Product Description

Our 1973 Standard Beetle Sedan Deluxe Smooth Vinyl VW Interior Kit combines the best interior components to restore your air-cooled Volkswagen. The kit includes the following: Smooth vinyl seat upholstery, matching Smooth vinyl door panels (with or without pockets), a full covereage vinyl headliner (available in easy/conversion or OEM styles, for hardtop or sunroofs), front and rear carpet kits, our Interior Restoration Video and Hogring Kit. Just make your selections in the drop down menus to customize your interior kit.

Our Interior Kits include components for the stock US import model year listed. If your car has different year seats than what is shown, please give us a call so we can determine which seats, or other parts may have been changed. If you want a color or material other than what is available above (but is listed in our color samples), please give us a call!

For decades, the interior restoration kits first introduced by California Pacific JBugs have been the best value for restoring the interior of your car. We include matching seat upholstery and door panels, a headliner, front and rear carpet kits, a hogring kit and our Interior Restoration DVD. We make it easy for you to restore your daily driver or show car with interiors that are guaranteed to fit right. Even novices have installed beautiful looking interiors with our kits.



Attention, please note! We no longer offer Headliner Glue!

Due to tightening restrictions from the EPA and shipping companies, we no longer offer headliner glue.

For installing vinyl headliners, we recommend a contact adhesive that is specifically designed for vinyl to metal contact. The best glue we've found is Weldwood® Landau Top & Trim Contact Cement from DAP®. There is no better glue for vinyl to metal contact, especially in hot climates where the interior of a car can be well over the exterior tempurature. For cloth headliners (like velour, tweed and mohair) a general automotive fabric spray adhesive will work well.

Smooth Vinyl Seat Upholstery & Door Panels: VW Seat Upholstery & Door Panel Materials

Colors Available: Smooth Vinyl
NOTE: *** Off-White is NOT a true white. It has a beige/gray tint to it.
This is the way Volkswagen originally made it, and the same exact way TMI has reproduced it.

NOTE: Color samples are close approximations. Actual colors may display differently depending on your monitor's settings. We remind you we will be happy to send out color swatches of any materials we sell to help you color-match your interior before you place an order for special-order interior items.

Smooth Vinyl


Smooth vinyl material was originally used by VW as early as 1956 and used all the way through 1979 models. It is called "Smooth" vinyl material that has a grain to simulate leather. We offer Black, Brown, Tan, Beige, Off White, Grey, Red, Blue, Bright White, Charcoal, Cream White, Dark Green, Chalk White, Saddle or Bright Red vinyl seat upholstery and door panels that have factory styled heat impressions for an original look.

Front & Rear Seat Upholstery


All of our seat upholstery is made with the finest quality materials, completely finished (no sewing required), and has extruded vinyl piping and padded heat-seams. Our Interior Kit includes front & rear upholstery with Basketweave Vinyl seating/backrest surfaces and matching Smooth Vinyl sides and back. You can buy with confidence knowing the seat upholstery is covered by a limited lifetime warranty against manufacturer defects.

Need Seat padding?
Seat padding is NOT included with kit, it must be purchased separately. Do not forget our replacement padding kit and burlap (click here to purchase separately) to achieve professional results. We will not sell that messy “horsehair” (actually coconut husk) fiber pads (that still require a layer of foam be installed on top of them) for padding. We know the horsehair was original for early VW's, but feel that high density foam is a superior product and there is a reason why "horse hair" is NOT used in cars today.

TMI Piping

Seat Pad Foam.

Front & Rear Door Panels

Our Door Panel sets includes both front door panels and matching rear quarter panels. Our panels are made with a thick masonite wood backing and are pre-drilled for window crank, door release mechanism and door panel clips. Extremely rigid and durable, Masonite lasts much longer than cardboard, which can easily bend when dampened by rain or snow. The material is lightly padded and feature stock style heat impressions. Our Door Panels look great and will easily outlast the cheap boards others sell with cardboard backing. A Limited Lifetime Warranty ensures your door panels will fit better, look newer longer and hold their quality for years.

Note: Choose Door Panels with or w/out pockets.

Need Clips and Seals?

You may need to replace your existing door panel clips and seals when installing new door panels. Clips and Seals are NOT included with kit, you may reuse both as long as they are in good condition.


Clips and Seals are NOT included with kit but can be purchased separately.



