Yes, there are shadows messing with the after pic, it wasn't painting errors BTW

It was either bedline my current headliner or fork out $350 for a poly injection molded black shell to get what I like
Does blacking out the headliner do anything besides looks? Like help keep heat from penetrating roof?

I'm not a fan of the unfinished fiberglass textured look. To each their own..
I see rough spots so I'll be sanding it down, probably pick up another can for a final top cost but I'm not sure..
The odd can for the top coat left lines of a slight semi gloss black among the flat black. If I were a little more steady, it would look intentional, I kinda like how it looks. I might trial fit it after it dries and just see how it looks before adding another layer of paint. It's a unique twist I kinda like. It's the imperfections I find the best parts of hobby work.

Probably not. The headliner its self is three layers thick and is the thermal and sound insulation. The black is mainly just aesthetic.

Jut got back from a 700 mile round trip in the 5.9 since I installed the rear Addco sway bar. I already had the front but had never gotten to take a trip since the rear was installed. It made a huge difference on the highway. Definitely worth the cash for both bars.

Unless the alignment shop can magically lengthen your stock track bars to the right length, you will need adjustable track bars to center the axles.

I've decided that my nifty hot air cleaner intake and air conditioning are mutually exclusive. You can't have both of them. So, for now, AC wins. Instead... Dual 4" tubes, battery in the trunk, and two fully enclosed heat shields? Something to keep me busy until I have cash money for giggle gas and other stuff.

That looks like it will be a fun project. What are your plans for filters?
