In this post, we will demonstrate the process taken to complete a 1979 Volkswagen Super Beetle Interior Repair.
The carpet and rubber floor mat for the Super Beetle is really easy to install. Just make sure to use glue on the vertical sections and as always it pays to order a good kit. We got ours from Wolfsburg West.
The finished carpet with the custom made floor mats in the front.
Here is a shot of the back seat area of the interior. We glued some jute and sound deadner under the carpet to help cut down on the engine noise.
The front floor area. If you notice the right side seems to be missing a panel that fits under the floor mat that angles up from the floor pan. We left this part of the mat loose until we figure out what is suppose to go there.
We rebuilt the back portion of the seat and modified the cover to fit correctly. We also installed the new release cables for the tilt function of the front seats as well as new headrest covers. We put extra sound deadner and padding under the floor mat to eliminate any of the cables or wiring from showing through.
We also relined the bottom foam to keep anything from dropping out of it.
The new carpet and mats looks really good.
We also installed the new e-brake boot and painted the seat belt latches. It is a good idea to order new seat belts to match the new interior.