Select your Carpet Kit.
Choose from Standard or Premium and with or without passenger side footrest.
VW Loop Carpets

Colors Available:Carpet Samples
NOTE: Color samples are close approximations. Actual colors may display differently depending on your monitor's settings. We remind you we will be happy to send out color swatches of any materials we sell to help you coordinate your interior before you place an order for special-order interior items.

Nylon Loop Automotive Carpet


Our carpet kits are made 1/4" tall, 250KPSI (knots per square inch) nylon threads for a full looking carpet that has great wear and stain resistance and the loop carpet features a FLW (fiber lock weave) Backing to hold the threads in place. "Loop" carpet is named as such as the yarns are looped up and down through the backing. Our interior kits are offered with Black, Brown, Blue, Charcoal, Red, Saddle, Maroon or Oatmeal carpet.

Front & Rear Interior Carpet Kits


Our carpet kits cover the complete interior compartment (up to back seat) and behind the rear seat. They are made of high quality automotive grade carpet and feature a rubber backing. All carpet kits are yarn bound (which is much more durable than cloth or vinyl binding) and are designed to withstand years of use and continue looking great.



Note: Choose from Quality Standard or Super Premium. The 5 piece rear carpet is included with either selection.

 Standard & Premium Carpet Kits

The Super Premium Carpet kit includes heater grommets, a driver side footpad and scuff pad on the tunnel, as well as vinyl edged inserts for the gear shift, and hand brake boot. The fitment is the same for either carpet kit, the pre-cut Premium carpet kit is much easier to install with the key openings cut and trimmed.

Note: Choose with or without footrest.

It is important to note if your car has a footrest underneath the front passenger carpet. The footrest is a removable metal slope that originally mounted at the very front of the passenger side firewall. After 4 or more decades, cars that originally came with a footrest may have had it removed for some reason or another.



Select your Headliner.
Choose OEM or Conversion style, hardtop or sunroof, then select your color choice from perforated or crush grain vinyl.

Colors Available:Headliner Vinyl
NOTE: *** Off-White is NOT a true white. It has a beige/gray tint to it.
This is the way Volkswagen originally made it, and the same exact way it has been reproduced.

NOTE: *** Chalk White IS a true white. It is as white as a sheet of paper.

NOTE: Color samples are close approximations. Actual colors may display differently depending on your monitor settings. We remind you we will be happy to send out color swatches of any materials we sell to help you coordinate your interior before you place an order for special-order interior items.

Headliner Vinyl Materials


Vinyl Headliners were original to VW models starting in 1963 typically. We offer both Perforated Vinyl (small perforated holes) in Off White, Black, Grey, Tan or Chalk White, and Crush Grain Vinyl in Off White, Black, or Chalk White.

Easy/Conversion or OEM style Headliner


Easy Install Headliners are typically in stock. They are called “easy” as they are conversion style headliners and use less pieces to cover the same area as the OEM. Unless you are familiar with upholstery work we recommend selecting the Conversion Style Headliner. We cover the installation of the easy/conversion style headliner in our included video.

Original Style Headliners are typically made to order. The OEM headliners use multiple pieces to cover the roof, rear window and quarter windows and are more difficult to install. Our advice is that if you are choosing an OEM headliner and aren't familiar with the installation, buy another spare one. That way once you have messed up and learned trying to install the first headliner, you don't have to wait for a replacement. Again, unless you are familiar with installing an OEM headliner, or you want to learn and are willing to buy another headliner, we recommend selecting the conversion style headliner.

Either Headliner offers complete factory coverage, including coordinating wind lace pieces that cover the door posts. The headliners use anti-microbial treated thread to resist rot and mildew. Remember you will need to remove your rear and quarter windows (and the windshield in 1968 and later models) so make sure you have new window seals when installing a new headliner.

Headliner Styles

The Interior Kit also Includes:

INSTRUCTIONAL DVD

interior restoration dvdNow that you have picked out a kit, our video will show you how to install it "just like the pros". Our 2 hour and 15 minute interior video gives you detailed instruction on how to remove all of your interior components and install your headliner, restore and install seat upholstery, door panels, carpet, and interior accessories, all with professional results. Plus you can always check our YouTube channel for more tips and tricks. We’re adding videos there regularly!


HOGRING KIT

hogring kit Hogrings can be used for various upholstery tasks during installation. The included kit includes enough rings for one typical interior installation. Hogrings are used to attach Burlap to the seat frame. This process keeps the springs from tearing into your seat foam and is how VW attached the spring liner to the seat frames and occasionally how they hold the upholstery to the seat frame.
