Re: 97 3500 454 4x4 project

I have been following elsewhere about spraying the trim charcoal/black combo. My cabin roof lining is slowly coming down, so was looking at retrimming it in charcoal to match. Just got to find where to get new seat covering to match.

Getting a little done today. To make sure sure the sound deadener sticks well I wash the floor well then go back over with windex. Half done, cooling off, then back at it.

Done for the day. Just need some aluminum tape for the seams, pick up some padding and install a carpet. I may put my headliner up before the carpet, but I've got to recover it first.

Hey, before you start to reinstall the plastic trim at the rear, could you take some pics of the tabs and clips please. I will need to get mine out without damage because there is none around here.

Very nice, I regret not laying down some sound/thermal insulation when I swapped interiors in my crew cab.

Thanks! I can definitely tell it doesn't have the empty tin can sound when I rap on the roof, back, or floors. I still have plenty to do the inside of my doors as well, so I'll have that up too. I'm back on nights this week so I may be Monday before I get back at it.

There are three screws here, very easy to get to from the front, in the top pic. On the bottom pic you can see a plastic tab and a metal clip on the backside, use my pen and the speaker grill as a reference.

But before you get the pillar trim you have to take the top back trim off. There are two screws for the dome light and two on the far corners, sorry about the sideways pic.. There are also three clips at the very back, these are tricky, probably the most easily broken so be careful here. Good luck and let me know if you need anything else.

Mate, that's fantastic. I recon I can do that. Just those couple of pics make it so that I am not delving in blind and that makes it sooo much easier. I will try and make a tool to get to those tabs without breaking them, at least to assist. Thanks heaps.

Terrick,
The middle trim may also have to come off, night shift brain is foggy at times, and of course the sill cover and seat belt screw will have to be taken off. I'm about to head in to work, but I'll check tomorrow and get picks of the middle trim clips if it needs to come off too.

Terrick,
You may be able to slide the pillar trim out, but here are the clip locations for the middle back trim. The ones along the lower bottom of the trim should pop out first, then the ones that face down from the top.

Re: 97 3500 454 4x4 project

This is soo cool, i have started to save all these pics so i can get it done as soon as i get all my stuff ready.
Have started to try and get some factory style new coverings from the front and back seats that i have got for it, i think they are out of a 98. I will post some pics next week on my page.
Better run, going on a boat cruise up the Yarra river in Melbourne with the other people from the pump conferance that DW and i are attending.
Thanks again for all the info.

Time for the headliner. It wasn't just horrid, but sagged in a few spots, had a few tears, and was full of dirt. Job number 1 was to pull the old fabric off then the foam off. I had to use a small wire wheel to get the foam off. If you do be very light with it so as not to gouge the board.

Re: 97 3500 454 4x4 project

I bought 6.5 feet of grey fleece from wal mart and 2 cans of 3m77. I laid the fabric out till I was happy with it then folded it over to do one half at a time. Sprayed the fabric and board, let them get tacky and smoothed it out with just my hands. Still have to trim it out, but turned out nice.
