Our 1962 or 1963 VW Karmann Ghia Coupe Tweed Interior Kit Includes:

  • Front & Rear Set of Tweed Seat Upholstery
  • Front & Rear Set of Door Panels
  • Front & Rear Carpet Kit
  • Headliner
  • Hogring Kit
  • Installation DVD

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!



Seat Upholstery

The kit includes the seat upholstery to re-upholster and recover both the front bucket seats and the rear seat.

  • Tweed fabric upholstery on the seats and door panels
  • Your choice of color
  • Heat seamed pleats for an original look, despite not being an original material
  • Installs using hogrings, just like the originals
  • Tweed products ARE NOT WARRANTIED! The edges and seams on woven materials are susceptible to fraying over time

Door Panels

  • Kit includes front and rear door panels on both the driver and passenger sides
  • Door panel color will match the seat upholstery color
  • Available with our without pockets
  • Masonite backing for superior durability
  • High quality tweed fabric
  • The clips and seals required to install the door panels are sold separately. We recommend replacing them if you haven't replaced them recently

Pockets vs. No Pockets

  • The cars originally came with a pocket in the door panel on the front, driver's side panel
  • The pocket it essentially an elastic pouch
  • If you actually store stuff in the pocket, the elastic will wear out, stretch, and be droopy in a couple of years
  • If you like the look of the pocket, order them with the pocket
  • If you don't like the look of the pocket, don't get the pocket
  • Just know, if you get the pockets and you use the pocket, it will wear out and look sloppy in a couple of years

Carpet

  • This kit includes both the the front carpet kit and the rear carpet kit, up to the back seat and behind the rear seat
  • We recommend black, charcoal, or oatmeal loop carpet
  • The loop carpet in the colors above is better than the "standard" 80/20 nylon loop, automotive carpet
  • The three colors above have a tighter loop, "smile" less when going over the center hump, and are more durable than the other colors
  • We HIGHLY recommend loop carpet, that is what we put in all of our own vehicle. If you are adamant about getting cutpile, please call us for a custom order
  • Premium carpet is available as an upgrade (See below)
  • You will need to purchase carpet adhesive locally to glue the carpet down.

What is Premium Carpet?

The premium carpet upgrade comes with pre-cut grommets for the shifter, e-brake boot, and a pad on the tunnel, right next to the accelerator pedal.

  • The carpet installs with no cutting required
  • The pad next to the accelerator pedal limits wear on one of the heaviest wearing spots on the carpet
  • Faster and easier installation

Footrest or No Footrest

VW Beetle's came with an optional, sloped footrest on the passenger side.

  • If you have a footrest and you want to keep the footrest, order the carpet with the footrest.
  • If you don't have a footrest and you want a footrest, you will need to source one from a junkyard as they are not produced
  • If you don't have the vehicle close and you are unsure whether or not you have a footrest, order the carpet without the footrest. If you have one, you can always remove it and sell it to someone who wants one and doesn't have one

Headliner

  • Our Karmann Ghia headliners are original style and offer complete factory coverage, including pieces to cover the door posts
  • The DVD we include will show you how to install it
  • Watch the entire installation process before attempting to install
  • You will need to purchase glue separately and we recommend Weldwood® Landau Top & Trim Contact Cement from DAP®
  • Installing the headliner will require you to remove all of the windows
  • We recommend installing new window seals when installing a new headliner
  • The headliner is the hardest part of the interior installation

Interior Restoration Video

We include an interior restoration video with the interior kit

  • Yes, the video is old
  • But, so is your car
  • Neither the cars nor the headliners have changed so the installation principles are still correct

Hogring Kit

We include a hogring kit and pliers with the video. The hogrings are used to attach the seat upholstery to the seat frames. We also use it to attach burlap to the seat frames.

Other Things We Recommend

For Installing This Kit (In the Additional Options Section Above)

  • Seat Pad Kit - If you are replacing your seat upholstery, replace the seat pads at the same time. The seat pads are made from injection molded foam, are designed to fit the seat upholstery, and an improvement over the original horsehair padding.
  • 6 Yards of Burlap - When installing the seat upholstery, we like to cover the springs with a layer of burlap, to help prevent a broken spring from going through the foam and ripping your upholstery. It's kind of like an cheap insurance plan for your new seat upholstery
  • Glue (We Don't Offer) - For headliner and carpet installation. We recommend Weldwood® Landau Top & Trim Contact Cement from DAP®, but we do not sell it due to shipping carrier restrictions.
  • Sound Deadening - Since the carpet will be replaced, now is the time to add sound deadening to the floors.
  • Door Panel Clips & Seals - When installing the new door panels, replace the clips and seals if you haven't done it recently. It just makes life easier

Other Things You Should Think About

  • Sunvisors - Since you are replacing your old, worn out headliner, add a pair of sunvisors in the matching color.
  • Sunvisor Clips - If you are replacing the sunvisors, replace the clips too
  • New Window Rubber - If you haven't recently replaced your window seals, you will need to remove the windows for the headliner installation. If you haven't recently replaced your window seals, this is a great time to do it
  • E-Brake Boot - It needs to come out when installing the carpet
  • Seat Belts - Safety first and if you are re-doing your interior, you don't want old, faded, dirty seat belts.
  • Speaker Kick Panels - If you plan on installing a stereo, we recommend adding kick panel speakers and you will want to install them before installing the front carpet
  • Speaker Wire - If you are running speaker wire or amplifier wiring, run your wires before you install your carpet

Seat Upholstery Installation:

We always recommend replacing your existing seat padding and burlap/sisel to achieve the most complete and professional results.

Seat Upholstery
Our Seat Upholstery is manufactured with only the finest material and is made to original factory patterns.

Foam Seat Padding
Our Volkswagen Seat Pad kits include pre-formed injection molded high density rubber foam that is designed to fill out your seat properly and last for years.

Spray Glue
Spray a thin layer between foam and burlap to prevent pad slipping.

Hogrings
Hogrings are industrial strength staples used to secure burlap (and rear upholstery) to seat frames.

Burlap (Spring Cover)
Works as a protective barrier. Keeps wire frames from penetrating Seat Foam Pads.

Existing Seat Frame
Must use your existing seat frames (can be re-built). New seat frames are not available.
