Carpet

My interior carpet is disgusting and faded. What can be done. Can it be removed and re dyed? Or should i just replace it entirely?

Has anyone done this???

Get new carpet. Old disgusting carpet just looks like new disgusting carpet if you dye it.

I've done it a few times. Go to World Upholstery they have it all and are great people to work with.

I replaced mine last year....made a world of difference.
It wasn't that difficult of a job, My dad and I did it in one day.

Did you go with "molded" or "cut and bound"? How much of the dash (if any) did you have to remove?

I've done both molded and C&B. Depends on what you are going for. If you want a 100% stock look go molded. I like the stripped out look without any sound deadening pads or insulation so I prefer cut and bound.

I've also done both OEM German and Domestic Loop and again it depends on your intentions. The domestic stuff is still pretty good carpet just does not look the same as your original carpet.

Get the carpet and a couple cans of 3M trim adhesive and go to town. Should take a day or so if you stick with it. The seat back and all the buttons around the hatch area are the most time consuming parts of the install.

My carpet/sound deadening was in poor condition, I replaced the sound stuff with dynamat and carpet padding, used the carpet kit from Original Fit Interiors (Fair, no better, no worse), and it took me about 12 hours. I have an early.
