I'm thinking of recovering my headliner, and parts of my door panels in something different, then doin somethin with my sub box to tie it all together... heres my question tho, i've read in some interior forms on here about the headliner, and it got me confused.. can it come out??? i have a supercab.. or extended cab.. or whater, i dont know the difference..

also, someone mentioned you'd have to drill out the little plastic melted rivets in the door panel to remove parts of it.. once i do that, how do i reattach the panel to the door panel??? anyone with any info, thanks!!!

The headliner is semi-rigid and easy to remove. Easy to remove AFTER you've removed the visors, coat hook and just about all the upper interior plastic trim which was designed to go on once and stay there.

first off, the headliner can come out and is a lot easier to take it out if you are gonna cover it, Look at the interior forums on RPS and they have answers to all your questions..... as far as the plastic rivets are concerned you would have to melt them down and use some adhesive such as liquidnails to put it back together, I personally wouldn't bother with that if you are able to jsut stuff and cover the foam padding with the material you are using.

Good luck with everything man, I'd go with some black tweed on that black truck, make it look really nice man.

I removed my headliner completely and reinstalled it successfully without too much trouble. Some of the push pins on the plastic parts were a pain and you might need to replace one or two if things don't go your way. Just time consuming more than anything else.
