the corner piece, and the longer plastic cover across the top of the windshield and of course, there was a very thin bead of silicone. I've been slowly adding more and more this week since we've been having a ton of rain, and the leak gets smaller and smaller everytime. I'm probably going to re-silicone the entire top part of the windshield, but it seems to have fixed it.
