Started the body work, have to take 200k worth of western Pa. out of it. Got to give it credit tho it's in pretty good shape considering all. Chevy would be in the scrap yard by now. Also putting new front hub & bearing in drivers side & Pa inspection. Taking pics as I go & someday I'll get them all posted. 96 SC400 Blue Indigo Pearl.

Default Refinished Wood Panels

Had my wood panels refinished... I had my paint shop paint these black and clear them. Tried to have a wood craftsman do the work but he stated that since it gets so hot in the car normal wood finishes would break down over time and recommended an automotive exterior clearcoat. So here they are..they look awesome now.

So did you get them painted black by a paint shop, or get them re clear coated with the interior car clear coat stuff?

I had them wrapped in CF before this and yes..that looked good so this will look even better..I am doing a two tone interior.. in the process of changing all of the poop brown parts to black and keeping the tan parts as is. I am waiting for my upholstery shop to finish my other parts. I already have other black parts in there and have new black parts at home..

Pic of interior before i took all apart.

Those black trim pieces look great. I want to start on the interior 2 tone swap also but feel like if the stance is stock it would be doing things backwards lol... I'll just watch for yours and learn first.

It's pretty easy to check the plugs on the SC400, not sure about the 300 though. For me I just remove engine cover, then the engine plate, and you have your spark plug wires exposed. Pull one wire off its plug carefully, get a flashlight and inspect the look of the plug. Get a better look by sticking a socket in there and pulling it out. If it looks old and dirty change them. If they look clean and your car's running good leave it alone for a while. My car was running great, but after doing a complete seafoam it's recommended to replace plug, and I had the new wires already so it was a no brainer. I had complete history for my vehicle and never saw that work done, so I wanted to do it. The car was running perfect before and after the seafoam so the plugs and wires probably could have gone another 20K imo maybe longer.

ummm you know, truthfully, if you hadn't asked that, I would have never realized the shading. I figured that was a shadow being cast on it. Though a weird shadow lol. I personally don't like it. I guess it doesn't really fit in or make any sense to have that section of the top red lens shaded? Know what I'm saying? Even unshaded, the only thing I don't like is the amber turn signal under the clear lens on the bottom. If that was painted red, or filmed, I think that would look nice. I don't think I've ever seen that though.

Fair enough. Thanks for the input.

I really like how the 97-01 tails have that separate inner section, I guess I was trying to emulate that. I wish they weren't so pricey.

Dropped my sputtering car off at the shop

4/8 Cylinders running, glowing red cats, smoke from engine, it was a bad day!

Lets get my car done in time for school, c'mon!
