Well, sold the car – Off to the next project. If you see it around in the south sound area, wave!
Added some additional bling to the car.
Found a nice grille badge, steering wheel badge, and I repainted the 5speed badge on the hatch.
New carpet for the cargo area, refurbished plastics (sanded, re-textured, and painted with SEM color coat) – the plastic was so badly UV damaged that this was the only way to bring them back. I also got some matching vinyl and recovered the wheel arches.
Seats reupholstered with original pattern (but now cloth) seats. They look nice and are comfy
Mocking up the chrome bumpers so I can fabricate some brackets – Looking nice.
Starting to put the interior back together, new carpets, refurbished dashboard, rewebbed seatbelts – it’s looking like a car again:
Most wagons that I have seen have rusty rear license plate bars, here is mine before:
I sent it off to be re chromed by Pauls Chrome on the east cost – I then started masking everything off for the black paint:
Masking removed & final product:
The original plastic trim for the wagon was very faded. So, I painted it gloss black with the SEM product, masked everything up, and shot it silver:
Looks like new, Here they are installed:
