Begun my OHC install

Well, I began my OHC install today.
I picked it up for thirty bucks...1 of 2 that didn't have the sunroof button. It was tan so i had to sand paint it. The first can of paint i bought sucked it came out chrome so I had to sand it all off and i exchanged it for duplicolor, which came out wayyyy better. The cut in my headliner isn't the best but you won't be able to tell at all once the thing is installed...i already test fitted it before painting. Anyways, here are a few pics. No rubberized interior, sorry.

You can see the black spot at the front left of the headliner where i cut....that was from the dremel...the sparks set it on fire LOL! it was pretty funny

the flash makes it look weird but it matches interior pretty well. Jeweler, ill paint it black if i get a set of black fx4 seats with the matching console sometime this summer lol

and i tried finding a gray one but both of the ones that DIDN'T have the sunroof button were tan. i didn't want one with a useless sunroof button lol

EDIT: Ok I hate you Ben I want to paint it black LOL. Ill be going to home depot bright and early tomorrow morning to pick up some of the krylon!
