Interior

I have a couple questions about improving my interior back to when my car had 0 miles on it. How do I get scratches out of the plastic in the console or side door panels (the map compartment, cd tray, or whatever you want to call it)? How much do stock mats run? How much is a stock 2003 headliner cost and is it a pain to replace including the sunroof cover (2003 because it's better than 2000)?

Paint is a no go. There is no way i'm going to ruin the interior of my car with paint. It may look good on some of the E-Celica rides but I just can't do that to my baby.

I think he meant painting it the original color because you said you wanted to restore it back to the way ya want it. And paint is also all I can think of besides vinyl overlay.

I'm thinking a high grain (smooth) sandpaper can help get some scuffs off the plastic. Just be careful and I think you make make it look at least a little better. Check with toyota about the sun roof cover. I know that it can be replaced with out removing the sunroof itself.
If that works or you figure something out with those scratches, let us know. It might be something good to put in the installs area.
