I did this not too long ago.It's straight forward but time consuming.I pulled up the rubber strip from the back only up to the top of the windscreen,then leave flat on the roof.You will see now where the 3 blanking plugs are, held in with white sealer and a nut (removed from beneath headliner) I used a soft pencil to mark the centre of each plug on the roof panel itself just adjacent to the channel.Place rubber strip back and transfer markings to it .Then mark on dimensions of rail "foot" and cut out using hacksaw(across) and stanley knife(along) and for trimming.You don't cut right across, but end up with a neat rectangular hole in the rubber more offset to the car's centre.The flat rubber spacers on the 6 feet allow you a small amount of cock-up but not much!
I tried to locate a set of cut out stencils but nobody had any.
I used some silicone sealer on the feet to make sure but there should be rubber washers with it that seem adequate.
Also remove the headliner one side at a time, there is a post on this somewhere!
Hope this helps,

I wanted to put some badges on my car but they were the dill hole type and not self adhisive so I brought a cheap plasic folder with the see through covers, I put the badges on that and marked the holes and drilled them in the folder the badges fitted perfectly so I used that as the template.Maybe you could adopt the same idea.
This just my opinion.
