    I picked up some great parts out of an 89 4cyl that was getting parted out close to my house. Talk about lucky! I picked up the dash, seat belts as well as some other little parts. The dash and seat belts are both in excellent condition for their age.

    My old ones.


    The new ones

      Here's the dash. The dash in my car isn't too bad but this new one is just a little bit better. You can see there are little squares or rectangles patches on this dash. I assume these are from where the PO had the Velcro strips for the dash cover.

        Hey what's up everyone? I can't believe it has been two years since I've posted about my car. Wow. Time flies. In the time since I last posted a lot has happened to my car. How do I begin to get all of this adventure down here? I guess I'll just start throwing things down and see how it lays out.

            So, in taking the interior out I was hoping for something neat like most of you have found. You know something like some spent ammo, sunflower seeds, change, a cigarette butt or two.....something. Literally all I found was a rock. I still have not located a build sheet.

              So here are some pics of my temporary paint booth and painting of the interior parts. I'm showing this mainly because this was a cheap way to paint the interior pieces indoors. With the fan set up the overspray was almost non-existent. The boxes were from 2 garden sheds we had purchased for our side yard. Everything was taped together. It all worked perfectly for the time it was up.

                          07/28/2016 The bumpers were sent out to a separate company for restoration and a prime. I had them leave the holes for the Buddy Bumpers though. I couldn't see any reason to patch the holes when I was going to reinstall the bumpers anyways.

                          The shop made a template for the roof line paint too.
