Progress continues on the Grabber Lime 429 Build. Got the package tray completed along with the sail panels and rear seat moldings. Interesting how much time it take to get everything to fit back together afterwards. Cleaned the original upholstery for the rear seats, installed all the seatbelts, including the shoulder harnesses. Had to take down the roof molding over the doors to get the chrome clips in (forgot to to put those in first). Thought there was only one chrome clip on each side, but I looked at one of my original cars and they had two on each side. If anyone knows which is correct (one or two per side, let me know). Carpet cut and sill plates installed. Next up is the center console, the front seats. One dilemma I have is whether or not to add new upholstery or leave the original. I thought I wanted the original in there, but with everything else new, the rear seat (even though it is cleaned) looks a little dull compared to everything else. Anyone have any advice on this nut/bolt restoration. I will be driving this car.
