    Here's some firewall porn. I stripped the entire firewall of all the factory seam sealer and reapplied new and improved urethane seam sealer....

    Then painted with satin black....to achieve that OE under-hood look.

    Pictures of my AC delete box from Eckler's. The fitment is not too shabby. Still have to go back and touch up some places around the mounting holes I drilled.

    New brake booster. Painted it satin black as well. Simple(er) task with the front clip missing...

    Finally getting some color on it. In the beginning, I was shooting for Silver. Glad I chose black instead. This is Astral Black (blue mixed in for depth) in the Sikkens paint system by BASF.

    Passenger side qtr panel that was replaced. Couldn't have asked for a better finish...

    So here's some more pictures of this long, drawn out restoration. When I disassembled the bumpers, I sandblasted the steel support bumpers and coated them with VHT epoxy chassis paint. Figured it'd be a good tough protection under the urethane.

    Some hood work. I had bought an aftermarket hood but ultimately wasn't pleased with the construction and quality. So we decided to just correct whatever flaws in the original hood as it's made with better steel...and it's not flimsy.
