mazda protege fabric headliner, a-pillars, b-pillars, and c-pillars install

This is pretty hard. Wrapping the interior pieces was harder for me because of the checkerboard pattern. Using a solid color you would just have to worry about not getting any wrinkles. I also had to make sure when I laid down the fabric that the pattern was straight. It does matter what type of glue you use. It will sag if you use cheap glue. I used 3M Super Trim Adhesive. Then I made patterns for the sunvisors and sewed them together. I sewed them by hand. I painted the remaining trim black. I used Krylon Fusion Satin Black. If you're wondering, the thing in the middle is the sunglass holder. Working a few hours a day, it took about a week to wrap everything. The fabric is soft and it feels like suede.
