I never thought my wood shaver chisel tool that I bought 2 years ago would ever be used again but sure enough, it seems like my most useful tool for this job.
Started peeling back the leather and padding trying to get it all down to bear metal but these pieces were glued to the wheel well humps.
It's pretty tattered but if you read the writing on the bottom, these seat belts were manufactured by "Takata". Thought I'd take a picture.
So this is what it looks like after I called it quits for the day. I was able to vacuum the interior pieces and chips that I scraped off and this is the end result. The more I look at the original color, the more I like it. Mint green.
...and here's a shot of the rear of the car with the back seat out. Again, most of the brown discoloration is NOT RUST. Yaaayyyy!! It's simply a discoloration. There are some trouble spots in small areas here and there but overall, it looks pretty good.
