Full interior swap

Ok, So I am considering swapping the complete interior from my parts car into my driver...

The reason... It's black, I don't like the blue interior


So the only think I really need to buy is new carpet (my parts car has a couple holes), and The back seats that I sold to G Force and thats it, the rest of the interior is pretty much perfect

So here is my question... I've never done much serious interior work So I was wondering from people who have completly stripped their interior, How long does it take to pull everything out, and put everything back in?



Thanks,
Marshall

Re: Full interior swap

shouldn't take too long, you could prolly have the whole carpet out in like 2 hours.
-the front seats, 4 bolts each.
-rear lower seats, clips.
-door sills, pull right up.
-center console, a buncha phillips screws.
-dead pedal, 3 nuts.
-rear interior panel, some screws.
-front lower interior panels, pull right out.


but you are gonna hafta cut the carpet in like 2 places if you don't wanna take out the entire radio console, and shifter assembly. cut it behind the radio, and under the shifter cables IIRC.

Re: Full interior swap

hey PreludeS, i'm looking into doing an interior swap myself. i just bought my 98 SH on saturday and the carpet is just plain nasty. if it's not too much trouble, do you mind putting up a how to or maybe some pictures once you're done? it would help out a lot.

Re: Full interior swap

Dying your carpet makes it "crispy"

You can buy a whole new molded carpet from autointeriors.com for about $140. I will warn you though, installing it is a pain. You have to cut all the holes yourself. As long as you dont mind doing that its pretty simple. I took me about 3 hours to gut my car, cut new carpet, lay it in and put everything back. But I know my prelude interior really well.

Re: Full interior swap

lamo this is the perfect thread for me. I was just ripping out my interior today and i do that all the time at work(autobody shop) It took me about and hour. Just make sure you keep track of the bolts or screw them right back into where you got them out form. STAY ORGANIZED!!!

Re: Full interior swap

dont dye it, its not worth it, just buy some new or get some used but i recommend blue coral carpet cleaner for getting out spots. if you buy some used carpet just spray and scrub then rub it down real good with an old towel. it gets out so much crap. and you can use laquer thinner to remove the real bad stains and gunk. just dont get it on plastic because it melts.

removing the interior is sooo easy and quick i do it every time i clean my car (I KNOW, ocd)

that was just yesterday, its all back in now. took like 1.5 hours to get it all back in going at a careful pace. i usually put all my screws in a tupperware.

yeah as for the dash itself, its not too hard. you have to take out all the gauges and the climate control first then theres some bolts on either side where the door vents are. search the forum im sure theres a detailed tut. and i know lilmisslude knows all the bolt locations. she mentions it somewhere in her member's rides page
