hey guys it's been a long weekend.

first of all a tip for anyone respraying the interior.
don't forget to spray the plastics with primer.
we forget to spray the front pillars (which dont come out) with primer.
so today it was all cracked.
and as you can see in the photos, we covered everything from head to toe in tape and plastic bags.
so once you've taken it all out (which mind you, took hours to put in) and you find you forgot to primer it, you tend to get pretty p****d off!
so the pillars are going to be re-done this week.

pretty much everything else went smooth.
the dash looks insane (pics soon when everything has dried and been put back in).

here's a few pics of day 1 and 2!
enjoy guys =]

The only way I know how is to remove the steel hook retainers that hold the covers in place. Once they are removed you should be able to just peel them off...or unfold them off. If not, attempt cutting the threads with a sharp knife...that way you don't have to undo the stitches one by one once the cover is off...2 birds with one stone.

oh cheers mate!
cos im going to completely take everything out of the car, all seats.

i know the retainers are on there, and ive been told that its expensive buying a machine to re do the retainers.
so id just use some other way of keeping them in once i put the new interior on.

blwn EF use small cable ties instead. much easier then hog rings!! but hog ring pliers arent too dear these days.

remember if you cut the covers off you then have to somehow get them back on. so you would be better off undoing the clips and taking it off as an auto trimmer would so you know exactly how they go back on.

if you go leather i hope your skilled with it so you dont end up with loose sagging leather which looks dodgy

Dude - Good idea...

I found it pretty easy to get this far --- Am now trying to get black leather seats... Have changed EVERY interior light other than "spotlights" to BLUE LED's - awesome...

So far all this has cost me under $150 - but a lot of my own time!
