    I thought the older pictures uploaded from long a go !!!!!

    Here's some older pictures ,Hope they post. So I took it to a car show a year ago, and a guy said that the car was repainted... He said they got over spray on the weather stripping. so I looked at the build sheet, and then went out to the garage and looked at the numbers ,and the build sheet was wrong, my car came with pink and black colors...

    The bumpers need to be rechrome,and headlight rings.

    The interior ,I bought jp's seat covers in blue ,and showed a friend how it looks and thinks the color should be changed. Maaco painted the top s of the inside door red, and I don't like that ,and I didn't ask for that. That dash pad I ripped out , and one of the glass over the speedometer is missing the chrome button ,that goes in the center. I can't do anything ,but changed the oil ,because I live at a condo.Can't do anything else for awhile ,as I had the transmission replaced. Mike

    The car was painted at Maaco,It was sonora Beige,and black, It's missing a piece of stainless !

    I finally drove it this past summer,after getting the fuel pump replaced. It had a huge hole in the driver's front fender. Still has a six volt system , the build sheet said the paint code was suppose to be Rancho red and black, so I had them paint it those colors after attending a local zone meet.The turn signals don't work after a few times this summer. Oh well. I try to post a older pictures.
