Ok, I've been installing DKOV's CF headliner, and I got it in, except I can't get the d@mn A-Pilar back on! Mainly the driver side. Anyone know of any "tips" or anything for it? After I get it done, I'll post pics, along with some pics of my NEW paint .

did you get new clips? If not look up Rodney Dickman. The old clips will either brake or distort but sometimes they can be reused. That is if you are talking about the plastic trim that covers the A pillar?

Yeah, I'm talking about that plastic peice that goes over the door. The problem at the time is not the clips, but I can't get it to go forward enough (need 1/4 to 1/2 more!) and I'm afraid of breaking it! lol.

It takes a bit of fidgeting, but it *should* go back in. If you do end up breaking off the clips another option is to use heavy duty velcro. Stick the fuzzy side on the a piller and stick the hook side on the plastic piece. Good luck

Ok, cool. I'll keep that in mind. The big problem is, I can't get it forward enough, lol!
