That's pretty slick. More info?

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.

Bruhee Krylon flat black. I read where a lot of people use bedliner but I'm pretty happy with the way this turned out.

Bruhee Bump stops
Yesterday 06:32 PM
Bruhee Couple other ones I just finished today are the garage door opener in the windshield pillar and bump stop extensions made from three-quarter inch PVC and chair leg bottom covers. After I put the bump stop extensions on I had a hard time lifting the spare tire up so I rigged a strap to an I-bolt in the ceiling and Cinched it right up.

They are actually better than the stock headlights. They require no adaptation to fit them into the stock fog light housing. My build thread shows the difference in stock vs led.

I also ordered what I thought was pair of Germany Philips 9003 H4 X-treme Power Headlight Bulb 9003XPS2 from ebay for ~$30 shipped. But I got 2 pairs for that price! These aren't LED, but when I get them installed I'll be able to show the difference between my LED fogs, stock headlight and these Philips halogens. I'm expecting a fairly decent light color match, and for ~$55 for both fogs & headlamps I don't have much to lose.
Thanks for the info!

Here's a link to the best youtube video I could find. I just used krylon spray paint, a lot of people like to use plastidip.
