continued finishing up the engine bay today + got the A/C all back together



and on to the interior ..
Toms inner kick panels were old and cracking (like ALL of them) so I installed ours . These basically "hide" all of the electronics on the inner kick panels , wayyy nicer then the stock ones IMO





a little color , and drying overnignt

so the real only modification you'll need to do if you install our inner kick panels (other then trimming them to fit) .. and if you have A/C , is to extend a wire . Instead of cutting any wires , I just used some OE connectors and made a extension wire .... so now they fit perfect .





also , got the inner fender splash shields on



Toms base model didnt have tilt either , so I added that !!



also cleaned up and painted the headlamp mounts
headlamps were a little "clowdy" , so I polished those and also the stainless trim





and installed

I have had good success with it .. usually lasting a min of 5 years before you see any wear .
like paint .. you have to spend alot of time and expence cleaning and prepping

new LED's in the guage pod



little work on the dash today Smile
also got the speedo done
We're switching out the old speedo for one with a tach , Toms original had a better condition glass then the replacement , so i opt to use that one .



pulled it all apart to clean the 32 year old dust off of the surround and the guages





polished the glass , inside and out







and back together .... and oops , original glass didnt have the trip meter hole , so I had to cut it ..
done and looks much better



also , got the dash in place
