Default Hothead headliner

Just got my Hothead headliner kit today and installed it tonight in about 25 minutes. I am very happy with it. Looks factory-perfect fit. Completely different interior sound-much quieter, stereo sounds 100% better. A must buy for the daily driver. Thanks to mark at Hothead.

I hate the white interior of the hard top, so I ordered a Hothead headliner kit last week........it should be shipping shortly

Mark was great to talk to as well

Can we get pics? Does the headliner cover the sides of the windows as well?

Jeep has announced a headliner kit for the interior of the hard top JK's.... Im waiting out for it, Im assuming (might be wrong) that it will be a good kit.

I have seen one installed and it looks llke it came from the factory, the only *aesthetic* improvement might be to paint the inside of the top to match the headliner, if you really care that much, and I have to agree with everything particularly if it is a dd, but I am concerned about two things:

1. How long the adhesive on the velcro strips will hold?
2. How it will hold up to handling when removing or installing the top without a lift?

That's my primary concern also...as the AZ guys might agree, the insided of the top in mid-summer is so hot, you can't even touch it. That heat will do a number on most adhesives.
