    Any reason for not running the style 5 center caps? Someone made nice aluminum replacements, not sure if they are still available.

    Will do! Can't say I expect them to last forever but from looking over them the quality seems alot better than expected.

    I've run style 5s and 19s in the past. I just wanted to try something different with them. I still have the center caps so if I want to change up the look again I can always paint en and throw them on.

    I dig the seats, if you don't mind me asking, how much did they cost?

    So I finally got around to changing the valve cover gasket and refinishing the valve covers.







    Pulled out the driver's seat and the center console. Going to dye the carpets black, the dash and center console is going to flocked, can't find an exact match so I ordered a few samples to see which will complement the seats and the rest of the interior.



    Colorwise I'm leaning towards the light brown.

    Lol me neither. Seems like there are a wide variety of color choices. Unfortunately these seat colors are such a wierd shade it's going to be hard to match it, so now I'm considering either a deep brown flocking or black.

    I was considering flocking the headliners as well, but more than likely I'm just going to wrap it in suede along with the pillars. I'm just going to roll some adhesive on it and sprinkle the fibers on top. Fast and easy is the name of the game lol

    Got the valve cover back on, got the wheels and tires mounted. Going to lower it first before I decide what size spacers I need.

    Thumbs up

    Slowly making progress on this. Wish i had a garage to work in because it rains just about everyday i dont have to work . Dropping the car off friday to get the coilovers put in so thats some good news. Other than that i had a chance to flock some interior parts, havent even pulled the dash yet but i feel like im going to regret it. When pulling apart the center console just about everything started breaking and disintegrating no matter how gentle i was with it, going to have to get creative to put everything back together. Im halfway considering just leaving the dash in place and flocking it in the car.



    Once i got everything out, i cleaned it with acetone, wiped it down and brushed on the black adhesive. I used a kit from Just Flock It, everything was pretty straight forward.









    Came back the next day and it was dry, feels super soft like velvet or suede. i feel like i did pretty good application wise, there are a few small spots on the bottom that werent completely covered in the fibers.





    Tossed it all back together to see how it looks, nothing is bolted back in yet. All the wood trim is going to be wrapped in black brushed vinyl. the door card and rear seats are going to be painted to match the front seats. So far it think its looks pretty awesome cant wait to refinish the rest of the interior.

    The flocking looks great, does it feel like it will hold up being touched? I need to look when I get home, I feel like I might have some interior paint that is damn close to those seats, but I could be very far off. Check with eastwood, they sell some vinyl paint in lots of colors and I painted seats something similar years ago. Doing the dash in place might not be a bad idea if your having that many problems with things breaking. I dealt with that trying to fix my friends E10 center console.

    Edit: https://www.eastwood.com/camel-inter...-12oz-net.html Thats the paint I used on my seats.

    Wow that flocking turned out nicely, I'm going to have to look into that for my MKIV,

    Your interior has already come such a long way, can't wait to see more progress. As for the dash, probably best to leave it in given the age of the car and all the plastics- assuming you can still achieve a nice result trying to flock in-car.

    It seems pretty durable only time will tell. I feel like it should hold up decently well since it's only going to be on the dash and center console which won't get touched that often. It looks like sem camel or palomino might be a close match. I've got a few cans of those coming in the mail to compare.

    Thanks, it was super easy to do. Feels pretty nice to the touch also just curious to see how long it'll hold up. And the more I think about it the less I want to pull the dash lol .

    New front suspension is in, definately tightened up the feel ok the front end. Next step is to get the coils on. Did a tune up and swapped out the filter, was hopeing for a bit more sound but it sounds exactly the same







    Decided to pull of the rear door cards to prep them. It was surprisingly easy considering they were only being held on by one lonely screw. All the clips were long gone and it was nice to find more of that lovely deterioration. Not sure if it's water damage or what but the bottom of these door card basically feels soft and flexible like leather. Might be smarter to see if I can find some replacements at the junkyard

    Almost looks like mold at the bottom of the door cards, I would probably try to source new ones if possible.
