Here she is cleaned up. I spent a long, long time fixing all of the tiny little issues.
New headliner, a couple of spots of body work, mediocre seals, plugs, wires, distributor, tires, sensors and sending units, ignition coil and module, interior repairs like curling vinyl on the console...
At this point it was (to this date) the most reliable car I've ever had. Daily driver until just a couple of years ago when I tore it down to do the first phase of my restoration. Everything mechanical is in great condition and NO rust in the midwest!
I also added a daytime running lights module. I think I was one of the first to test it. Still works great 10+ years later. It's amazing what clean, proper work can do.
First thing's first. Prevent any further damage. That A pillar had to be repaired the right way. Then I painted my brakes while I was doing the pads.
Door hinges were shot. Hanging the doors with new hinges, sans skins....
While the doors are off, I replaced the window motors. This was a REAL pain, but worth it!
I also put in NOS dew wipes. Jeeze, what would that cost these days... $700?
And I had to splurge on some Italian wheels so I can have shiny rimz like all the cool kids.
more photos to come of the bodywork...
