I hope the pillars changed in 92, because mine are super easy. A little more difficult to install back in.. but that'* just because i'm retarded and don't know the install order all that well [or at least when I pulled mine I didn't].

the wrong install order? You'll find out when the last piece doesn't fit right.

Mine:

Haro'*:

Is it simple? In a word, No. The pillars are nothing. The hard part is getting the board safely out of and back in to the car.

I removed the headliner in my 95 ssei, what a pain in the ***, the biggest problem in the removal is taking out those clips for the visors, your gonna break em unless you take it real easy, i was lucky and found the exact colour at a junk yard, if you havent pulled the headliner before maybe head out to a junk yard and pull out the headliner on a wrecker jsut to see how things work, i have done that for a few other projects its easier to learn with. Just watch the clips and youll be alright.
