I just masked off real good and painted away. Turned out pretty good but I would like to paint the shocks struts too since that's the only thing left that isn't black.

Yeah it's the same bolts that I use to hoist the top off the back. Then I just leave it suspended in the air.

In the bottom hole there is a plastic screw and insert that needs to be removed. Then I removed the two screws holding the sunvisor and then there is only one plastic retainer holding that piece into the pillar. Just pull it out. Then I just configured the garage opener so it would allow the trim piece to lay flush and Velcroed it in there.

Yeah the stuff that they send with it is called hushmat. And I've only had it in a week so I haven't really noticed any difference in sound yet. But I mainly bought the headliner for insulation purposes because I live in Phoenix and in the summer It gets 115 degrees here.
