A hole in the driver side floor board. Looks like another repair with aluminum and calk.

I would say approx. 2K with all the few parts that I need. This is not counting my labor.

Well thank you. It has been trying at times.. I swear!! I appreciate the comments. Thats the goal I am after. I wanted to fix everything that I possibly can. I am going to work on the shifter pieces tomorrow on the floor. Reseal it and so on. Finish painting thr visors and try to get the upper portion done.

Why thank you. To answer your question is yes I do. Its SEM vinyl or leather prep spray. Depends on the surface. I scuffed every piece with a kitchen green scouring pad or sand paper. Then I spray with several light coats then allow to sit in the sun as much as possible. The colder days has also slowed my response a bit. Been using a propane heater in the garage.

More progress today. Painted the visors and the center sunroof cover with buttons. I actually them apart to do it right. Taped off the mirrors and trimmed them with an knife. Dyed the carpet using 5 packs of Rit Dye from Walmart. I will allow it soak in for 2-3 days, then rinse, then allow dry again, then repaint with SEM black. To keep the smoothness you have to brush in all directions in between coats.


Rescewed and calked the center shifter housing. Not the prettiest but the calk gun was giving me fits. Once this is dried, I will place Dynomat over al of this area just for more deading.





The headliner Velcro is crap, so I had to redo it again. I used new 3M double Velcro this time:











Visors look like new money, the white you see on them is my dry fingerprints:







The steering wheel was actually grey, so I had to sand, prep, and paint. The outer leather part is with SEM leather paint, and the plastic parts and airbag is with the Landau. This is the reason for the color change:







The center sunroof cover, oops was in the way:





The visors installed and ready to go now:







The carpet before the dye. The black you see is the parts I Painted on top of it:







All dyed up . The white you see is the salt coming through. Once I rinse it will be gone:

What a wreck. Glad I bought a 2000 that only needs a seat repair. Good luck!

Incredible job! Looks great.

Question, I am having a real hard time removing the screws from the rear oh shnapp handles. Any suggestions would really help. I already stripped one screw and couldn't make any of the others budge so I gave up temporarily.
