Old Interior Carpet Removed

My brother's beater car is a 1997 Dodge Stratus 4 door sedan. The car is in good shape besides the dingy worn interior carpet.

We discovered that it's possible to order entire car interior carpet replacement kits for just about any automobile, truck or van.

In preparation of the new interior carpet kit's arrival, we removed the car's seats, the center console, plastic trim pieces, shifter knob and the old stained worn out carpet.

The new interior carpet replacement kit arrived VIA UPS in a large rectangular box. We had to unroll the new car carpet and let it settle down a bit.

The new interior carpet replacement kit was cut to perfection by a computer assisted machine (according to the manufacturer's installation instructions) so it didn't require any trimming or adjustment. All we had to do was lay down the car's new carpet on the metal interior and make sure that the bolt holes for the seats lined up. The hardest part of the whole procedure was putting the front seats back in the car.

In the pictures above you can see that we have installed the new interior carpet replacement material and the back seat is in place in the car. Right away, I could see that this was a great way to restore an almost 9 year old car to look relatively new.

Well I hope you enjoyed this informal guide to restoring an older car with a brand new automotive interior carpet replacement kit. These interior carpet replacement kits are available for most makes and models of cars, and they cost anywhere from $150 to $300 depending on how large your car is or the manufacturer.
