  2. Dang that a really good explanation. Thank you for the knowledge drop
  3. Thank you guys for the help!!! I’m going to decide if I should go with the classic headliner or order the custom fit one. I already bought it but it was only 40 bucks. i really love to keep everything original. That’s my only con going that route. thank you guys :)
  4. Im in the process of installing a new headliner and have watch some fellow member on YouTube doing the same exact thing. but my questions is, how do I remove the chrome trim without bending them? Is there a good trick to doing it or do I need the proper tool for it? Thank you in advance. P.s. if y’all have any trick to doing the install feel free to share :)
  5. Dang that’s amazing. I know it takes a lot of patience and more than one person to do it. Thank you for the info! You’ve definitely sparked my interest

  16. You can pay someone to vinyl wrap them. What I did was sand the area down for prep and added a few layers of Jb Weld and then sand it until it’s smooth. Then ordered paint from cjpony that matched and painted it. Looks good as new imo.
