Cleaning up the interior
#1
What interior carpet trim did the sprint come with? I'm ordering the carpet from OMS and wasn't sure if the coupe or mach 1 carpet was used. TBH, I'm not even sure what the difference between them would be, but I figure better safe than sorry and figure it out before I order it.

I'll post some pics of the interior build when I get the new parts in. Ordered a dash pad, new door panels, arm rests, sun visors (the bracket was also missing and I'm getting pretty tired of getting hit in the face with a sunvisor every time I turn lol) and hopefully tonight the new carpet. Next week I'll get a new gauge/glovebox trim. Also waiting on some interior dye from NPD to refinish the interior quarter panels and trim. Smile

As far as I know it was the standard carpet with the heel pad only on the drivers side. That's what is in my convertible and I would suspect all the other sprints were equipped the same.

Thanks! Smile

Edit:

I've been reading a lot about how easily the ACC carpet gets messed up, are there any alternatives yet? My stang is a daily driver, so the carpet would get trashed if the ACC carpet is as bad as everyone is saying it is.

As far as I know ACC is the only producer. A monopoly is not a good thing.

vamach1 is correct, standard carpet, 1 heel pad
acc is now the only one

Don't waste your time doing the plastic parts with npd interior dye Sem is the the only way to go for the PLASTIC parts. The color won't match nor will it stand the test of time. Their dye is good for the METAL dash only..I've dyed many interiors & the only product that matches & stands up is SEM.

This is what I have for dye that I had gotten from NPD

Is that the SEM you mentioned for the plastics? I planned on using it tomorrow on both the plastic and metal. Still prepping the pieces tonight and tomorrow morning.

I tore the old carpet out and luckily it wasn't as bad under there as I thought, but no build sheet. Put the new black carpet in and a humphugger console because having ice cold drinks between my legs when I'm driving is getting a little.. chilly. I'll take a picture of the interior as it stands completely re-assembled in the morning. In the excitement I somehow managed to forget to take the "Done!" picture.

A poorly angled photo of the ripped up dash, half-there steering wheel and interior as I bought it. Missing most of the trim and coming with a SEXY blue carpeted dash cover.. Dodgy

Ripping out the old carpet. I was hoping to find a build sheet but I didn't get that lucky this weekend. Cheesy but-functional steering wheel and a replacement dash from Don.

The worst of the rust was in the rear-driver, where you can see a hole in the floor pan. This picture makes it look a lot worse than it is, most of the color in this is from the old underlayment and the rust was mainly in the rear-driver. I cleaned it up and put down the new underlayment. I'll plan on new floor pans in the winter when I get to the body shop.

Old dirty carpet and the last remnant of blue that was in the interior. Not sure why the P.O. didn't take care of replacing the carpet. Then again I'm also not sure why he ruined a Sprint.

No more carpet. I lucked out on the front floor pans, they were a lot healthier than I was expecting after seeing the rear. Will still get replaced this winter.

New carpet is in and I'm taking a little break. After reading horror stories about this ACC carpet fraying so easily I picked up a set of Black/White GT floor mats which are here on monday hopefully. My current mats are original and missing most of their rubber, they're also now the most unpleasant looking thing in the interior.



So now I'm waiting on the mats to finish off the black/white aesthetic, and to dye the interior either plastic, metal or both tomorrow and get them in.

Ordered new door panels, arm bases and cushions to clean up the doors tonight from Don. I need to start remembering to order things on thursdays so I don't have to spend next weekend waiting on monday for my parts to always arrive! Tongue

Outside that, that finishes up the essentials for the interior. Pioneer 6x9 500W 6W's in the rear with Pioneer's up front and an Alpine amp in the trunk, now the interior is cleaned up and the humphugger console is starting to grow on me, just need to get the shifter flush. I plan on installing power windows and will most likely put the switches on the console.

To all the purists, I deeply apologize. Seeing as this is my main transportation and I'm still starting out my career I needed to make a few slight adjustments to update the car a little bit for daily practical use. But I'm not throwing anything out and I still have a lifetime to fix my restomodding sins. Wink

Got a pic of the interior as it is after new carpet and the console. Just got new Black/White GT floor mats in today to replace those worn out ones and match the color scheme better. Tomorrow I pull all the plastics to be cleaned and recoated with matching SEM.

The thin panel that the rear-speakers sit through is cracked and still blue. I don't know what it's called to find a replacement, anyone know what that cardboard vinyl piece is called up behind the rear seats under the windows? I'd try to salvage what's there but it's in really rough shape.

The new door panels and arm rests came in but the mail room isn't open until Monday, so I'll try to free some time up and get them in during the week.

Thats it and the repops suck. What was suggested to me to use 1/4 in fiber board from your local do it yourself store and use your old one for a pattern. IE Lowes/HomeDepot
