collard greens 2002

Got some peg board for the front doors. Time to remount the top door trim and then lay down the leather. Not sure if I'm going to use finish screws to mount or use the plastic clips. Truth be told, don't want to use the snap in clips because they have the potential to break & it's less holes to drill into the board.

Be warn the front is way more difficult than the rear. With a lot more area to cover its tough getting the spray down and the leather on the card in one shot. I think it came out ok for my first. Not knowing how hard it would be, Laid down some sound proof on the back too. I can't imagine how much of a pain the dash is

It feels like I hit a road block, and things have stalled, waiting on parts to come in like the new fuel pump and sending unit. It has really put everything in slow mo... With the wiring being possible the easiest thing to do it's kinda the hardest! C101 connector also came in but I don't want to use any of the old wiring, it just looks to be in bad shape.

Well the old M10 is out, waiting on the side is the M42... Everything came out with ease, I wish all car were this easy to work on. Just like clayW said this is the best way and quite frankly the easiest way to do the swap even if you have an engine hoist!!!

Thanks to Erik the seller, the car came with a pretty good line up of after market parts. Fender flares, front bumper, ansa exhaust, momo steering wheel and shift knob, Just to name a few. But now the hard part comes with finishing were he left off. First thing was to get my hands on an engine & trans, which I did
