Leather power seats from our old Freestyle. Chrome tilt column and gauges in.

I got some exhaust from Speedway. I extended it over the axle so it will have a mellower tone. The 90 degree elbows needed to be tighter so I cut several slits in the radius, pulled it tighter and welded up. I’ve got to remount the brake hose bracket now but no big deal. I bought some 4” stainless tips that I ran out behind the tires.

I’ve been doing a lot of tedious stuff along with some wiring. I attached the steering column wiring, dimmer switch and light switch. I also cleaned up a bunch of wiring. I installed the gauge lighting and added some different LED’s for turn and bright light indicators. I welded up the factory dash knob holes that I wouldn’t be using.

Used Slick Sand for the first time. I’m really impressed with this stuff. It sands really good.

I have never tried Slick Sand but have used the Featherfill G2 a number of times.
When you have older panels with a lot of little issues, the polyester primers are the way to go.

Yeah I was kind of afraid to use it because I had heard horror stories about it being like concrete to sand but that wasn’t the case at all. :goodjob:

Got the doors mostly sand blasted before I ran out of sand. Had some rot to fix. Minor on the driver side but major on the passenger side.

The Speedway wiring kit had a parking light circuit for the front so I popped out the single bucket and installed some dual filament buckets for 1157 bulbs so I can have park and turn.
I also installed and wired up my horn. I had a horn lying around. I think it came from the Freestyle.
