Well you can dye your interior black it's not that expensive but it's time consuming

---------- Post added at 09:40 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:40 PM ----------

And it's relatively easy^

Eff that, less time to just totally swap it. Costs more tho lol.

Before:



After:



Interior pieces were $500 total, carpet was $120 and the foam/upholstery was $800 and I installed it all myself. Used black seats in good shape will run you about $400ish.

I read this thread with great interest. OP, I too share your boring tan UGH interior, and have longed for the day to 'never go back' wink wink nudge nudge...

Scotty, may i ask where you sourced such ebony interiors, and the time it took to redo it all?

You just did ask! Lol. Costs are listed in the post I made with the pics.

I found the interior on the Corral classifieds, well most of it anyway. I got everything minus the 1/4 panels for $400 from a guy 3 hours away. We met halfway and I kicked $20 to him for gas. I got the 1/4 panels for $60 amazingly enough off of Craigslist. Took me about a week to get all the interior panels and such but I was looking every day on all my forums and CL and ebay.

As far as redoing it all. I started at 11AM and finished somewhere around 8PM. I could have done it MUCH faster if I was not trimming/fitting the new TMI carpet and just replacing the carpet with a clean stocker (almost impossible to find a clean carpet that is 15 years old). Also now that I've done it I'd probalby shave 1-2 hours off of it on top of that. The beauty of the 94-98 cars is that they ALL have a black upper interior so you have less to swap.

I would put some chrome effects in it, like door locks and handles etc. Also look for the white reverse gauge on AM! Looks bad *** and the cluster is literally four screws and you take it out. I did it to my car and I love it!

I also hear that 01-04s aren't as easy as replacing the bulbs, apparently they have a green film behind them that must be sanded off

The correct LED bulbs to get that blue effect is a WLED-5 from superbrightleds.com



Note the dim spots which really can't be avoided. Its the same with the stock bulbs but the spread is a little better because they are regular bulbs. I think it looks better. Oh, you can see the HVAC done too. Just pull the radio, remove the bezel, unbolt he HVAC and its 2 bulbs back there.

This is wrong.

99-00 have Cyan film and 01-04 have green film. Is almost impossible to alter the color of the Greens film without actually scraping it off.

If you have 99 00 then you can use any color you want here's a picture of mine. Cool white led on cluster. Bright blue LEDs on my gauge pod and HVAC.
I'll post a pic in a few.

I can speak to this cause I actually did take the cluster apart on a 99 and 01 so I'm speaking from experience not from the land of Oz.

Saw his username and assumed he had a 98.

You need these leds for cluster. HVAC are different. I don't see any dim spots even in daylight. Nice, uniform color. I used Warm White to get Cyan on my cluster and blue on HVAC. I had red=(dark red almost magenta) and Blue=(looked just like HVAC) in the cluster as well.

Went with below because it looks BA at night and other drivers can see my dash.
