My 1991 interior is a little shabby and needs some new skin. I want to vynl the whole interior but don't exactly know what the best way to do it is. I'm sure there's some type of special vynl for doing a car but don't know what kind and where to get it. If anyone's got some tips on how to do it or know where to find the products, let me know. Also if there's people that have re-done their interior post the pics, i'd like to see what the possibility's are.

i dont want to do stock colors though. I wanted to do something that would match the exterior for example, dark green with silver gray accents. And yeah an upholstry shop could do it easily, but i'm thinking more on the cheaper side.

You could always go to an uphostry shop and try to find info on where to get vinyl. They may be able to sell you some or give you a place to call.

When i did my interior in my 90 i took mt heed liner down and covered that in white vinyl. i also took the two pieces of the door panels and covered those with white vinyl. Just doing the doors made a huge diffrence. i just went to the fabric store you would be amazed at what the old ladies think. Then you can get some leather or vinyl and do your shift boot. You can also make it look pretty bad ass with a steering wheel seats and stuff like that.

Do you have any pictures of this? Is this hard to do with all the curves in the door panels? Did you use the spray-on adhesive too?

At my local place I can get just about any color for $7-$10 a yard (which is wicked cheap)...just ask them where they source thier vynil, the warehouses will usually give you whatever you need and you can cut out the middle man (sorry I should been more specific).

click on the 96 gs that was my show car i did all the interior myself.

its simple to spray but to do vinyl or leather when you get it make sure it doesnt have that cotton material on the back. DO NOT USE spray glue its just garbage and will make your material bubble. use a niec roll on or paint on glue and work out all bubbles and let sit before you do the edges. take your time, good quality takes time.

if you are painting fabric get fabric paint its expense but you only need 1 can for 1 seat. the carpet takes 4 cans or more if you do trunk and it goes on nice i never did it to my own seat but i did them on a friends and it looks really nice.

to paint plastic make sure you clean it very well and dry it and put 2 coats of primer on. spray your color on next like 2-3 coats while sanding in between, on the last time sand it down and wash the dust off and clear coat, repeat with sanding you should use 300 grit but no lower then 220.

hope this helps
