I'm toying with the idea of stripping my tan interior out of my black '94. It's in reasonably good shape, but a recent rollbar install as well as various little bits around the car have it looking just rag-tag enough for me to consider scrapping it all. If your interior is stripped, can you throw up a pic, especially the rear deck area and the footwells?

Before I painted the panel white.



She doesn't talk back!


I only stripped the back and passenger because of the insanely hot summer we had in Socal this year. I might strip the driver side this spring, still debating because the trannie tunnel gets HOT. If I do, I'll probably put some heat insulation underneath.

I Have been debating about doing this for awhile. The car is my daily so I dont think its a very good idea. But I sure do love the look, and it would easy as hell to clean.

How loud is it with all the interior taken out ?

Tires makes more of a difference then anything else. My sumitomos are NOISY. My friend with a stripped prelude on Hankooks RSs is waaaaay more quiet. I hate my tires. Coincidently, its waaay more bearable with the hardtop off. With it up, it acts like a chamber and amplifies every road imperfection and pebble.

With the top off though, the looks of "WTF" from people driving by in trucks and SUVs are priceless. :)

Stripped interiors FTW!

I don't have pics right now, but my project Miata is being built to fill a dual role in that area. The footwells, seat, rear bulkhead are covered in Rhinoliner material. The parcel shelf is remaining painted. That way I can run the car "fully stripped" without worrying about scuffing things up. However, there is a carpet set that will button in place should I want to go "VIP plush" with the interior.

I'll try to post pics soon.

There was rhino liner paint covering my old miata floor, and it works rather well and doesnt look to bad either

I never even thought about rhinolining, the problem I have now is the paint gets scuffed/chipped easily, even with 4 coats of paint and clear coat. Does the rhino spray on smooth or rough like the bedliners?

pretty sure its rough like a bedliner but durable as hell, and will insulate to a degree, so youre not burning your legs on the tranny tunnel.
