Hello there! Kinda new to this but I was just curious to know if i could install a passenger side grab handle on the headliner.. Im rocking a 97 escort lx/sport and im not sure if i would just mount it to the headliner or have to drill a hole on the metal part of the roof.

While I haven't had the escort headliner out yet, I do know that factory grab handles mount through the headliner into reenforced mounts on the inner roof skin. To mount a grab handle properly, you would have to reenforce the inner roof sheet metal with a thicker piece and possibly a cross member or two. Not as simple as drilling a couple holes and bolting it in. I suggest going to the wrecking yard and examining a few cars with grab handles to see the different ways factories did them.
