      Finally got around to doing some work. Sunvisor cleaned and ready for material.



      Any ideas to completely remove the goop from the headliner? I want it as smooth as can be.

      My son went to bed early last night, so I decided to clean up the headliner and get final prep done. Fabric is coming in for the ABC pillars, sunshade, and rear deck. I ordered Material from The Miami Corp. after seeing Einkaufswagen's rear deck lid and talking to him about it a little bit. Waiting is hard and reading his thread here was really helpful and I recommend reading even if you have done a headliner before like I have. Sorry for the IG pics, filter is on there just to try and show some contrast.

      Anyways here are photos of the progress of the headliner foam removal, best advise on this is use a wire brush generously but not liberally.

      I used something like this



      Start


      10 minutes in


      finished. ~ 30 minutes if that.


      a side note, the foam sticky material is literally all gone and its only stick if you press and hold your hand on it firmly (for those worried that they aren't getting everything off.)

      Back side that had a ton of tree debris on it was cleaned as well. I'm thinking of using resin on this backside to harden the headliner a little to make sure it lasts.



      Sorry for all the junk on the porch... its my working location.

      Get to it, there are plenty of DIY's and it really isn't that hard.

      Just a quick update for my records really, all the components that could be sprayed black where, aside from the mini sun visor. When I get home from work, I'll get better pictures of the components after paint.

      Start


      First coat


      Second coat from the back to miss what was not coated the first time (the key is not to over spray it.) nice easy coats


      Flipped parts over that still had visible spots from the cabin


      3rd coat finished on the back side.


      Finished product to show you what proper prep can do with spray paint. (horrible lighting)


      Another with the paint I'm using.



      Now with the flash on


      ABC pillar, rear deck, and sunroof panel material should be in this coming Tuesday according to UPS.

      Thank you!

      To swap clusters, you will need Vag-tacho to find the SKU key of your current cluster and to zero out a new cluster going in the vehicle. Its expensive, I have a friend who has it and I will be borrowing it when it comes time.

      for the sunroof follow this guide, there is supposedly another method but it didn't work for me.

      Ok so update tonight, I only had about an hour to do all the work including prep and clean up so I only got the A pillars completed.

      Anyways I'm happy with the result, DAP contact cement dries really fast though for those wondering, however the hold is like you would not believe! Anyways on to the photos.


      Prep work (sorry for the dark photo)






      Sticking the cement on the first pillar and letting it tack up, word of advise, don't do the vertical strip of adhesive, do the hard area first. This allowed me to get the second pillar done in about 5 minutes.



      Becuase the cement dried so fast we are left with the end result. it takes 6 hours to fully set supposedly but I cannot pull the fabric from the pillar at all.







      So stoked these don't have any wrinkles. Maybe tomorrow night I'll attempt the B pillars again the first time I really ****ed it all up.

      I'm assuming you meant B pillars haha, and they turned out well what area did you start with first? the bottom in the picture?

      Also thank you for the compliment. Material is a micro suede from "The Miami Corp" their website is posted earlier if you should need material.

      I started from the other end ad made everything look nice then dealt with the corners. How is that glue you are using? I bought some 3m super 90 and it's great. Although you have to let is set up first or you can see sploches of glue through the material.

      Also, did you remove the old materials before wrapping?

      Its great! A pain to work with, you have to let it tack up also but you apply it like fiberglass resin. Super 90 is good but it has never stood the test of time for me.

      Also because its like a resin I left the pillar material on as it seeps through to the plastic.

      I'm going to do it myself, it will be a pain but in the end I won't say its done until there isn't a wrinkle. I have to buy the foam backed suede still though.

      From a friend that has done tons of them.

      Get the easy part done and then put sand in a grocery bag, get it where you want it and set the bag on it. it will hold the material down.
      I'm going to try and do this first and if not my neighbor has done carpet, vynal, and tile for 15 years so I'll have him show me his ways.

      Just remember, if you **** up, it only cost a little bit more material and patience. That's why I bought so much.

      Very nice, I like where this is going.

      Is anything needed other than the 04+ console to make it work ? I got one at the yard the other day and I didn't try to install it yet because I figured I may need something else. I also already have a armrest, does it fit with the 04+ style console or not ?

      Thank you
