How long did that take you start to finish? How happy are you with the results?
Quite happy so far although it's still offgassing 3 weeks after I did it. Hoping that stops soon.
How long to do it--it was MLK weekend, so
Saturday was ignoring it and going bar-hopping down the Keys instead (we got as far as Marathon).
Sunday was probably a solid 6 hours of taking out the inside hardware/washing/sanding/cleaning with acetone (I don't want anything to do with MEK) and taping.
Monday was 2 hours to do the first coat, took a 2 hr break, another hour to do the second coat. Stuff was pretty thick for that second coat. Then I pulled the tape and left it alone until the following weekend, I took the Metro to work instead.
Following Saturday I put it back together. Maybe 2 hours of labor. I had a couple of bolts that were semi-stripped, so I had to go to Ace to get replacements. The passenger seat belt was semi-retracted and took some gentle convincing to get back enough slack, but I was patient after reading around on here about dealing with that.
I noticed a slight squeak this week and located it to the drivers seat, I hadn't tightened the bolts properly. That took maybe 5m to rectify.
