November 12, 2004I'm currently on my 2nd project right now. I have the roll pan the shaved tailgate and so forth...just a small start..i want to do the interior. theres this chick that lives in my town that redid most of her interior in tweed. how much would that cost to do 2 door panels, headliner, and dash. also..i hate to be not color coordinated, but what would be the best color material to go w/ gray seats and carpet. Something else i've seen is painting the plastic/vinyl side panels and dash. which would look better? which would have better quality?
November 12, 2004Haha...also (sorry for posting twice on my own thread) ..how hard would it be to do either of these. I would need some guidance anyone really good at these 2 things?
November 12, 2004you can usually find tweed for around 14-17 dollars a yard i did my doors and headliner and pillar arm and kick panels and center console i think i used about 4-6 yards i dont remember and if you do it yourself it will save you a lot of money too. tweed is really easy to do it strecthes rather easily well good luck hope this info helps
November 13, 2004i didnt think i could do the hole tweed thing to good and my cousin can draw out flames pretty good so i just painted my interior looks aight i guess but im about to just tweed or fiberglass my hole dash anit sure which yet i might have some pix of my interior in my gallery anit real sure you can look and see what my paint came out to look like
November 13, 2004I used a DA sander and sanded my plastic panels down till the were smooth requires almost no filler or glass I found 180 grit to work best other wise if its to gritty you get a lot of hair on the plastic and then use like a 320 to smooth it out and hit it with build up primer and shoot the paint. It's a lot eaksier then tweed for me.
November 13, 2004hey fr8m u wouldnt happen to have any pictures of your interior would you?
November 13, 2004this anit really on topic but im in sc alot and never heard on donalds what like big city it close like myrtle beach columbia spartenburg chesne anderson gaffney blacksburg just some of the places i know
November 13, 2004yo south im not sure if i do or not i have sold my ranger and am working on 2 b2200's right now i will try and find one and get it posted here too me the tweed looks better but to each his own you know i have seen some phat paint jobs too. good luck
November 13, 2004hey ace....i know donalds is really small but theres 1 thing...i just put a zip code in i dont really like putting things like that on the net...i live in anderson. i've been to shelby before. i went to see this chick that lived there that i met at the beach 1 time. yea fr8m if you could find those pics i would greatly appreciate it. i found some tan tweed on like a "clearance" part of a website for like under $10, but i dont know what that would look like w/ gray. my whole truck on the inside is gray besides the console thats black. so i need to spice it up ne ideas on that?
