Thanks, was having a hard tiem finding those. I really need some lessons on using the search engine.
I did a headliner once on an Aries I owned. The adhesive fell like the same day. Luckily the material I sued was kinda like a pillow case so I was ablte to slide teh cardboard piece into it so although it sagged a bit, it was pretty snug.
Don't think I'll find any material like that that will fit this car though.

the 3M supertrim adhesive is like no other. it is not sticky to the touch. it only sticks to itself, that is why you spray both pieces, and then wait to stick them together

take the seat out.

JDB took the door off, but I didnt need to. You WILL need to bend it to get it out, just be careful while doing it.
