Default before and after interior

before



in between


after








Driver side has same neon as these, but I didnt feel the need to take a picture.




All thats left is black carpet and paint my vents and a few other pieces when I have money to paint the truck.

I love the seats most man...they are so comfy...Those were the original 60/40 bench too...It would be damn near impossible to find lowback buckets....glad they turned out nice...I was getting sketched out after I cut them up...but my buddy worked his magic and made them nicer than I thought they could be.

Tweed on the dash, most of the door panel and outsides of the seats.

Suede on the steeringwheel, headliner, visors, middle of the seats, and part of the doorpanels.

Painted a few of the plastic pieces (I just sanded, buddy primed, then I sanded again then he painted)...as you can see by the floorboard, my radio bezel is next. I call the color rootbeer, my buddy mixxed it himself to paint his rims and I liked it so much I had him take my interior pieces to the paintbooth with him. It looks almost as gold as WRX wheels in direct sunlight, but black as my interior at night...This is what it looks like in the shade.

nice work on the door panels and dash. did you do them yourself, or have a shop do it? any seams in the dash or were you able to get the tweed to lay flat?

My friend and I did it...There is 1 seam on the drivers side and 2 seams on the passenger side that the doors cover up when they are shut (by the fuse panel and on the other side same spot) and one seam directly above the speedo that you cant see unless you're in my driver seat...and if thats the case, you got a lot more to worry about than seams

Can you see the seams? (left side of the pic on the side of the dash)


look just above where the speedo and tach meet.



Tweed is an ******* to work with because you cant stretch it like most fabrics...Its woven so if you stretch it, the lines get crooked and it looks like ass, totally defeating the purpose of wrapping. So you gotta pull it tight, but not too tight.

Anyone that wants to do this to their dash/doors/headliner, all you really need other than fabric is:

3m 90 spray adhesive

Hot glue for the edges

And a lot of patience.

i know all about tweed. personally can't stand it. it can be stretched, just need to know the tricks. when i wrapped my dash (vinyl), i ended up with one seam on each end.

The vinyl dash is what I thought he was going to do too...But I wasnt paying for his help and Im not the one with the sewing machine or experience...So we didnt do it with stitches. I like yours though. I dont know the tricks of tweed, I just remember him keep saying not to stretch it or it was going to look like ass and he wasnt going to fix it for me if I fucked it up lol
