    I got some work done refreshing the old interior panels that were reusable. I haven't gotten to the new pieces yet. And the new carpet came in today!

    I worked on reconditioning more of the interior today. I cleaned and refinished all the duct work, the front grills, headlight and signal bezels, and the tail light housing. I didn't think of showing before and after pics until I got to the last headlight bezel. I'm using a product from the Eastwood Company called "Plastic Resurfacer" and this stuff is awesome! It's not a paint, it actually resurfaces the plastic chemically and brings it back to a nice rich black finish. It's a matte finish and I think the bezels were gloss (maybe someone can confirm that?) so I'm gonna have to see if there's a gloss resurfacer if they were. Everything looks like new again.

    Here's an unfinished bezel next to a refinished one...

    I LIKE. I believe the bezels and such were all a matte finish.

    How can you tell if your engine has been bored without taking it apart? And what ways can you tell if your cam is modified without pulling it out? Any tests you can do with tools?
