Momo prototipo wheel? Good taste! Man that's a hell of a job I hope I never have to do...

Found some used Corbeau seats locally in pretty decent condition. Also, started making new door card backers, as the originals were really water damaged. The 302 block is painted and honed; assembly has begun.

Since the previous owner had cut holes in the door cards for additional speakers, I needed a way to cover up the holes. I decided on carpeting the lower section, and think it turned out nice, almost looks like it could have come that way. I also replaced the elastic in the door pocket, as it was sagging pretty bad.

Finished the passenger side door panel too. A couple before and after shots.

Thanks! I’ve finally realized that finding replacement door panels was a losing agenda.
