Nice job! I bet you're glad you did that before the interior!
Yeah, it was brutal. My underarms, ribs and upper arms are all bruised up, and barely functional. LOL knees and back hurt too. 1000 rejected staples everywhere! Thanks for the advice!

Test fit door panel, and replaced uJoints. Also stripped the rear seat down to the frame…what a nasty mess!

Just a minor update, did ujoints and alignment…also stripping and refurbishing seat frames in prep for recovering them. Must

Been working on seats, this is passenger side.. it’s not done….
In terms of sharp metal and pain and bleeding, these seats are challenging the inner doors for the top spot.

Well…half way done with recover, then I will tweak the fit. So far so good…and I might as well rant….this is the second transmission pan I got from Summit, both have many deep grooves in the metal mounting area…horrible stamping quality….the whole point of the new pan is to seal the transmission leaks…got a feeling this might be a fail….I do have good Felpro gaskets and gasket sealer….oh , here’s my carpet…waiting on window adjustment and drivers seat removal and noise/heat blockers….
