Interior removal/refitting - Straight forward or not?

On the back of a pervious thread about Leather interior for my 156 as Im currently only got cloth, how simple is removal of the interior of course if it comes out you can work out how it goes back alot easier Hopefully

But basically on a scale of 1 - 10, 1 being changing a light bulb and 10 being removing an engine where does a complete interior strip come in (front, rear seats, full set of door cars)

Im imagining around the 5 mark would that be fair?

Easier than that I'd say, 3.5. Interior change for my GTV took me around 2 hours, being super careful good luck!

On your todd a 4 i would say. Comes out easier than goes back in. Hardest part for me was the fitting back bench and door cards.

Everything else easy even for a novice!

Soooooooooooooo easy, on your own id say a 3.5ish

it took me 10hrs to remove the interior from 2 different cars and fit one set back in again so your looking 3hrs each (roughly) i did also change some dials and do a oil change in that time so work it out yourself

its all simple really nothing too testing, just remember to dissconnect the battery
