hopefully this thread will help keep me motivated to keep working on this thing. basically what happened is that i rebuilt my motor last spring, got all up running, everything was fine.......for a week, then the (junkyard) power seat track i had just thrown in caught the harness on fire, so since most of the interior was out anyway, decided to do a bit of resto before putting it back together. its been a bit slow, i got laid off for a month back in august, and the new job, while much better than the last, doesnt pay as well, and funds have been a bit short to be able to buy parts/supplies. that means using most of what i got and cleaning/painting things over buying new stuff. enough with the chat though, heres what i ended up with when i got the insides torn out: working on the quarter windows a bit, they were in bad, bad shape, and the edges still arent in that great of shape, but this is "better" untill i can afford at least the new lrs clones: trying my hand at refinishing the stock gt tails: all that was done back in august/september while i was off, and its been sitting about like that since then, and i finally started back on it this weekend. pile of interior parts in the basement (can work on em easier here than in the garage): gonna try to save this carpet, any ideas on products to use would be great: was going to take this apart to paint the very yellowed plastic: until i turned it over and saw friggin rivets instead of bolts/screws, so looks like im going to have to mask the thing instead: going to dye the wheel as well, at least the center portion, and probably throw a cover over the actual wheel so it doesnt all rub off: emlem out: and the door panel in disassembly: i got that bottom carpet off too so i can just work on the vinyl portion. the plan is to paint/dye everything back to the stock color since most of its just faded/yellowed, and only really replace the armrest pads and broken stuff. im debating somewhat what color to go with for the "black" sections, since the stock color close to the dark charcoal of my '99 seats, but not exactly. so its either the 99-04 charcoal, the 90-93 black, or the the 97-89 "black" (im leaning towards the 90-93 black so it more matches the shifter cover and hvac/radio stack).
