Still haven't gotten that second coat of LG on! :( Oh wel, perhaps this weekend.
Finally got the leak stopped... I expect this to last only a couple years though. By then, I will hopefully have a house and a way to properly chop out the rust and weld in new material... till then, this will hold just fine:
Got my headliner done and installed:
Deleted my pinstripe with an erasing wheel
Got my horn button and Kirban Performance horn ring on the car since I"m not using the Kirban Ring anymore for measurements for my aluminum ring project.
I replaced the switch for my window so now it goes up and down again... yay!
I also mounted a trunk emblem.... with drywall anchors. Works fine, and looks great!
Next up is to de-rust and paint (rustoleum) the floorpan, then put in new carpet padding and my cleaned carpet. I'm going to swap in my leather seats from my '89 after I replace some of the seat belts and after that its mostly trim bits that are left.
Then the engine... it still knocks and I think its a bad timing chain. Dunno... I'm goign to repaint the valve covers so when I do I'm going to drop the oil pan and look for bits of destroyed dampener or for slack in the chain.
A stretched timing chain would explain the rattle I hear, the crappy in town fuel economy (16 in town, 27 highway), and the rough idle. Its got 164k miles though and I would have expected that to have been done by now... but who knows what the previous owners have done or not done to the car considering its condition now.
