That's how it sits for now.  I've changed the tire and cleaned the interior since the pics were taken. It's propped up on jackstands so I can fix the gas tank when I get home.

It looks like the paint might just buff out very nicely.

Here in a few weeks I'll have the first post updated with a checklist of what my plans are, and what look I'm going to be going for as well. Gives me more time to practice with the photoediting program I use to paint cars with for iRacing.

Aside from the head-liner, and visors that interior looks very nice.  The after-market cruise control is very interesting.

yeah, this is maybe the second car that I've owned that has had Cruise Control, I'm not sure how it is supposed to look on a normal M- because my Lebaron and Dip SE didn't have it.


The interior has seen better days.  The seats and carpet look pretty good, however the A-pillars are toast.


The dash endcap might need to be replaced eventually, as it's starting to peel away near the glove box.




Anyways, the first post has been updated with "The To-Do List", color coded for easy reference.

Thank ya, I've been dabbling with graphic design stuff for the past year and a half. Eventually I'll make a post with the paintschemes I've been doing in iRacing.
