Fixing The More Difficult Fir Tree’s

By admin No comments

As I was reassembling my door panels today after doing the window felt fix, I wanted to tackle another project. The fir trees in my door trim ‘pillar’ piece that runs up the rear of the drivers side door from the door panel to the head liner had worn out fir trees. Whenever the upper […]

Window Felt Replacement

By admin No comments

Been busy lately and haven’t had much time to work on the car. Have a feeling that a lot will be getting done in the next few months, though. First up, something that has been on hold for a while. I have been waiting on replacing my window felt with the Ford Probe crossover part […]

Dynamat placement on parcel shelf/back wall

By admin No comments

I have wanted to replace the old foam under the parcel shelf carpet for some time now. The middle section that goes over the fiberglass has cracked and been flaking off the rubber top, and the foam has a bad odor to it. When the car sits closed for a while it definitely is noticeable. […]

Just of note, I didn’t fully follow the instructions to the letter that came along with Leatherique. It says to leave the car in the sun for several hours to get the interior nice and hot, or use a blowdryer. My goal was to leave it in the garage as in the Florida sun the […]

When I went and replaced the front speakers, for some reason the front drivers side still had no sound until I spliced the […]

Some interior work finished, more started

Today I also finished piecing back together the kneepads and steering wheel cover that I removed when cleaning/adding LEDs to the binnacle of the DeLorean. I had stripped a bolt and fixed it which is why it was not finished with the original work. But, the big task accomplished was the removal of the center […]

Steering wheel pad gets second chance at life

By admin No comments

Thanks to DeCobra for describing how to go about doing this in this thread. As mentioned in the above thread, I picked up a nice piece of vinyl from JoAnn Fabrics (not sure how nationwide they are) but I am sure any arts & crafts store would sell the same stuff. The sell two types, […]

A/C panel realignment

By admin No comments

Ever since I have picked up the car, the sticker on the A/C panel was crooked. I had tried previously to heat it up and shift it to no avail. Today I ran it under hot water and then peeled it back and reseated it. Looks good now!
