Car interior makeover ideas

Why not give your cars interior a complete makeover? You don’t have to put up with the hard wearing manufacturer fabrics and plastic surfaces. Customize the interior of your car with a total makeover from new seats, to leather dash trim and custom steering wheels for a clean stylish look that reflects your personality.


Plastic painting tips for car interior and exterior.

Personalising the interior of the car is for many the first thing they do. Although aftermarket interior modification parts look nice a custom look is within reach if you are prepared to put in a little effort and paint the interior yourself.

Preparation is the most important part in any paint work. Whatever is between the part and the paint (i.e. chips, scratches, grease etc.) will show through the layers of paint.


Re-upholstery for your car from seats to dashboard.

Why put up with the boring colours and fabrics that manufacturers use to design a car interior. TorqueCars members have tried just about every interior mod available from custom re-upholsters to swap in aftermarket parts.

Most cars come with black and grey interiors and sometimes navy blue or a slight coloured cord finish and sometimes if you are lucky a slight variation in the fabric but from a distance it will still look dull.
