After Jay picked up his SC, he finally dropped it off for me to do the interior for him. I have been piecing together parts for a bit now. He really liked the way mine turned out with the SEM black landau, so it was a go. I took several pictures of the problems, mistakes, etc, that I found along the way. I didn't spend too much time on how to remove interior pieces, due to that subject has been covered like a million times. He wanted it to look fresh, and up to date to match his motor and tranny swap when it is showed. That was his whole goal. I will be relocating a few things, and upgrading his stereo components as I go, and fully dynomatting everything. His V160 gearbox and fuel pump is insanely too loud for me, so I will try and quiten things down a bit. He gave me permission to do a thread so without further despair, here goes. I will update the thread as it goes....

Need black seat belts with buckles, door switches covers, seat slide plastic pieces, antenna, and the visors in black. This will be done in about 3-4 weeks if all goes well. I am awaiting some other pieces to come in, and my paint that I ordered to arrive this afternoon.
Thanks for the compliments fella's. I will have a lot of work done today if all goes well. This rain really sucks and puts a damper on things. Tired of it. I haven't drove my SC in over a week due to the weather. I cleaned and prepped a few more pieces and are ready for paint. I have ordered the oem steering wheel with airbag, should be here this week, and will pick the speaker cloth this week also. Once the dynomat comes in, I will clean everything and start putting things back together. Updates will be done as they come. I think I will install 6x9 in rear and 6 1/2 in the front by Polk Audio.
Cleaned the rear pieces with their handles:
Man, these were dirty:
Arm rest came out great:
This new piece cleaned up nice. I have to install the blue LED bulb and she will be set. NO more silly holes.
Also all the lights, except for needles will be replaced with LED's. The climate control will be sent off and redone to Lextech. I have to order a new LCD screen, this one is wore.
Sorry to jump around, but I will post as more progress becomes a word of mouth.
Looking good so far! Im interested to see whats going to happen with some of the cracked plastic pieces. Hopefully you decide to fix them and just replace them so i can see how you did it. a few of my pieces are in need of some tlc.
