How do you make a tired old car look great? Give it some interior love!!! Decided to install new carpets, new seat foams, seat straps and covers, new head rests, sun visors and door panels. My seats were literally falling apart. After every drive there would be a bunch of foam pieces under the seat - it had just dried out with age. Changing the seat straps made a HUGE improvement in the overall seat comfort. I definitely recommend changing straps if you are redoing seat foams. For t...

Different Diff

Posted on: Sunday February 21, 2016

I spent many months buying up all the parts I wanted and needed in order to get the car back on the road. I wanted the car to be fun an reliable. No concerns about the FUN part.........reliable is a completely other thing. I decided that if I was going to do this, I had better take the time and do it right. New engine mounts New battery New electric fuel pump New brake pads and springs New brake lines New brake rotors New brake drums Rebuilt calipers New brake master cylinder Ne...
