interior makeover

Im redoing my interior, im tired of it being dirty and ratty all the time. Im planning on replacing the carpet in my truck with a vinyl carpet, hopefully will make it easier to clean, also I ordered custom seat covers, and weather tech floor mats.

I might change out some if the dash panels and door panels eventually too

Anyone ever do a carpet swap/replacement? Any tips?

The vinyl carpet comin in the mail tomorrow so I'll start it next couple if days, I'll post some pics

I've replaced carpet in a couple of trucks over the years-- take your time and remove everything you can first and it'll turn out great! Be sure to post pictures. Are you going to recover your seats?

Ok so I finally got some time to post some pics, heres the floor replacement:

The seats came out fine with a T55 driver.

It starts with a nasty disgusting mess:


Got all the seats out:


I found out that the previous owner had a dog... really really gross under those seats and I found like 6 forks. And about a hundred .22 rounds:


Putting in the liner that comes with the new carpet, gkueing it down with spray adhesive:



Here's what the new carpet looked like:

Then I slowly started to trim the vinyl liner until it fit, anchored it in place with the seat screws, and that's pretty much it, I had to remove all of the trim pieces, and trim the liner to fit perfectly:


I tried to glue it down too, bit the adhesive never stuck to the vinyl so its not glued, bit neither are the factory carpets anyway, I just ended up with a few more wrinkles than I would have liked:



Put the trim pieces back in. an presto:


Them I pit the seats back in, after vacuuming them: and double presto there it is! An extremely easy to clean floor that will never soak up any liquid and stink really bad ever again!!!!:


It cleaned up the truck really nice. Made it smell new again, its pretty awesome

And then I ordered and installed custom seat covers from shear comfort, the 10 matched the factory interior color of my truck perfectly:

ACC carpets they have everything, it takes them about a week to fabricate it, cost about $180

I was real happy with how it fit, it fit the tranny hump pretty good.

There slip overs, they fit really well though, and they're waterproof.

I thought about it, but can't you put the insulation on underneath the truck? And I could do it on the firewall, the engine side...
