    Looks really good! You do need to Q-tip the vents though, other than that, very nice!

    I'd replace those floormats. They look discolored in a way cleaning won't help.

    oh yeah. i was reading up on products and saw the q-tip idea. you can actually see the dust in the vets from the pictures :mamoru:

    What sucks about the floormats is that they are from a 96 Acura, and I'm sure i cant buy OEM floormats from Acura now. :hs:

    Sometimes you can go to a auto parts store and pick some floormats up for a reasonable price but you get what you pay for, some are nice looking
    I can see the dust in the vents but besides that everything look great.
    I like cleaning the vents with a small stiff (square at one end and flat at the other) rubber stick that I rap with a MF sprayed with 303, works great and saves time. My own invention I made

    i think i am just going to go outside and do the q-tip in the vents to finish off.

    i hate "aftermarket" floormats:hsugh:
    They dont look as good, and they arent Acura :hs:
    I guess i am just a freak about keeping most everything stock

    powerwashed my moms floor mats in her 96 lincoln then soaped them up and scrubbed with a heavy bristled brush, then powerwashed to rinse em....but the pressure of the water matted the carpet :ugh:. the matted down parts eventually came out, and the matts looked great. BUT i do know that integra's have different material for the floormats, almost like a tapestry type material

    yeah, im 18 and have bought my first two cars (91 Integra LS, and this 96 Integra LS SE) and the carpeting and the floormats on both of them were the worst parts about the car :hs:

    I got a full set of Honda floormats for my old Accord a few years back. Check with the dealer, they might not be as expensive as you think.

    Nice! Yeah Honda/Acura mats are kind of crappy. I punished mine pretty bad (rochester winters!) so I bought a new set recently for $65 bucks (oem). I'm gonna keep the old ones around to use during the winter though. Definately give your dealer a call as lots of places keep old stock around and will sell them pretty cheap.

    I used a carpet cleaner (a smaller hand held type) and some good carpet-cleaner concentrate. It worked wonders on the carpets and floormats of my car.

    Put a stain remover on the stains before-hand and over-concentrate the mix, and make sure to let it air out afterwords.

    Worth a shot, good luck. Other then that, nice job.

    edit: Damn your floor mats are huge, they actually serve a purpose! :eek3:

    stupid ford...

    anyways cleaning yours shouldnt be hard at all
