Just completed removal - directions and advice spot on. Thanks - this will save me a tin of money.
There may not be any sound deadening material above your headliner. You can glue some foam, or other sound deadening material directly to the metal roof and this should work for you.
Is there anything that goes between the headliner board and truck metal roof (insulation/foam). My truck has hollow, echo-like sound that is annoying. thanks
Thanks this was great help. I just ordered the repair kit.
easy and excellent directions to follow to get the job done
