I stripped all the vinyl roof cover off the car. I think over time, it did more harm than good. Also removed the chrome pillar vents, labeled and taped the screws to go with them. I always felt it's a good idea to have stuff labeled. I'm not expert enough to simply memorize where things go and throw everything into a box.
I don't know why but I just wanted to Armor-all the back seat to see how it looked. Dreaming while cleaning. Doesn't look too bad though.
That's probably the first time I've seen the dash with no bugs!! Even as a kid, I always remember bugs being there.
Something needs to be done about that rust and those holes. A few of those tail light plastic surrounds need to be replaced also. Some of the plastic is broken and shattered.
After tidying the inside a little bit, I moved on to the engine bay with the shop-vac.
Decided there is no need or a 25 year old battery so I pulled it and decided to paint the battery clamp red just so I know which one is which. I'll probably replace the clamp and those lines anyway.
Took this out of the passenger seat. Also decided to clean the battery tray while I'm at it.
That brake cylinder looks like it's made of stone. I wonder how hard it will be to fix. Might end up replacing the whole thing. Those nuts and bolts don't look to good.
Some loose pieces just floating around engine bay. Decided to shop-vac all that dirt. Basically all hoses are dried crusty. Some even with holes and crumbles when i touched it. I'll see if I can still save the motor though being that it's all I have for now. I'll have put the car on jacks to remove the fuel tank and see how that looks like. That's for a later date.
I still can't find my Haynes Manual. I have no idea where I put it. I did buy one though. I don't want to drop the fuel cell without having it around.
