hey chris thanks a bunch!!! i wanted to do my own to save money, but was scared to ruin my brand new headliner. what did you guys do for the sail panels? my interior is completly out.. thanks again chris! :thumbsup:
Hey Chris, I got this link from someone over on the V8Buick board. Good to share some GM A-Body info :thumbsup: Like a lot of folks here, I was apprehensive about doing this job on my Gran Sport by myself for the first time. Someone was also mentioning shock when they were quoted an install at a shop. I'm there! A local shop quoted me $450 That's when I started thinking about doing it myself again, given the kit is barely a hundred bucks. After reading your post and the fact my glass and interior are out, I'm going to call and order a kit this weekend. Thanks again.
I did the same thing. just take the bows and go inside the car, and move them around till the "fit" you will see where they go once you try putting them in place.There are some readers that questioned the situation of what happens when you don't mark the holes that the bows came out of? I took mine out in 1999 knew I should have marked them, but have ahd the car in paint for almost a year and don't have any clue where they go. WHAT DO I DO?
What i did was take a small piece of wood ..1x2 and measured it to length and made a simple lever -one easy push and it went right in ..bubba,
if i could share one tip, instead of using your feet to push the bow into the clip take a visegrip and squeze the rod into the plastic clip. you won't push on your roof and new paint job and you won't believe how smooth it goes in. by the way your liner looks great ! i'm still fine tuning mine.
