Here's some work I've done in the last couple years.

I did a new head liner but still need the visors done. I don't think I got the headliner dark enough?




I found this, medium beechwood, got some on the way.


I put in a CD player and reglued the rubber edges of the upholstery.

The engine was built by Rich at the LV Fiero club.
It's bored .030 over and stroked with a Chevy S10 crank shaft. So it's a 3.1L and it is noticeable.
I have a 4T60 to put in it eventually.


I also have some 1.6 rockers to put in it from a 1994 Pontiac Grand Am.

Thanks guys. I have to redo it though, I just noticed TFS has new visors and they do say all 87s and 88s were either dark grey or dark saddle for the headliners. I'll have to get some visors too I guess.

Also here's my thread from when I restored the fuel tank.

I have a new fuel sending unit to be installed still. I've been amassing parts.

If you want to see expensive, try buying that in our Crapifornia "VOC compliant" formula. That's why I try the best I can to buy HOK from a private vendor out of state.
