Yesterday, I became fed up with the large rip that I had forever. Heres what it looked like:





So I went to a fabric store, found some vinyl, and came home and put it on. It was fairly simple





Of course its a little brighter brown, but Im sure age will bring it back
The pic makes it look brighter too. I dont care because its way better than before!

Thanks everyone. If you want to know how to do it let me know, but its really just common sense.



That looks real good. ?No more shredded interior ?
LOL Honestly, the seats have problems too especially driver side. You can see some of the rip in the middle at the bottom of the second pic. New seats might be the next investment

I see that. Check E-bay for seats. You could get sone really nice ones.




What are you planning to fix next? Bumper, rust or seats? I am going to fix some rust and scratches on my bumpers this summer. I hate rust. If I have more time, I will be making my own custom airdam. 8)

It will fit. Many members on EF have done the swap. The only thing I can think of that might be different would be the fog plugs, but I am almost 100% sure they are the same. The bumper will be shinier than your whole car




That rust will get a lot worse if it goes through another winter.
