  Time to really get into gear and start re installing the stuff inside. In this video, or this segment we look into the headliner. This scard me, as I thought the headliner was fragile after 50 some years. As we can see, not so. We move on through this, and it really comes up nice.

Comment:
  The areas that are most bad. Dirt, and more dirt. Plus, we can't let it pull away from the window rubber. Thats what is holding it together around the front and rear windows. Can't scrub too hard there.

Comment:
  remember, it has to come up. I had to secure it as the outside molding, and the name had to come off for painting and buffing up the trim.

  After we deal with the headliner, It's time to clean up the windows from paint overspray.

  We start the inside from the back to the front. We have to fabricate a new insulator behind the back seat rest. This is a devider, and a sound barrier between the trunk and the cab area. We also have to fabricate the wind lace and the post protectors. This went well after all the prep work was done with the wind lace. A messy job.

Comment:
  After making the wind lace. Paint, thinned like water to color the lace. I used the back material from a couch. The back material, backing, is a lined mat, like the lace, but the matting is not as lined.

  Now, to the real fun stuff. On the 5th year of restoring this car, it's time to put the dash back together. Almost everything on the dash. The steering wheel will wait until the front seat is in.

  Well, here we are up to re installing the seats, and carpet, and other goodies waiting 5 years to re install. We are almost ready for a test drive through our little town, but, not yet. Still, some things to do. So, for now, here's what was happening between last day off, and yesterday's day off.

Comment:
  Re installing the seat rails, springs, and slider equaling line. For adjusting your leg length to the controls.

Comment:
  After cutting the carpet, we install the door step sills. The original carpet, was bined around the edge and layed under the doors on the floor. The space between the door step sill and the floor was vinyl glued to the wall between. The replacement carpet is a universal, and if I want the binding, cut to exact, I would need to take the carpet and the car to an upholstery. However, because I do not have good original vinyl, we are bringing the carpet to the door sills. Later on, if I want, I can have the carpet bound. But, I like it better this way.

Comment:
