OEM parts 101...

are all year interior parts compatible?
That is correct. Only noticeable difference through the years have been changes in the leather-surface (perforated on later model's steering-wheel, seat-cushions, door-inserts), color of the driver's instrument-cluster background (dark-bluish on later models), center-armrest/storage bin (went from single-opening w/ emblem to double-opening & no emblem), shift-knobs, and perhaps other minute details.

Additional sources of spare OEM parts are...

First off, welcome!!!

Where are you from, or better yet, where is the car? That might make it easier to find a good body shop.

My chioce;
D-Vation Auto Design almost completely re-fabed my car, interior and exterior. The interior was done with the SOS CF kit, custom suede accents and new leather on the seats (and a few other parts), and a carbon fiber looking leather accenting the seats.

Charlie Aguirre owns it. He only took two months, which included a complete repaint (also had some body work removing dents and removing the door key holes), new keyless entry alarm, new interior, lowering springs, wheels, and some custom fabricated parts like metal protective grills, a engine hatch (cover) with plexi glass and suede that matches the interior on the engine hatch and molded the front spoiler (lip) to the rest of the front end to give it a much cleaner look. He is creating "D-Vation NSX" as a division that is specializing in only NSX's. He did an amazing job on my car in a very short time frame, given all the work he did.

Here are a few pics of my car now. It was, I'd say about a 6/10 before

You can find them here. If you decide to give them a try, let Charlie know that you are a NSX Prime Member.

I'd say let Charlie take a look at it. He is really trying to make a name for himself in this community and will give you his best price for your support. If not, he knows of two totalled NSX's that he can probably get the interior from.

Wow, that looks like a painful task at hand. Good luck resurrecting that. I'm sure with some $$$ and some patience, you will be able to piece it back together.

Btw, where are you located? And where did you purchase your car?

Good luck,

Wow. That looks like you'll need a whole new interior. Get with Ravi over at umbrella (listed above) and he can help you with getting a whole new interior.

512-317-0392 is Charlie's cell. He has a guy, John, that has over 20 years experience with interiors. Tell him Luis sent you.

You know, since you have to re-do it, you can also consider hving a new dash done in fiber glass (custom), padded, and covered in new leather. There are some pics of a guy who did that on the photo gallery thread.

Holy [email protected] That wasn't just a little fire, the interior is gutted. You are looking at spending at least $7,500 for the parts if you can find good used one's.

Just drive it around as is. It's perfect for Halloween.:biggrin:

Seriously, though, I'm glad to see you bring this one back. It certainly is a golden opportunity to totally re-do exactly the way you want it. Can't wait to see before/after shots.

A race/sport interior might be cheaper (will look nicer just love Type-S and R interiors)

Good luck with your project!

Grats on the car, good luck with the work, and welcome to Prime. :smile:

Couple people said it already that getting a custom job might be cheaper than going OEM. So long as the car runs well, interior shouldn't be much of a hassle.

WOW, it looks like you really lucked out although the parts you mentioned missing are still pretty expensive pieces unless you know someone who is willing to let them go for a whole lot less then what they cost new.
