Nice Job on both the engine bay and the interior.

Thank you, sirs.

What I'm REALLY excited about is the interior that will be going in once everything else is 100% completed (cosmetically AND mechanically):

That is an extremely rare color, especially in leather, for the '88 - '93 style GP interior. I lucked out and found a GP GT in the yard with it a little while back, completely in tact, and nearly mint! Next luckiest thing to winning the lottery.

Engine bay looks REAL good!

What'd you use to clean it? Power washer?

Actually, I did it in a buddy'* driveway (I live in an apartment complex, so that wouldn't work to good). Regular garden hose, though it had a different head on it with a bunch of settings, so you could get some fairly powerfull streams out of it. I didn't want to do it at a car wash, because I knew I'd be there quite some time, and I wanted to have control over shutting off the water (without the time still counting ). So, I doused the engine in 2 cans of Foaming Engine Brite, waited about 10 minutes, scrubbed the really bad areas with a variety of brushes, and rinsed everything off. Then I went back and scrubbed everything and anything I could within reach in the engine bay, and rinsed, repeating till it was clean. Spent about 2 hours on it. Practically not a spec of grease or dirt left in the engine bay. The only things that don't look clean now are the rusted pieces that will have to be pulled out, sandblasted, and cleaned or chromed.
