Yeah the rims will help and a stock silver inteior with standard seats will really make it come back to stock in appearance. I am going to have a new bonnet made also which will improve the overall looks.
Heather's subframe came off and got blasted and painted I am waiting on suspension to arrive then set it in place and the 454 will go in then. Once I have it back at the shop I will get a thread on it going. We have 4 builds going I am so F'ing "car poor" as Heather calls it it is not funny!
Ok is daylight LOL bright as poo out but ya will get the idea here are a bunch ole pics of the Rims and one of the new bonnet color + the floors ready for soundener!
Having some lug nut issues so have to get a set as the standard acron lugs are not squeezing into the tunnels.
LOL can ya'll tell what Pete spend his Sunday doing? This video shows how to install a foil style sound deadener carpet insulation into the cabin floor of your Fbody. We will be offering this material on our site in 2 - 4 pack rolls and you can do this at home prior to setting in a new carpet. It is a great way to reduce cabin heat from your engine bay and pipes. It also provides a great noise barrier to the cabin as it can be applied not only to the floors but the cabin walls under the panels and trim.
We hope you enjoy the video and this inspires you to do some of the interior restoration of your car at home!
While we have been in California I have put Yancey at the helm of finishing out the car. He has a 2 page list of items to get going and is plowing head first right through them! Here are some pictures:
He recovered the front and rear seats
All the rest of the trim which can be reused is out and ready for redye to SEM Warm Gray
Trunk Seal is back in:
Being this was a 1981 computer car the computer was removed and Yancey went through the wiring harness and replaced the worn out circut board etc.
