    I bought new ACC carpet from rockauto.com....new seat covers, sun visors, head liner, door panels, sill plates, and rear package tray, from classic industries, new Coverlay dash cap (which I'm very impressed with), and a new stereo and speakers from a local accessories store. I also re-dyed the lower dash and all the other hard plastic in the interior with SEM landau black.

    how the car looks today. the next step is getting the inner fenders and radiator support media blasted and painted so I can get the fenders on, install my new gas tank with new sending unit, install the drive shaft, then paint and install the hood, trunk lid, and bumpers. I'm also planning on sending the gauges to Gaugemarks to be restored.

    no. and I sold it....I could probably help someone if they wanted to build one. I know the large pieces are 2'x4'x3/4" plywood. double thick. glued and screwed together....the piece under the sub frame mount is a 4x4....the rear has a double 2x6 going across the bumper mounts....and I used a 2x6 sticking up for the car to roll over onto. the front also has a 2x4 going across the firewall and bolts to the fender mounts....the rest is basically just 2x4's mounted wherever I thought it needed more bracing....

    I saved the photo. Knowing the measurments of the 79, I'll be able to figure out the rest, I just wanted an easy way out;)
