New Interior

Hey, a while back i covered my door panels in black suede, well i decided to do some more... I covered my upper dash and A pillars, and my glove box with the same material. I plan on doing the headliner and the B/C pillars.
I also picked up a new Seat and its waiting to go in my car cuz im still waiting for the bracket. heres some pics, all comments/opinions welcomed. Oh and BTW this was a DIY project. Just paid 50 dollars for the material and 10 or so in adhesive.

PICS:






And waiting to go in:

DIY write up please! I plan on doing my whole interior soon and this could be a huge money saver!!


I was told it's a pain to do the headliner due to the material not being made for it. The shop told me they could do it but it will eventually sag. Have you head of anything to this nature?

Well i havent done the headliner yet. I know they make black headliner material, but i really want to stay with the black suede. I also know that there is a different adhesive you should use when doing the headliner. By only looking at it i can guess its gonna be a B*tch. Im especially kinda worried about the sun roof area.
BTW to get the upper dash out you need to take of the lower dash, cd player, center console, steering column and steer wheel, the passesnger side airbag, and the wireing harness for all the electrics...It took me a total of about 6 hours(including two timess where i messed up on putting the material on)
Im going to be doing one of the two B/A pillar covers today

I have no problem tearing the car apart, I'm just wondering the steps to the process even though I think its pretty easy to do. I was quoted 1k for the whole swap of the interior. If I can do everything but the seats I would be a happy camper.

Looks very different. It would look a lot better with black/grey interior pieces. Thumbs up for a unique mod for an Accord.

K well step by step....
1. Remove lower dash
2. remove center console/cd player
3. remove guage cluster and bezel
4. remove glove box
5. Remove the passenger side airbag
6. Remove the wire harness(this part probably makes the most stress)
7. pull the dash out.

then once you get the dash out you need to take that apart(it consists of two large pieces and the ducting for the air conditioning...

heres a pic of how the interior looks once youve finally removed the dash.



good luck to anyone that trys this....and if anyone needs more detailed answers, i can help out as much as possible.

I also wanted to mention that i took it apart today to fix some areas, and i also covered the p.side airbag cover with the suede.

Sorry, I meant how to apply the suede to the dash. Such as what to clean it with and what you used to have it stick.

OOOOOh.... well i just cleaned it with a grease/ahesive remover to take away the mequiars that was on it, then i wash it with soap and water and then rinsed with hot water....
as far as applying it, i used sprayadhesive by 3m, and then around the edges and corners i use hot glue. The hardest part is trimming the fabric and cutting it in the necessary places to make it fit. It helps it youve wrapped other things..

Only reason i chose it was because ive had good luck with 3M in the past and i trust them. Another kind i used was called Permatex All purpose spray adhesive. I put a few coats on it and lay down the material before the spray sets up, that way its more of a permanent bond between the two.

Looks good. The only prob that I hate with suede is that when it is not all going in the same direction and you get funny look spots on it but anyways hott DIY.

Damn....thats nice bro. Definitely very unique, so four thumbs up! Although its not my style do cover up the dash, I would only do the small parts on the door panel. That suede look just looks un-smooth since the material is that way.
