At the moment I'm thinking of only redoing the A/B/C pillars and leaving the headliner stock since it still looks new... and because it looks like a lot more that I could screw up

Funny, I want to do the exact opposite. I put too much effort into wiring the trunk lights with the brake lights though, lol.


Also, what do you think of these wide angle mirrors?

Finished the B and C pillars... and now I realize how dingy the headliner looks

Going to try cleaning it, but I think it would look better if I reupholstered it black

Yea, something like that. The ones I bought aren't heated so hopefully there won't be a problem in the winter (at least the glass won't rust up)

Keep the RCRs. They look so much better on sedans, especially TiAgs.

All RCRs are not created equal. Which RCRs do you speak of??

I'm referring to the look of RCRs in general, not any specific brands.
