Aren't you supposed to pull the door pannel and remove the trim card from the backside of the pannel?

Door panel was pulled because I thought this same thing. Turns out its hot glued in with the existing material stapled to the mdf. I should also be more specific..on the center console lid I removed the 6 screws and wrapped the material tight around it, holding it in place with hot glue, then put the panel back on to secure it in place. I did this in case I want to remove it at some point. I did this same thing with the other little piece on the door. For the actual door cards and headliner I'll be using the spray adhesive so the material actually contours to the shapes and doesn't sag. If anyone has any tips or tricks please feel free to throw them out. This is only like the 2nd or 3rd time trying this, first time on my own

Would love to get some bride front seats and upholster the rear seats, console, door cards and headliner in matching bride material.

Edit: but that's a friggin' pipe dream. Too much monies...

Pretty wild.
That's not even out yet and supposedly won't be until next year. Also not "confirmed" with those specs. It's not going to be anywhere near the $499 they're charging for the Surface RT. The one they just released is an ARM processor, usb 2.0, and like 16GB/32GB. Also it's $499 for the tablet and an extra $99 for the black keyboard and $120 for colors. You can expect to pay close to, if not double for the Surface Pro that you're talking about. At that point you buy a laptop or ultra book.

Gonna do a door a day and then the headliner this weekend. Headliner will be different than doors
There are little metal rivet clips on the back side of the door panel that hold the MDF into the rest of the door panel, you have to remove the door panel to remove that trim piece.

Shocking, never would've guessed that tires for 15x6 wheels would've been cheaper than 18x8 lol! of course they are more expensive they are a huge low profile performance tire vs a tiny econobox tire.
