      If you are going to paint the dash, get door and quarter cardboard carpet and seat skins. I am guessing that would be around 2,000.00. You could save some money by dying things.
      Big job to do that. Wish you luck!

        I look at a car on a restoration basis as:
        Body & Paint, Front End Trim, Rear End Trim, Chassis Rebuild, Engine Rebuild,
        Transmission Rebuild, Brakes, Interior, Dash, Wiring, etc.
        Just break the car down into sections, then it gets a lot easier.
        On the interior examine and determine what can be reused then estimate prices on what you need and add them up. On a complete color change you are looking at:
        Seat Covers, Carpet, Headliner, Door Panels, Package Tray, and Paint Work and Dye for Doors, Kick Panels etc. Then there is the Dash. Dash Pad or Dying if good, Color change on the Dash.
        Depending on what labor you can do yourself will determine the price.
        My guess materials and labor, you doing nothing.
        Interior $2500
        Dash $1800

Herb's vinyl paint. Also got the TCP paint out of CA. for the dash 75 buck's A quart.

            I'd budget 3K

            2K for seat covers and another K plus a LOT of labor to dye or replace the rest.
