MUST I remove interior?

Working on my 41...got the color, gonna block and spray soon. I was going to have the interior re done the same way, but in a black or camel color. Looks like the funds aren't gonna let me. I don't have much experience with interior refinishing. I'm a bit nervous to remove headliner and trim.

Can I paint without removing interior? (headliner, trim)
Would anyone recommend me trying to do my own interior?
How much should what I'm wanting cost me?

Thanks for your help fellas....I love this site.

I have no experience with headliners, But have recovered seats and dyed trim. A beginner can do it. keys are taking your time, and following directions.

Can you paint the car without taking out the interior? Yes, but it would be a good idea to take the door panels and kick panels off. It would be a lot easier if the interior was out. Can a beginner do an interior? Yes, but it will usually look like a beginner did it, it will take a lot longer, and it will cost more in raw materials because you'll make mistakes and have to re-do some things. How much will it cost? You didn't really say what material you want to use or show the seats. Naturally, the fancier you want it the more it will cost. Should you do it yourself? Have you got an industrial sewing machine, or access to one? If not you'll have a tough time doing seat covers and the headliner the way it is done now. If this is a truck, it would be a lot easier than doing an entire car.

Thanks Dan..
Door panels are already off. Seat is easy to pull out as well. It's the dang headliner and trim that spooks me. I want to re cover in a good faux vinyl. I already have a complete finished interior. It just looks dingy, and I'm going to paint. So I'm thinking must I remove all to get to jams and such.
I don't have access to sewing machine. I was thinking of maybe buying one. Plus cost of material. Maybe just better to hire it out to a pro...

To do the best paint job, you really should take everything out. You'll be happy you did. If you don't have a sewing machine, that's a big investment to do one seat and a headliner.
