It has felt good to work on this car again. It has been a while since I could devote very much time on it at one time. This morning I decided to try and attempt to clean the sun visors and headliner. I started out with goop hand cleaner like I did on the vinyl seats and other interior parts. That did not go at all well on the sun visor so decided on Bleachwhite. That worked great! Sadly, the goop had set some of the stains into the one sun visor so it is not as clean as the other one is. I don’t think it is going to be noticeable in the car. I forgot to take a before picture of the headliner but it was almost as bad at the sun visors. It also cleaned up very well. It is not perfect but will have to do. I am not replacing it if it will survive being installed again. My interior friend said it will never make it through cleaning let alone installation and that I was wasting my time. I told him I was going to at least attempt it. I felt like it was still very strong. He had not looked at it in person and just going by what he usually sees. So far so good.
