Lol, not much progress at all I'm afraid. The car kind of got pushed to the back burner. Hoping to get at it this weekend.

Well, its been almost a year so I thought I'd start on it. Don't want to rush into these things. Started the back window today. Have the top glued in..

Did a little more today. First time I did the headliner, I didn't do the rear window. I thought it was because the split was out of my comfort zone. Turns out the stock window isn't much easier for me. I have the top and both sides glued in. It's turning into damage control for the rest. It's going to have wrinkles, just trying to keep them to a minimum. Done for today, my back can't take it anymore.

Well, I guess I can cross off upholstery shop worker as a job after I retire. This is the end result of much cursing and yelling. I obviously did not do it correctly, had to fold over that corner. I've got a parcel tray so I'll just throw a hat or a box of tissues in front of it. Badda bing, no more wrinkles.

Got one more piece in. This one came out a bit better, just have to trim it out.

Looks good! They make it look so easy in videos. I've tried 3 times now and seemed I got worse at it. It's gotta help that your doing this during warm weather.

Thanks Brent, but the back window looks like crap. I just don't have it in me to do it over. The rest shouldn't be too bad. I'll tinker some more tomorrow. Hope we can hook up at show this summer.
