Finally got around to doing the back half of the installation.

It was quite awkward trying to get everything ready to install using the spray adhesive. I taped the top and dry fit the headliner several times. The headliner needed some trimming around the plastic cover for the rear defrost wiring and the foam blocks near the front of the top.

I sprayed the roof first and fit it before moving to the vertical section near the back window and C pillar. Ran into an alignment issue when I realized the rubber bumpers were off by about 1/2 an inch. Pulled it up and repositioned and it fit almost perfectly. The vertical portions went on pretty well but two sets of hands definitely helped.

I had to re-spray some of the edges to ensure a firm fit. I will definitely need to shave some of the extra material around the edges. I also need to put the edge trim banding on.

I meant to take more pictures of the process but was running short on time for other family obligations. Here’s a few.

Since this upgrade is on my list, and I have read through most of this post. I'm not sure if I am spraying or double sided tape. I also found this video which at least suggest I am not using 3M, but most likely LLPT tape. I am sure there are other, just sharing as it was helpful.

Finally finished my install yesterday (I did the freedom panels last fall) Questions answered.

1) anyone know the part number for the rubber bumpers? Busted one trying to reinstall - looks like this is part no. 68005011AB

2) I still have a vibration coming from the back window area, is this that plastic panel rattling? Or is this just the window insert rattling - this is resolved, the sliding window was the cause
