well its been some time since I've done anything thing to my 95 eh2 and like most of the 92-95 civic guys/gals out there I too hate my gay gray interior.

so Ill be redoing everything in the car black. so I pick up the paint tomorrow and ill start the project on Saturday. ill be posting pics as I go and hope this inspires others to take the leap and start another or their first DIY

Ive already gutted the car minus the dash....thats coming out saturday morning

its very time consuming but is worth it, and when its all done it will be like having a new car.

Im going to redo my stock back seats in leather and put integra DA front seats in the front also redone.

agreed, but is well worth it when done. the seats idea sounds good too, i've been trying to pick up either some acura leather seats or recaro's for some time now

oh and i recommend you give it all a good cleaning after your done painting. i bought some armor-all that you spray clean with and it protects the dash and such, which is good for your application because it will protect the paint nice

Was gonna ask the same thing, what paint did you use?

Also, just FYI, DA seats won't fit in EG. I tried :P
Get DC gsr cloth, had them before and they were ok. Though the DA seats with adjustable bolsters are soo nice.

what would I have to change on the DA seats to make them work if I have to build brackets or any metal work, Im a welder so custom fab is what I do best
