How much hassle is involved in changing the interior of a VT? I figure seats and door and easy change outs, carpets and roof slightly annoying. How hard is the dash etc to obtain and change?

Estimated cost of job to go from Standard Beige interior to Standard Grey interior.

Cheers

As you say the seats and doors are the easy part. From my experience the roof, dash and carpet turned out to be a lot harder than I thought. I did it years ago on a Citroen and about half way through I regretted starting. It took days and days to pull everything out and then it never went back the same.

Although, if you dont need to replace the top part of the dash as they are all grey, and just need to do the bottom parts such as the glovebox, then that will save a lot of hassle.

It is a big project and I would only consider if you have patience and time.

Dang. Can you actually get the genuine dash in grey or is it an aftermarket or painting job? What does the dash usually go for?
