Alcantara, Psuedo-Suede, any textile of your choice.
Same color.
The adhesive is key.
Otherwise in a few hot humid months youll be wearing it on your head.


If you already have the headliner out.. the sunroof should be a cinch.
Also.. If you're already there..
double check your lifting blocks on the sunroof cassette and make sure it functions like new.
