Thank you!

Like ALL things in life, the first time is the hardest. After you know how it comes down and goes back up it really is pretty easy. The hardest part is removing the foam from the headliner shell. After that it's just time and patience gluing the fabric back on and then put everything back together. I also has a slight leak from my sunroof drain and took care of that while it was apart.

For what it is worth. Buy great glue. Over the top great glue. I ran out 2/3 of the way through my headliner and grabbed a can from NAPA. It was not the same, and harder to work with. I think the black is a great choice.

I bought the headliner package from Headliner Express, they send you enough headliner material and 2 cans of what I assume to be high quality spray glue. One point for anyone trying this is to be VERY careful when spraying the glue on the headliner or shell, it comes out in odd floating streams and if it gets on your headliner it is WHITE, so with a black headliner it shows. Trust me on this one.

I finally finished the truck, the rear bumper came in and that was the last major thing to do. Here are a few pics of the finished truck, along with my day job. I am still undecided on the black roof, I have extra vinyl wrap and will give it a few months to see if it grows on me, if not I will wrap the roof with the same Charcoal Matte and put the roof bars back on. Time will tell.

Still not bad for a 14 year old truck.

What material did you use for the black fabric? I've had my door panels off plenty of times but I've never looked closely at those fabric-covered sections. Do those sections remove easily? I might get some fabric and try pulling/gluing it on myself.

I had a local boat upholsterer guy do it as I really didn't know what to use either. He used a sort of headliner material, it is a fabric not vinyl, but has a pretty soft texture. The guy told me it is pretty easy EXCEPT for the edge where it ends, he said it is very hard to make that look right. For mine he made a small welt around the edge, it looks really good in my opinion.

Those sections don't really "remove", what you have to do it peel the suede cover off and under that is a thin layer of foam that needs to be removed, much like the headliner. In my case it was worth it as I had put so much time into the headliner and wanted it to match and look good.

You can also use fabric paint, it looks really good but when it dries is has a rough texture, it is not very soft.

You have any experience with just wrapping in clear vinyl? I'd like to protect the current pain I have from the inevitable desert pinstripes that happen here. I'd really consider doing a matte clear finish too.
