Gone ratty seat box cover and dry rotted mats!
Old seat box covers were frayed, dry rotted and ripped. Mats and "insulation" was dry rotted and falling apart, noise and heat coming from the engine and tranny was excessive- so I bit the bullet and bought the 3 piece Exmoor Mat set on "sale" from RN~$700 ouch! I now know why it is so expensive- ~70lb close to 1/2 thick in some places and shipped from the UK. Pain in the butt to install- remove seats, console('97 irreplaceable- one wrong move..), hand brake, radio, hood latch, AC covers, etc, etc.. Cutting, Cursing, trimming and cajoling the console finally lined up and the trim price over the auto shift valance popped and stayed in!!! The end result was worth the effort and sweat! Here are the pictures before and after. lots of tricks that I wish I knew before I started..still have a few screws left over and haven't a clue where they go... So far everything is together and it all works!
