you have to take the seat belts out, there is a little round clip by the door you will see it, its on the outside, and besides that it just pops off... really no trick to it, its tricky getting it back ON lining everything up so it all adjusts like stock... that was the fun part... good luck

for just the headliner i spent less then 150$ total, all paint, glue and material... and another 80 something on sound deadening, but that did the whole car not just the roof lol... its not TO bad

i got visors for cheap from a salvage yard and used duplicolor fabric paint on them, they turned out great, not sure how much the 08 visors cost but that was my cheap solution

Does anyone have a pic of the headliner just painted black with fabric paint? Not covered. I dont like that look personally, but would rather have it the stock fabric just painted black. Not to rag on those of you with the suede look.

drunkinmonkey - What kind of paint did you use on the pillars? I plan on doing it all this summer :)

Did you sand any of the parts before you painted? Or just shot them as-is. Im trying to get them to look flat, dont want much shine to them. How are yours? This one looks EXACTLY how I want them all to look, lol.



How do the parts that adjust the belt hold up? Does the paint chip off it they get adjusted?

Sorry for the thread jack, lol im done now :p

haha no worries...well for seatbelt i used more the normal clearcoat just to prevent the chipping and what not from occuring and it seems to me holding up rather well in my opinion everything painted was done clear coat dependinghow many layers youuse i think on my a pillars theres only a few coats just to kinda protect it....might also be the light from the camera haha

im pretty sure you can get flat black paint for plastic


as for sanding i did known i just cleaned them really well to get grease and oils and what not off them

GOODLUCK!!

i didnt sand mine either, just cleaned them off really really well, my seat belt adjusters are holding up great... then again, i dont adjust mine, and the other side is adjusted for my GF and shes the only other person who rides in my car so they dont move much
