Do you have some before and after pics?
This is the only picture I could find of the original interior, with my hood in my trunk I might add...

Guess next time if you buy a used tire you might want to pay close attention to the tread. Sucks to see the damage.

On a side note I found my FF pimp card sheet that peeps can print off and give to other peeps

Cool. We need these with the "Team Focalize" included on it. Print some out Justin or send it to me in an email. I'd like to tag that 05-07 SAP ZX3 I see from time to time.

So, as I slowly work on my interior I decided to try and take the cloth covered inserts off the rear doors. Was afraid it was going to be real difficult because on the Kona the inserts are made out of this pressboard material which the glue would not let go of. Consequently they got pretty tore up while fighting to take them off. Imagine my pleasant surprise to find on my 03 zx5 these inserts are made out of an abs type plastic. They took a little effort but came off in about 5 minutes in perfect shape. Now I hope the fronts are the same. /share moment.

Yeah. I'm guessing they only did that pressboard stuff on the 00 and maybe 01. Just glad on my 03 they were ABS. They even kept their contoured shape after I pulled them off. Now to cover them in red leather :)
