Day 01

Alright, so the next day after picking up the car, I decided to clean out the interior. It was jut dirty and gross, from old age and body/prep work that was done to the outside of the car. Enjoy!

Smog7:

I don't really have any major plans for the interior. Pretty much I'll be putting in better front seats (the stock ones are getting torn up and just really freakin' heavy), new steering wheel (you can see in the photos the condition mine is in hah), and i'll be switching my interior lights back to stock (they were red, i'll be putting in stock colors with brighter LEDs). I plan to modify the dash for gauges, i'll be posting pics of that in progress too!

MixMaster:

I just used a rag with hot water and dishwashing soap in a bucket. After that, i used another bucket of hot water and rag to wipe up any soapy residue. Car smells better! :lol: But yeah, nothing fancy was used. I suppose you could use simple green, but i'm not too fond of having my interior smell completely of that.

I haven't done them yet, looking to do them tomorrow actually.

However, I'm pretty sure I didn't double up on anything nor did I miss anything. As I was taking everything apart, I was keeping mental notes in my head.

The 4 spherical bushings are what you need to get the job done for the two trailing arms in the rear (2 on each side). For me, it was those 4 bushings that were the biggest pain in the ass to get off the car and rear knuckle.

Thanks for the comments, I've got a bunch of more parts coming in that'll keep you drooling...even gets me droolin just waiting for them to ship in!

Thanks!

Yeah, like I said, I was "skeptical" on how it would look w/o the moulding, not seeing it in person, but I love it!

Day 02:

Alright, on this day, I worked on cleaning the engine bay. I removed the fenders and hood, put them safely away, and started washing the engine bay with car soap+water, and finished it with some quick wax. Turned out pretty well! You might be able to tell in the pics (or not), but there's some thin spots of clear/paint here and there. It's still impressive from what it used to be, but I should have emphasized just a bit more how much i wanted this to turn out like the exterior. I also told him to leave the PS pump and tie rod holes untouched, as I opted to to put POR15 down in those lower areas. Overall, I like it. Here are some before and after pics, enjoy!

Alright, hopefully I'll be posting more pictures up this weekend. I got all the POR15 finished up on the entire undercarriage, fenderwells, engine bay area on the bottom, and inside the rear quarter panel area...I think that should about cover things!

I'm still waiting on a few parts to come in before I can get everything on my motor together...it's always the little things that puts me behind.

I guess now, I should be putting all the exterior back together...I'm still messing around with that suspension arm. I may look into some chromoly option that Simba mentioned in another thread...would be nice!

Day 03:

Here are the pictures of the front fender wells and lower part of the engine bay and rad support with POR15 slapped on. Again, there are some before and after pics. The before pics show the areas all cleaned up and ready to go. I'm pretty satisfied with it...and yes, this stuff won't come off your skin!

Also coated the inside of the bumper-chassis mount.

Here's a little preview of the rest of the undercarriage that I had to clean off (pics of that to come this weekend). That tunnel is pretty gross...
