    Working on rescuing my busted console... someone did not treat it with respect. Nearly all the bottom screw holes that hold it down were broken. I picked up some plastic epoxy from Walmart made by J B Weld. This stuff works great. It dries in about an hour. I used washers to reinforce the bottom screw locations..

    Had to replace some missing plastic pieces around the edge of the storage box on the console. On these early consoles they are a one piece design and molded into the console top so a replacement box is not available. I used the following method to repair. 7F012205-D13A-4F87-AA88-D86086F175C2.jpeg 0F7C2242-FA8F-4AED-841D-A68E666C99D4.jpeg C449EFEC-D719-4C5A-BDA6-21A1845AB290.jpeg 94B75631-FA87-4057-B369-DA672240E063.jpeg B5190883-6A2E-4A35-8D7C-5F21F583ECD1.jpeg 6DB58245-A7E3-467A-B836-7061EB3B42AF.jpeg 713A6F28-71D7-4BE7-9F7D-FAF884B42688.jpeg DE15BC0F-82BB-4B3C-9C45-A33F19FF3AF0.jpeg F6D31701-2F24-4F79-AE6F-1F8C237D1765.jpeg 607A4CB9-CF42-4918-8391-CFE87085B6EE.jpeg

    Finished up the Killmat sound deadening for the interior including the roof. Pulled the filler panel after having to weld tops onto 3 of the screws that were stripped...Got that area sanded and primed. My filler panel is heavily pitted from rust and needs replacing..

    Just finished connecting the flex duct to the vents and I was wondering if you had the same conditions, the far drivers side duct is pretty close to the gas pedal and the far passenger side is a stretch to make it reach. Any additional pics would be great thank you

    Hanging headliner...I used this glue from Lowes. It was recommended by a buddy who owns a trim shop. I used a body filler scraper to tuck the headliner into the front and rear grooves.. tempImageUXTr3n.png tempImageE1I5iB.png tempImageIYfn4u.png tempImagevTipXi.png tempImageHKRAHn.png tempImagelVPYml.png tempImageHfqIej.png tempImagecl6ZVI.png tempImageeXs0sC.png tempImage7e1Ykn.png
