Hiya Mike... Welcome to the club and Kingston isn't all that far from many of us nuts in the area.
You mention the 97 basically being parts..but don't mention why. Maybe we can help resurrect it. Electrical problem was mentioned.. toss up what it'* doing if that'* not in the other thread.
As for many of the changes you want to make. The trunk should be pretty easy by changing from an ignition setup to a battery setup.
Door panels have been done by Jr's3800 and I think one or two others.
On a newer L67 swap, lemme say.. you live in the right neighborhood
Two have happened in the area.
By the way..there'* a meet in Natick this coming weekend and if you can...we'd be happy to have you attend. Check the meets section for details.
