          That was some severe roof acne.
          Looks nice now.

                      I just got the same headliner from Legendary. The shop that put in did a nice job, but then the dome light started grounding out my fuse. The stoplamp, open-door switches, & maplight are all on the same circuit. I believe the problem is in the flimsy dome light socket.

                      Got pics ? As long as you get all the rust out, maybe patch an area if needed, and the roof is solid, preferable than a complete skin.

                        They used a little bondo but mostly they were able to just sand down and use and epoxy and was good to go.I went with the option offered by Dodge for the snake skin vinyl and the perforated head liner.Mine had the stock material.
