Did interior work past couple weeks between going to school and driving home... drove home this weekend to finish it all

installed:
80sq/ft sound deadening
blue accents to the cluster
got rid of the overhead console
black A B C pillars
new headliner with only the dome light re-covered black

Before


Middle



(drove this way for 2 weeks)

During






Sound Dead In


(inside the doors and taped back up...)

(went to get sodas and pizza and came back to this, lil overkill but it works WELL)

(cant see it but its 2 layers of deadening under that carpet)

2 layers on the roof, floor, 1 on the door skin, 1 on the door panel, 1 on the hatch, 1 on the back plate.

With the sound deadening done i quick swapped rims into winter mode :-\

B4


after :\


then it went on the the head liner and pillars that i had done 2 weeks ago...


Black pillars and head liner


Dont mind the visors.... i need to figure how or where im ganna do those... for now i need them in though.





Small mod to the cluster...


Light still shows nicely...

Final product






Also as a note i went from having an overhead massive compartment for sunglasses and shit that i didnt like, so i got a headliner from a salvage car with only the dome light and now i love it! Visors will be done soon... comments?

hours wise?

headliner recovering - 1 hour
painting pillars - 2 hours + touch ups
cluster - 30 min.
deadening.... - All sat. :p

basically it woulda been a weekend job only took 3 weeks because i ripped the headliner/ pillars out and painted/ covered them, then said while its off i should sound deaden... so i ordered and had to wait... then go back to my parents house again this weekend to put it together when i got the deadening in...

So is it whisper quiet now?

BTW, Any thoughts on black sun visors?
its insanely quiet all i hear is mild exhaust rumble unless i gun it... and the audio sounds great for stock now!

unfortunately i only got to drive it on the winter rubber so that may make a difference but still really quiet... all i hear is wind now [rolleyes]

no really close close ups... more wide shots but i assure you they look factory...

we took our time and put like 3 light coats on then 1 kinda heavyish coat on but never to heavy it looks just like the gray did but in black... its sweet

makes a world of difference, i dont care i added 40lbs to the car.... F that sounds great, close the door its a solid thud not a bunch of rattling crap...

That micro suede headliner looks sick also.
yeah that was fun to do... i was shocked my dad and i got it done so easily...

Is micro suede anything like ultra suede?
no idea, but the micro suede i got was VERY stretchy which made the whole process easier...
