hey fella's


i've been wanting to do this for a while and finally got round to pulling the carpet out today...


what do you guys run in your car interior wise?
i would love to have no carpet, sound deadening and limit interior trim inside but am unsure as i'm guessing its going to be hell loud inside the car now that theres nothing to muffle the sound.

also for comfort, my car is a daily driven car which will, once its finished see time at the track.


so yeah, what do you have interior wise in your car and please state whether you think its good, pro's n con's about it ect.


cheers

if your taking everythign out, make sure you make it look neat by spraying it black or something along the lines of that.

also need to get engineering cert for the 2seater your converting it too to make it look "race spec".


wheres the option for leathers and no carpet ???

i'm not stripping it for the looks... she's N/A sr so i need to ditch as much weight as possible so i can do decent skidz but keep it DD so i dont feel like i'm driving some bunky commonwhore.

my interior is pretty much nothing, love it. the noise isn't all that bad, you won't even notice it really. cons, on cold mornings it a prick, like hoping into a shell, so cold. pro's looks good and save's fuel.

ok, so i have to get my car engineered to have no carpet or sound deadening?

what i've done is stripped the boot, taken out the rear seat and have started to remove the sound deadening from under there.
i have also take out the carpet from the cabin, i discovered the carpet was wet under the passenger seat so it prob best i took it out anyway.

will be getting some dry ice to get rid of the rest of the sound deadening soon, the only thing i really noticed was the car is slightly warmer, i could feel alot more warm air around my feet, not really that big a deal but it was defiantly noticeable.


may look into getting some new carpet, mines stuffed, all wet and just looks haggid.

You need a mod plate for taking the rear seats out since your change the car to an two seater from a 4 seater.

From what i understand you have to put bolts in the holes where the rear seat joins the car and rear seat belts have to be taking out and bolts in those holes to. but dont quote me on that bit.

If its a daily driver leave the carpet in.

Luckily i don't drive mine much, no AC and an rb20 with a big turbo means it gets very hot

and very noisy

i give it a month befor you get sick of it

did the same to my n.a S13 removed sound deadening and interior from carpet to seats parcel tray and rear boot
was my daily but also saw the track a fair bit
got over it and put it all back, looks ugly and noise started to get to me

plus dosnt help with drifting lol, maybe the sound deadeding but leave the rest in there
i just use to take the rear seat out when gonig to the track and that was so i could fit my tyres in there

also i got defected for not having a spare tyre and jack
and no interior will attract more unwanted attention

ive seen this car once, and couldnt stop looking at it, Very nicely done mate!.

Hahaha, i love that option.
my set up is done so that it can be in or out within a few minutes. i dont have a spare tyre or jack or any of those , just because the jack broke, and i havnt gotten a new one yet, spare tyre came out and too lazy to put back in.
but when it is all out, i love it, i like the look, it doesnt make a big enough difference on the street, but i just prefer it that way

Don't do it. It won't help you at all and makes everything incredibly noisy, it also devalues your car even more (not that you care, you seem to have ruined a half-decent paint job with pressure packs)...

FFS its NA, why would you bother pulling interier out! It wont make it into a hectic slider, after all how much does things like the rear seat in a S13 weigh...f..all!



...then again after seeing the outside you may as well make the inside match...rough!

read my OP, i've already stripped the car, the carpet was soaking wet so i took it all out, i've already started taking out the sound deadening as i'm not running any carpet and want it to look clean.


picked myself up a welder today so i'm going to teach myself how to weld and then modify some seat rails to mount my z32 seats in the sil.


and with the paint job, its a temp thing, i'm still deciding what direction i want to go with my car, when i decide i'll buy the appropriate kit, and strip it back to bare metal, then give it a nice clean paint job inside n out.
i still dont know if i want to go with an aero front and nismo sides or go something like a vertex kit or a onevia front but when i do decide it'll be stripped and given a good paint job, i've already organised it so it will happen, just need to decide on what i want.

thats what i'm going to do eventually.

i really dont mind how loud the car is, i've got no muffler and twin pipes at the back so the noise isnt a problem.
