Givin the CC Interior A Makeover... Need help

So I just bought a 97 CCLB 350. Before it goes for paint (body work mostly) I MUST have a decent interior. The way it is now is not terrible by any means, but it needs some touchin up. 1. Dash- not cracked or broken, just scratched a lil and well.. ugly/dirty. Replace or Dashmat? Anybody got experience with that? 2.Carpet (or lack thereof) Rubber floor, no bueno for me, I prefer carpet, best place to get it? 3. Door panels and window/ lock switches! Does anybody know where to look for these things? Junkyard is doin me no justice. I need some direction. Please let me know if you guys know where to begin.

welcome to the ORG, have you checked LMC? and as far as a few scratches and dirty dash just pull it and clean it, the drivers side door panel and rear doors are going to be next to impossible to find since the crew cab with rear power windows was only made from 94.5-97, so 3 1/2 year stint and everyone else with a crew cab is looking for those colors too

good luck and

351 is spot on with the door panels. i plan on running RC panels with switches for rear windows in my center console.

carpet can be found on ebay for just over 2 bills. my vinyl floor was 2 piece, not sure if they all are. i robbed EC carpet, cut it about 6" past where the rear vinyl section began and tucked it underneath. i have 3 young kids so i wanted the vinyl in the rear for cleaning reasons .

Thanks to 351fifty and JBRIXEN for the advice. And the RC panels w/ a relocated rear switch, genius. Let me know how you pull that off if you dont mind. The wiring would be an obstacle for me. Relocation of the switch, no problem. Makin em function... properly...
Different story. Thanks again guys.

i cant take full credit for the window switch in the center. it was a 90's gm car thing. i am going to be modding my XLT center, getting rid of the seat portion and making a custom center console. wile retaining the arm rest and cup holders. really like the look and comfort of the factory center, but i have a 5 speed. so no one sits in the front center anyway.

smokin, i sent you a pm

For anyone who may have read this, this thread was brought to my attention and just incase there was anyone else that hasnt seen it... Read it, even if youre not tryin to refurbish your interior. It'll make you think.. if not its just plain cool...

95 F350 Interior Upgrade

It was also brought to my attention that for some plastic breaks/ cracks. Liquid nails and epoxy might be the way to go if you just cant find replacement panels...

thats what i was wondering, ive got 2 red SC panels in great shape. just the switch bulge didnt match up. they look to be i guess fused together with plastic rivets or melted together or somethin. so you just use shallow screws? is there a write up for reupholstering those that show s how to take em apart and put back togethere without totally destroying them?
