ohhhh...grasshoppah. you have lot to do.

i did it to mine...and it is beautiful!

PITA to remove the rails...if you dont know how. pull the headliner out, lots of various clips and such. then, there are four nuts that hold the racks to the roof. remove the rails, fill the holes, i used body sealant from a body shop.

now, the expensive part. go to your dealer, and order these trim pieces:
91046FE010 for the left side, and 91046FE000 for the right side

or, click here for the long version...http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/show...l&pagenumber=1

Oh yeah I totally agree, your rides lookin perty sharp no doubt. Its just I wouldnt want to end up with a bubbled ceiling or anything like that. Ive never been to good with the interior type stuff. Plus Its 110 bucks for the trim pieces. Albeit not to expensive but you also need all the right tools, like that page says you need some sort of door panel wrench?????Strange stuff yup.
