Decided I was tired of looking at how mistreated the previous owner left the interior in my 04 Xlt truck so I wanted to start from the ground up and do a sort of overhaul. Was my first time doing anything interior related but I took a bunch of pics along the way and ended up making a cheesy youtube video with them.

Check it out if you have a minute!
and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

My truck is jealous of your new headliner and those seat covers rock. Very nice, keep up the great work and more pictures and videos.

Hey Busy, a big SALUTE for your overhaul. Have a few Q's about the headliner: 1) how does it come out/fasten back in? 2) Did you peel off the original "fuzzy" material, or just cover over it? 3) What kind of adhesive did you use to attach the faux leather?

Thanks in advance, and HATS OFF to a great job!

Thanks man!

The headliner is held in by a number of different things, the visors, the hand grips on your pillars, your dome light and some interior trim on your back cab wall. I just covered my existing material as I felt that would be the easiest. I read mixed reviews on the internet about the super 77 3m adhesive but it worked well for me.

Hope this helps

That is an interior to be proud of. Good job! Where did you buy the door panels?
