Car was stripped down,inside and ou, repaired as needed. Used POR-15 on water channels body & doors. Seam sealed. New front and rear rubber glass seals. Shot car with etching primer, then reassembled. I did not do a whole lot of cleaning to the under side mainly from front floor board's back.Very clean.
The car has great lines and spacing ( ATTENTION ) the only non working item is the reverse light switch at the shifter (reverse lights are new) its a $50.00 switch and I did remove the heater box and the dealer after market under dash air unit.pump,pulleys,hoses ect, The shoulder belts and hooks are with car just not installed.I was going to install a newer style of heat and air. Those parts will come with car.
