I didn't get any detailed pics of the interior... but it'* a near-perfect leather tan interior. I'll possibly have interior pics up soon.

I'm thinking about putting the BC decals on the rear quarter windows.. i'm not sure whether that would help the look or not. And if I did get them, I'm not sure whether I should get them in white, silver, or chrome. Anyone have any input? Oh, and other possible future mods: painting the calipers silver, silver "Pontiac" decal on the upper part of the front windshield, silverstar, hella, or GE nighthawk bulbs, and hopefully a paint job because of all of the sun spots... probably in the same green color, too.... but the latter is not in the near future because of cost. (I apologize if this last paragraph would require this topic to be in the Detail and Appearance forum. Please feel free to move it if so.)

Thanks for everything,
Vlad

I think if you started doing a bunch of appearance mods, it would make the spots stand out even more. You may be able to just have a good wet sand/ and re-clearing to the paint in a few places.

How many miles?

yeah, I have to figure out what I'm going to do with those spots... I don't think I trust my level of expertise at this to do it myself... I have to try to find a place that I trust to do it.

The trunk and hood may be cheaper if you find used ones through junkyards, or members here.

Everything else looks pretty good though already
