    I thought of my beloved tacoma world forum this morning and having exchanged a few PMs with fellow members recently about the Headliner Removal. Had to share this picture with you all. A little tongue in cheek but, remember watch the clips. :D

    OH yeah....I keep a box of those smaller snack zip lock bags in the garage for that purpose. I put everything in bags so I can keep track of it.

    Regarding the headliner though, that one plastic pop rivet at the top of the B-pillar panel (I think it's red) was fucking impossible to get off. I finally got the cover off but the rivet was still stuck in it's hole. Took me 30 minutes and a set of pliers to get it out.

    Joke's on that red bastard though...I had to destroy it to get it out.

    Moral of the story, buy a set of extras from the dealer. I had them left over from my Lexus IS300 which used the same kind.

    so funny.. I feel the exact same.
    You want to screw me plastic thingy..? SNIPS, PLIARS.. duct tape, velcro..

    I can't think of what the piece is that you're referring to though. I had few issues.
    The 90 CClockwise turn knobs were the only thing I got shaky on. I think I busted 1 little piece off, but things are still fine.

    I broke the push clip on my drivers door yesterday, putting my speakers in. No idea how it happened. The little one up by the sail panel, that you push the center of then pull out. Stupid....

    I lost a lot when I was doing my Pathfinder..... a lot...

    The real pisser is when you lose the ziplock baggie, cause it fell out of the box of other labeled ziplock baggies...

    LOL, that's perfect! I'm gonna post that cartoon at work. Our work benches sit on a white, grey & black comercial tile floor and everytime a bolt, washer or nut falls onto the floor it's gone. We call it the bermuda triangle.
