Dismantling & Replacing VL interior

Hey i wasnt sure where to post this so i thought this might be the best place.

In about a month im replacing my whole interior to another interior taken from a berlina.

Ive read articles on how to take seats out, which look pretty easy apart from the front seats, but I havent seen any tech articles about the other things such as removing the rooflining, interior 1/4 window sorrounds and an in depth dash article.

Is there anyone who can point me in the right direction of technical articles.. or even give me advice from previous experiences theyve had.
Any information would really help a lot!
Thanks

Like others have said, do one thing at a time and it will all come apart. For the dash start with things like glovebox and air vents, then you will be able to acces the screws for other parts of the dash

I just changed my complete interior to red, and it was a bit of work (took two days) but was well worth it, the rooflining is pretty straight forward, its best if you don't want to keep the old stuff and just rip it out.
The way I put it back in is as follows..
First, put the closest 'roof rail' to the front of the car in so that its supported by something then press the little plastic strip along the front of the rooflining all into the groove around the front window and down the pillars.
After you've done that start tucking it into the front door frames and putting the coloured rubbers on which will hold it in place. And its basically the same for the rest of it.. Put the next roof rails in, tuck in into the coloured rubbers around the back doors etc.. When you come to the very back, really you're supposed to pull the rear screen out and glue it under that rubber, but to save doing that you could just do what I did and use a contact glue adhesive to stick it up at the back, make sure its pulled tight tho and nothing's left hanging down. Should come up well.
Good luck mate
