As you start doing it, it becomes pretty much self explanatory as you go along.
Now the sunroof shade was a whole different monster. I need to find a write up on how to remove and re-install that. I dropped the whole sunroof frame and glass trying to get that out. I finally got it out using brute force, but it cant go back in that way without damaging the suede. Going to try and open roof all the way and go in from the top when I re-install if I cant find any directions on it.
I had a horrible sunroof leak that took forever to fix.. I ended up removing the headliner to get better access to the sunroof.

It wasn't so bad to take out, but what a ***** to go back in. The rear hatch opening doesn't seem big enough. I tried all kinds of angles and eventually just had to gently force it in. Sure was a PITA.

Little update, not sure if it will be done by Sat. As I said in previous post our upholstery shop got pretty busy, and now they are insanely busy. Headliner is done and trimmed out. He is trying to finish up pillars by Sat. I know visors will not be ready, those require sewing. So will keep my fingers crossed that he finishes by end of day tomorrow.

Curious to see how the pillars turn out too. This is definitely motivating me to get back to work when I get my truck back.

Alright so going to re-install today, minus front pillars, sun visors,home link control, and rear hatch. Those are the pieces he didnt get done. I figure in the front with the 2 sun visor clips that screw back in, and how the sides tuck in between the rubber weather proof strip, it should be okay up front. If I have to make something to screw in where actual visor goes in I will. Really thats the only thing that holds the front in. I have some small metal flat plates that will work if needed. Pics in a few hrs

Alright got as far as I could, and for the most part I'm happy. The only part I'm not happy with is the patch we made for where the tv was didnt hold up as well as I hoped. But I'm contemplating installing an Alpine amp up there. Would fit perfect and I never seen that done. Like I said earlier still missing a few pieces, but should be complete by next week.
