makin’ a custom headliner
Of all the interior things to tackle in my car, the headliner seemed the most daunting…which is why I saved it for last!!

Thank goodness Matt at Department of Customs pointed out to me that a couple of my distributor wires had been damaged by the heat of my headers! Now that they’re switched out, my engine’s sounding much better as its now fully firing on 8 cyclinders!
