may i suggest something? i re-did my interiors completely. getting a new dash and pretty much all of the panels is very damn expensive. sometimes even hard to do, and other times impossible cuz the colors u want were never available, which was wat happened to me with my car.


instead of spending so much cash getting everything new, i bought some special spray specially for the materials that make up the interiors. i painted my dash, door panels, rear plastic panels, trunk panels, and a few more. as for the roof and inserts, i bought perforated leather by the square yard for about $8 the yard and some 3M spray. the carpet is the only thing i havent gotten yet (still looking to see if i find some place to dye it instead of buying a new one for $100).


Rear section, the grey inserts were re-upholstered by myself:

Dash (picture is a few months old, its cleaned up now):

Roof, you can barely see it since it's black now, but i re-did that too:

dont have a picture of the door panels cuz i finished them afterwards. the car has been with the interiors like that for around 4-5 months and they havent peeled one bit by the tropical sun.

Well... maybe you should stop smoking in your car if you don't like what it does to the interior... just a thought...

i dont mind doing the work since i got alot of time on my hands. ive read/seen that alot of people sprayed their interior for a new color scheme. but the thing is alot of the ones ive seen myself was extremely glossy or gives the appearance that it's been painted/sprayed on.

i was thinking of buying some of the parts and spraying the ones i cant find using my old components. can you give me some advice on what kind of paints work best with certain surfaces?
