Complete interior panel painting and recarpeting

Well since finding a black interior was turning out to be near impossible, then I decided to just paint my interior and recarpet it. I'm having to go one section at a time since it takes a lot of time and $$$ for paint. But I'll continue to post pics updating my progress. So far....

I also repainted all the roof pieces such as the lights and visor clamps silver. Just to go with the black and silver scheme.

Taking the roof off was a pain in the @ss. Your have to take all the pillar panels off and all the lights that are in the roof. After that it pretty much just pops out. The real pain was taking the beige panel out of the sunroof. That required taking almost the whole sunroof assembly out(if you want specifics then let me know). But once you get the roof out, all i did was go get some fabric( I got mine from walmart for like $9.00) and some fabric spray adhesive. Just remember the fabric needs to have some give so you can mold it like you want. Then just spray it down and smooth it out. After that I cut the edges down and glued the edges to the back of the panel so there is no way it will come down. And that was pretty much it.

The visors was alot easier. Just pry from the middle and it will completely pop open. Then just spray it down and glue the edges and then pop it back together. I covered up my visor mirrors since I never use them anyway. But if you want to keep those then it might be a little more difficult. I also took the oh **** handle out of the roof since those serve no purpose either.

I wanted something that I knew what the color looked like and how it would match my interior. Plus I have never been much of a fan of dye.

Id keep an eye for chipping with it. I've heard from several people that plasti-kote paint is really crappy.

as long as you clear coat it, it shouldn't chip.

Well yesterday I finished all the rear panels and the front pillars. This weekend I'm going to try and do my doors(for the most part). Im going to take the beige cloth out but Im not going to paint under it. Im going to wait and get it redone when I take my rear seats off to get reupholstered. I'll post pics when I'm done with the doors. After that I got to wait til I get my carpet situation figured out. I dont want to dye it so I'm going to have to find a salvage yard that has one. I need to get one from there since there are some other parts that I need to get as well(mainly seat belts and door seals). Plus when I paint the dash I'm putting in my new headunit and running all the new wires for my audio setup in the back. So it's definitely a fun time for me!!!!
