sounds risky... are you sure you won't pass out from the fumes? Looks good though! I might try the coffee stained carpet.

I did my headliner in black as well, the manly way by taking it out, spraying it and chucking it back in. I started at 4pm on a sunday and finished up by 9pm that night. Only thing is while fitting it some of it ripped about a 1/2" around where the sunroof is so I just sewed it up...I don't look there that much anyways..

That vinyl spray is good ish.

Removed over head panel, Front glass, side rear windows and rear window. you Also have to remove 90% of the sunroof assembly. Sorta confusing @ first but its a piece of cake to take apart. Its holding up well except for the spots i forgot to spray...I'll touch them up when i feel like it...

don't take the rubber out that hold the windsheild in, they never seem to fit right after they are removed.

I have heard horor stories about getting in to fit right on other sites, but then again they may not know what they are doing

you just take out the preasure ring, the rubber does not have to be removed to take the winsheild out.
