No, when I say they were knackered, I mean they were absolutely shot. Ripped leather, the inserts were falling off, even the cardboard was damaged. Besides, the new interior was quite cheap so I couldn't be bothered with trying to fix anything in the old one.
Now I need new floor mats (which prove to be a pain to get a hold of in UK, as my car is LHD ) and a new head lining and pillars. Or maybe just re-upholster them my self.
Check out my thread i just told you about i done the roof lining today took me about 2 hours start to finish inc a cuppa tea break aswell. Tbh the hardest part was putting the roof lining back into the car because you need to hold it up and try and screw it into place at the same time, that was the hardest bit out of it all. Im doing the side pillars when i next get paid in a few weeks,
i covered mine in black velvet material, the material cost me £12.57 then 2 cans of special headlining glue for £9.99 off the internet. If you do do the roof lining on your own let me know and i will send you the link to the glue. I used 2 cans bit it needs to be high heat stuff because it gets really hot inside your car and if you dont use the right glue when it gets to the first hot day it will all come apart.
sure, here we go
Firstly the front seats need to go.
Push the seats all the way forward and undo the 2 bolts at the back of the runners. Once there out slide the seat back and remove the plastic caps and undo the 2 front nuts.
Once all the nuts and bolts have been removed tip the seat back and undo the clip at the bottom of both front seats then remove the seats from the car.
then hover the carpets, pop inside and mix the dye up. I used half a bag to 1 liter but wish i had used the whole bag so i will prob go over mine in a few days time.
Then once its mixed start the dying . Just a tip i lifted up the rear seat bench so i didnt get any dye on it.
Just a tip use gloves or your hands will end up like this
