  1. Comparisons

    Decided to make a couple of quick comparison pictures between old and new instead of going back and forth or just remembering. Kinda cool.

  2. Floor pan paint

    I painted the floor pans on 8/23. Yet another near-midnight endeavor. I didn’t go all the way to the back with the paint, and just left the original grey there. It won’t be seen, so I wasn’t toooo worried about it since I was in a ...

  3. Floor pan primer

  7. DS toe board

    Next I installed the new driver’s side toe board. I didn’t cut quite as much of the old area out as I did on the passenger’s side. I didn’t want to have to remove the steering column, nor deal with making the correct holes in the ...

  8. Driver’s side destruction

    Okay I haven’t been keeping up to date with this. The next several posts will be on stuff that I did a few weeks ago. I’m back at school now, so the car will hopefully be getting finished when I go home for winter break.

    I ripped out ...

  9. PS rear under seat patch

    Since I cut out the floor above the rear torque box when I removed it, I needed to patch the floor. There’s a reproduction piece for it, but it has a tunnel for the parking brake cable, whereas my car has a flat floor with the cable mounted with ...
