Those that have had a tough time getting the rubber bumpers back into the rear roof panel, here is the method I used. I used a "T" handle allen wrench that was a 6mm I believe. You want one that will fit into the hole in the bumper loosely, but fill the majority of the hole. The put some silicon or soap on the nipple and then push it into place. It will take some effort, but the hole is for pushing the center of the bumper and stretching it so it will pop into the hole. It was way easier to install than the edge molding!!

For the life of me I can’t get the brown paper off of the adhesive panels supplied. Plastic comes off no problem. Glue wants to come up with the paper and makes a complete mess of things. Already ruined two of the “glue” panels. Any advice before I go any further?

Instead of peeling the brown paper at the edge, take a sharp knife (new utility blade) and cut the brown strip a few inches in from the end avoiding cutting through the tape itself as much as possible, then peel up from there. I've found this to work well since the tape has a harder time peeling up away from the edge. You can use the blade tip to help start the peel up process.

Thanks. That worked great. Much appreciated.

Don't do it with the hardtop on. Otherwise, I've loved everything about mine since install with the sound deadener.

Awesome, yea was planning to pull it off.

Good point, I was going to order off Amazon. Any recs for what you used and how much? Planned on doing the recesses/voids and not like every square inch.

Adding my install. Front was easy and took no time. Yes the tape isn’t labeled well. You get the idea and I added just a little 3M VHB in a few places.

Rear just awkward due to size. Minor trimming and one spot hidden in the back I was probably off a bit but 95% perfect. Did 80mil under it and the sound difference is noticeable. Will test on highway tomorrow.

Installed this weekend. Used many of the tips in this thread to include using extra 3M double sided tape and 80mil sound mat. Had to do some trimming here and there but it was a pretty straight forward install.

Very happy with the results, wife drove it in today, temps in the negatives all day. Said it was a noticeable improvement. If she ever lets me drive it I'll find out for myself :like:

Thanks to everyone for the tips and photos!
