Interior Restoration on 986 Boxster

I just recently purchased a 1998 Porsche Boxster 986, which has a red interior that I'm not to fond of plus it looks quite worn. I'm looking at replacing the carpet, the door sides and the dashboard lining. Is there a place that specialises in this stuff?

Take a look at the below thread. He can help you out. Here is a photo of a nice interior he has for sale. You don't like red, then maybe green. Me, I only like black interiors.

You may find this list of wrecking yards specializing in Porsches helpful.


Or now I notice maybe you wouldn't, given where you are located. Was there in '01.

Maybe ask on PFA - Porsche Forum Australia

I have Boxster Red in my 99 and I like it, old school but to each his own. Until you find the interior you like you may want to look into a refresh. This past summer I re-dyed by faded rugs and interior pieces and came out good as new for cheap. Just a suggestion. there are a lot of products out there to help renew the interiors of these cars.
