So the one thing that really bothered me about my Jeep is the whole interior is black except the damn pillars and headliner. So I pulled the headliner today and pillars, going to have the guys at work who do the re upholstery do it in black suede. All the plastic pieces, where the seat belts go, and the home link I will paint with plasti dip. Headliner was easy to get out, the f'ing sunroof shade was a major pita. Dont know how to get that back in without damaging the suede. Also doing the tailgate piece
They tend to do the headliners in a light colour so the car doesn't feel like you're sitting in a cave, easier to sell them
Billet catch can, AFE intake, HID high and low, wavetrac, black gloss US staggered, vredesteins, trinity and Tooner tune, EBC slotted/drilled rotors, yellow stuff pads.
Interior led's, 5" tips, straight through resonators, mopar tcm, SRT lower grille emblem, front side 35% tints, blue under hood kit from BT, BC coil overs.
The headliner was pretty simple, basically pull off all pillars, sun visors, home link, rear handles with the map lights, Tv, and rear trim is just clipped in. After removing all that your headliner should start to fall, you just have to get your hand up in there to unplug anything that is holding it back. 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.
One of the items high up on my to do list. Already have the suede.
Was hesitant due to working with that sunroof shade.
Definitely watching this one.
I think I may have figured the sunroof shade out. The bracket that actually holds the shade in has a rivet on each side of it in the back. My thought is if I drill those rivets out that bracket will open up and let me slide the shade in from the rear. Then I will either re-rivet or use some 1/2" self tappers to close it back up. Probably wont be done till next weekend, just my luck our upholstery shop got slammed with work this week. I am going to ask my guy to get that shade done first so I can figure it out before I put headliner back in, dont want to be stuck on stupid for 4-5hrs when headliner is finished. Will take pics if my idea for the shade actually works.
