    We're midstream in putting a new interior in our 1974 Sport and it
    comes down to how much you want to spend. Assuming you don't want an
    illegal automotive job, for about $3000-$4000 you can have an interior
    shop do the whole thing. For about half to 2/3 you can buy the
    interior components from companies like PlanePlastics.com (carpets and
    plastic pieces) or any of the other online and TradeAPlane sources.

    Buying the materials and doing it yourself is the route we took. The
    sidewall panels are not structural and as long as you use aircraft-
    quality materials you can make and install replacements as an owner.
    After 30+ years, we found that the original plastic backing material
    was in fragments (and extremely flammable) and that the cardboard-
    backed pieces sagged or were moldy. The headliner's in good shape and
    the plastic pieces can get away with fiberglass repairs and paint.

    Our new interior sidewalls are vinyl-covered sheetmetal (.025 thick
    2024-T3). Under the facial vinyl are underlying strips of vinyl laid
    to give a textured pattern along the walls. I added a map pocket just
    ahead of the pilot's door and will add a similar one for the Airplane
    Flight Handbook to go ahead of the passenger-side door. The carpet
    was bought by the yard (about $25/yard time 4 yards to have extra)
    from PlanePlastics. Seatbelts were re-webbed to match and we're about
    to start on the seats. Check the BAC archives and you might be
    surprised to see how mauch improvement can be made to cracked and
    broken interior plastic pieces.

    I put a couple of photos on the BAC site.
