Got a chance to get something done! My plan is to put the interior back in the car soon - I think I can have it all in and back together in one or two working days depending on how well I remember everything. Today I finished painting the last few gray pieces that hadn’t need done - armrest plugs, vents, and other odds and ends, but also importantly cleaned the seatbelts and repainted the plastics.

Every year or two I get a chance to work on my car. So, a big hold up for this project has been the paint damage on the rear bumper. Today, after spending Thursday sanding and prepping, I got a chance to repaint it. This Thursday I’ll sand out the orange peel, then Sunday I’ll reinstall and buff it out.

Once that’s done, I’m putting the interior back in it and I’m going to just drive it for a little while before I start sourcing stuff for my Turbo motor swap. It’d be nice to do some mechanical stuff for a while.

Reinstalled without damaging it. Went on a lot easier this time, probably because it’s been on the car a while and learned it’s shape. Just gotta cut and buff it Thursday!
