I got the glass put in last night...didn't get any pics today, busy with work. Afterwards I got the old broken alarm system pulled out, then did some plastic welding on the lower dash cover, which has never been right, but now sits perfectly in place. Sounds trivial, but I'm jumping up and down inside about it...always bothered me. Rear tie bars might go in tomorrow!

And I can't wait to show off!

Today I wrapped up a few things...got the wheels off and undercoated the rear wells with U-POL Raptor Liner...great product for any do-it-yourselfer for this or truck bedliners....



While that was curing I cleaned the insides of my wheels where the old axles (now replaced) were throwing grease all over them, then road-force balanced the wheels and rotated....





Got the rear portion of the new tie bars installed, then performed a 4-wheel alignment....





I also spent a couple hours last night cleaning carpets, floor mats, driver seat belt...still more detailing and polishing to do before NALM. Still need to paint wiper arms, windshield trim, and one more lower door trim. Bumpers won't get the final paint until after the meet, so they will stay a cut-in mix for now.

New fender liners went in tonight, and painted the last trim piece, as well as the wiper arms...hope it doesn't rain in the morning...drove it home wiperless. I only found one backglass moulding new...I start the search for the other half in the morning.

Precisely what I needed! Thanks for saving me some time...so busy right now I just didn't have time to sit down and scour the internet/forums to figure out which one worked....found it on amazon for less than $19 shipped. Thanks again!

I think this is sig worthy.

Also, that was an absolutely amazing paint job. I need to paint mine, but I've just been waiting on an excuse to do it. I wasn't sure how two tone would look, but that's beautiful.

By far, one of the best DIY builds to date. Now you got me wanting to fix some dents and bumps that terrible, rude as hell GA drivers ran into my car and left her bruised and molested. Thanks for the motivation now...B-)
