Interior Refurbishment

I've been working to get the interior all completed.  I installed a new carpet from Etsy.  I have to say it's a lot nicer than other kits I've installed in my other 02.  The new headliner from WN was not without its challenges but the end result is straight with no wrinkles.   The rear C-pillar flags were about 6 inches off from where they should have been so I had to detach carefully and reglue them.  I remade the rear shelf and covered with German vinyl and installed the original rear seat with has no tears or splits.   The door cards and rear panels were in fantastic shape.  Fortunately previous owners decided not to  cut speaker holes!    I installed my leather covered dash and it looks and smells amazing.  I had the glass put in by a professional.  I'm too nervous to massage it in on my own.

Thanks!  I wont be cutting them that's for sure.  I was very fortunate that the interior was in such pristine condition.

When you did the headliner, how did you remove the rear view mirror?

It seems glued on and we don't want to break it.

Or did you just go around it?

It should not be glued. It may be corroded and seized. The mirror snaps into place so you will have to work it loose.  grab the neck and work t back and forth, not side to side

Looks great! My Etsy carpet just shipped Friday so I've got this job ahead of me. What color capret is that? Mine is #11 from her website.

 

And is that a tobacco interior? Love the color.

I dont recall the interior color name but its not tobacco, which is q por more brown.   I talked to Etsy and sent her some photos.  She knew right away what it is and made a carpet color recommendation.   It ended up being the perfect pairing

great job. What is the material used in WN headliner, original snake-skin?Also, your passenger side seat belt  d-loop bracket has the wrong plastic cover!

Hats off to you! Its beautiful. I already have indigestion thinking about doing my own headliner in a few months or so. You did a great job with your car.

Thanks all. The WN headliner is the original snake skin. I've heard they aren't selling them anymore due to rod seams coming open and the incorrect c pillar flag locations.  Must be frustrating to deal with the returns.
