    stripping my van interior any advise?

    Gona take the whole interior out and give everything a good clean in the van. Think theres lots of dust from its work horse days lodged. Going to replace the carpets and fit the elecric window loom and dash.

    Just wondered if how hard it was to remove the dash, carpet etc. Any hidden clips or bolts I need to watch out for?


    Also has anyone removed the astra g van rear floor panaling. Been told to just drill the spot welds and should lift out

    Dash removal is quite easy if you take your time and remember how it all goes back together, there is a few pics in one of my threads with my dash completely out if you wanna have a look to see what your jumping into. lots of little bolts and dont forget the ones under the window as there isd a removable strip concealing a few bolts, tug that too hard when forgetting to undo them might do some damage

    Also carpet is easy to remove except the fact that it is 1 piece and goes around the gear linkage, it will need cutting to remove it.

    good luck
