How much does something like this cost, and where do you purchase it? Is it jsut regular material from a craft shop?

Also, what kind of adhesive would you use to put some in a 92 Blazer?

tweed can be pricey. generally about 12 to 15 a linear yard. 1 yard by 58 inches i think....

go to a fabric store, they'll have it. also the adhesive you can pick up at Autozone even... look for Carpet, Headliner, and Fabric spray adhesive.

Practice practice practice! Or pay someone else (*cough* me *cough*) to do it cuz tweed is expensive to screw up a piece :(

i just did half my front interior this weekend... even fabbed bowties in the kick panels. ;)

let me know if you need anything else

I was wondering almost

the same thing today. I dont want to use tweed though, maybe a goofy print of some kind. Hey kalgor, how well does it stay in place? You dont have real cold temp extremes down in AZ, but it was about 19 degrees here today. Is that gonna hold up? It also gets about 110 sometimes in the summer too.:drinkhaha :bash:

I am planning on doing a a sand tweed interior. I wass thinking of getting the tweed from http://www.roddoors.com. The material looks like good quality but is a bit more money. $28 a yard.

Good Luck!!

Fiend Out!

If I use regular cloth, cotton or whatever, how bad would it fade? I was thinking about jsut getting some material. It will be cheaper, and better if I mess up cause I wont go broke buying another yard. BLA

I bought my tweed from www.selectproducts.com Select will drop the price if you buy in quantity. I’ve used up 6 yards so far and I’ll need 4 more to do the seats.
3M brand (Super 77) works well and may be found at most any auto parts or Lowes and Home Depot.

selectproducts.com works if no local shop carries tweed.

autozone is an auto parts chain here. checker and car quest the like. its a spray adhesive designed for fabric to auto part stuff for reupholstery of interiors, but 3m 77 is good $hit too ;)

IF you plan on tweeding the common stuff in your truck like dash console and stuff like that you'll need around 3 yards of tweed...its easy to do and anyone can do it

Try these places. Stay away from Select products.
www.autoheadliner.com (last i checked they didnt have all thier colors up. Call them if you need to they can get ANY color you want)
http://shop.store.yahoo.com/yourautotrim-store/ (also good)

Also try your local phone book for upolstry and upolstry supply shops.

3M 77 or 88 or whatever is good. For big areas like door panels and so forth I started using Weldwood contact cement. Its made for materials like leather and stuff, just dont apply it directly to the material. When you use the 3M stuff, spray it on the tweed and let it tack up about 5-10 minutes then start from the center and work your way out (especially if your doing 3D designs).

Try this, pretty good how-to for tweed. http://www.minitruckinweb.com/tech08_1.shtml

tweed is for newbies. vinal looks alot better in my opinion. but it does require alot more skill to apply corectly rather than tweed. but it's all in the look your going for.
