    Window guides

    So I am replacing the plastic pin guide on the drivers side window and to do so I took out the two pieces of metal with the soft felt that the glass rides on. Now I'm wondering if they are supposed to go back on a specific way. Are the two pieces interchangeable? Or are there differences...

    Does the listing for the hard top headliner NEED the extra parts for the dome light, or can I re-use the ones currently in my car? Also, the listing says that you only need new REAR headliner clips to re-install. Do you sell those individually or only as the group of front and rear? Thanks
