well had my 95 for almost a yr now and i have have done alot maintenace wise to it. noticed my carpet was gettin wet though i didnt smell antifreeze and realized my windshield is leaking. been meaning to get on the inside and do some serious cleaning and updateing so i figured this was the time to tackle it. removed the carpet today. Glass company is coming fri to install new winshield....gonna get EVERYTHING cleaned up and some things repainted....scored a set of super nice clean seats,seat belts and carpet from JYfor $50. im gonna change color of interior from blue to gray. the dash and rest of interior im gonna use sems paint to change the color of dash and rest of interior. here are some starting pics.

My 93 Splash had blue interior. I thought it looked against the white exterior. But looking at your's it blue on blue. Not too sure how that would look, leaning toward the gray. Good luck with the clean-up.

I bet you could find the grey dash and other interior parts real cheap just by looking for some explorer part cars on CL. Most people don't sell those parts so you may be able to get a really good deal on them.

Yeah they had the dash and complete int. It was just money I don't have right now...and it would be cheaper just to paint the rest of it....I may go back and get the cluster bezel and lower dr.side dash panel though and I need some new window handle cranks.

Should look great josh! You can also try dying your old carpet black, a lot of people do it on older import cars. They get a trash can, fill it with water, add some RIT dye fabric dye, and then let the carpet soak in it for a few days and it usually comes out looking like a new black carpet. I can find some more info for you if you'd like
