I just pulled my fabric off, soaked the glue and used a wire brush to remove the glue that was left, in the link i put at the bottom, you can somewhat see its a white thin plastic, its on top of the black celica

sure did, was pretty easy, but it was like 8,9 months ago now lol...

^This, I repainted all the pillars black w/ trim spray paint

Also if the material on your headliner isn't falling off or anything, I recommend giving the headliner a good cleaning and just putting the new fabric over the existing stuff. I used 3M Super Trim Adhesive and found it to be great, the Part number is 08090.

I used an adhesive that said 300 strength or something like that and its still holding up strong, I tried to find it on the Jo-ann's website but i couldnt find it, I did find this though, not sure how long it would last .
Headliner Spray Glue*: home decor notions *: sewing*: *Shop | Joann.com


Also I would ask Chris (Armyguy) about the sunroof cover, I couldn't find a DIY when I did mine and ended up doing it in the car with the sunroof cover still attached...big pain in the ass. LoL.

and here is the DIY I did for those coupes that have a sunroof... not sure if its the same for a sedan, if it is let me know.
