Tried to redo my headliner this weekend. It didn't go as smoothly as planned. About 1/2 of the way done I wasn't happy with how it was going, so I ripped everything off of it again.

Gonna drop it off at a shop tomorrow and have them do it. I won't be happy with it otherwise.

Are you upholstering it in anything special or just black again?

Things like glue leaking through the cloth material, folds in certain spots, and I couldn't work it into the grab handle areas. Things went down hill pretty quickly, and it's not worth the headache lol

Really like the intake, noticeable throttle response increase, not really any increased noise, although I would have preferred a bit more intake noise and it seems to have quieted down whatever ticking is going on in the engine - which is super odd. My stock intake filter was quite old so it's definitely running smoother now.
if you do the soundaktor delete you can hear a bit of "whoosh" on the intake

Found the source of a rattle that has been driving me crazy for months!

The resistors for the LED tails get warm and the adhesive backing tape gets soft and fall off and rattle around. Yes I am so happy right now! OCD...

lol, I had something similar and it just made me wonder if all the rattles that people complain about in these car are because of something we do. Wasn't too long ago I realized the rattle I've had since I installed my coilovers was from my radar detector.

Didn't do it yet, but planning to install the sub-frame alignment kit this saturday. Also going to do the dogbone billet insert while I'm there.

I have a few different instructions and videos on youtube I've studied. Any extra advice or words of wisdom before tackling this one?

Good floor clearance and take your time threading the bolts. I paid for the front to be done, but I did the rear and was a small PIA.
