Seriously -- Nobody wants to have to spend money on this kind of work.... but in the end -- you're going to be so much happier with the whole car.

Default Seriously!



Do you have to throw all that stuff on my nice interior?



Who needs plastic, not like there's hot metal shavings going everywhere!



carpet, what carpet? " That oil from my shoes will come right off!" - WTF!


Is it so hard to take it out... I had to do it myself on the spot!.

Is it asking too much to respect what's already nice?

So here's what happens in ALL of these remodels.....


Everything LOOKS great - until you do one part of it over... so the trim looks great - until you put on fresh paint - then the perfectly good trim looks like crap -- Seat upholstery looks fresh - until the new dash goes in... The wiring that was fine - isn't any good.... Well -- you get the picture. Trust us ALL on this -- it IS what happens! Oh -- and then the "well as long as we're here we might as well do....." Kicks in too!

As a home builder and remodeler, I don't think this is the norm. I know we go out of our way to cover peoples furniture, carpets, floors,ect... even if it looks like crap, and should be in the dumpster. Unless I've been directly told its going to be tossed..... cover it up!..

Thankfully, that is done and over-with.. the project is past that point, and its looking good!.

You probably moved them accidentally with their new site changes. I did it the other day too. I reverted back to the old version after that.

Default Tubs





Custom....!



nice and tight.. not..

This is why they invented the thick rubber coating.. to cover all this up... and no, I didn't do it myself. I actually paid someone to butcher my car.
