Only thing mate - You could look at doing the top of your centre console box!!! That damn gray!!! And I HATE the door armrest bits on the bloody cars, you can't do anything with them..! Need to find a wrecked LTD Ghia thing and get some different style going on.

All good man - Look forward to seeing your project on screen.

Do you know of a way to colour carpet (I am on a budget and am NOT getting a whole new one made)...?

Well, no I hadn't seen your car gooseman, but I am amazed how similar it is to what I am doing ;)

WHAT DID YOU USE TO BLACK THE BOTTOM PLASTIC OF YOUR FRONT DOORS? I left mine gray as am worried about the paints being removed by feet rubbing on the door pockets.

Okay - Any advice on changing the carpet colour?

ALSO - Very interested in your steering wheel... Let me at it, I want one...

Just buy new carpet buddy. It shouldn't cost anymore than $140 for a full front and rear set. There is really no other way around it.

And just use Septone Plastic and vinyl paint for everything!! It works a treat if you do it right. I only did a little bit at the start just to make sure it wasn't crap and then I did everything! Even the doors. I swear that my plastic scratches before the paint does. It works like a dream. I've done the hard plastic as well as the softer vinyl and it sticks to both surfaces great. It dries nice and fast as well.

Just make sure you surface is clean before painting! I wiped down the surface with a very small amount of thinners and made sure it was dust and crap free then gave it a tack coat of this and then two or three good coats once the tack coat had dried. The paint wears really well. The place where I rest my arm on the door has not yet rubbed off.

As for my wheel. If you want one then you better start saving your pennies!

They're VERY rare and so they sell for anywhere between $400 and $600. Here's my exact wheel... http://cgi.ebay.com.au/Ford-EF-EL-AU-MO ... dZViewItem

If you need anymore help then don't hesitate to ask!

thanks mongoose!
luke (light blue xr, cream interior, turbo set-up) has helped with the paint, so i'll be going down today to see how much i can get them for.

as for the wheel, i'll leave the stock one on for now.
that'll be the last thing i do!

knox auto carpet is down the road, so i can get a full set of carpet done there.
which wont cost too much at all!

im pumped to get this started.

So decided against using Plastic and Vinyl paint? You don't need to primer with that stuff. But then again, yours might stay looking good for longer!

nah we used vinyl dye spray for the vinyls.
for the plastic we used an acrilic satin black with thinner.

it turned out nice, just forgot to spray the primer.

mate...that is a ridiculous amount of plastic bags...where the hell did you get them from? hahahaha

Good to see it's going smoothly :D. BTW, by front pillars you mean the A pillars?

They do come off, you just have to be careful not to snap the plastic clips...I've snapped 2.

phong =P~

the pillars that run along the front window.

i was game enough to take them out.
but i might have to cos they need to be sanded and done again.

as for the bags, just ripped garbage bags in half and covered everything.

Since I have the whole bloody dash out of the Fairmont EF Wagon sitting in the garage roof space I think I will spray it with vinyl paint whilst it's out the car! I also have pulled off the A pillar trim and tried to find a "suede" effect paint in black - but they only make gawd awfull purples and crap like that.

Rank.
