What did the original builder do to that interior????? Looks like the mice piddled all over it.

Good luck on this. I'll be watching. Anything will be an improvment. You can save it.

A bare plastic firewall??? Really???

Dont worry about the thumb print.... paint it rust and call it battle damage

 Like that interior color. looks like a snickers bar. (my favorite) I've got about 35 of those barn finds that family and friends get for me at yard sales. Do you have any tried and true paint removing ideas you'd like to share? And glue joints?

 Thanks

Let the body soak in purple power for about a week brushed on paint usually comes off faster 

as far as glue try to sand lightly after body is stripped 

Thanks for lookin

I admire this GP project .

    Releaing old Glue Joints  ;

     As I found in SA , I use the Freezer method of breaking old glue joints . Get the items frozen . I place in Gallon Bags the entire project until it is completely undone . Remove and Gently pry apart all joined parts . Repete until all bonds are broken . It is the best way I've used to date .   Thanx ..

you noticed the charger seats they look similar to the pontiac seats 

i have a set of charger magnum wheels that i use for pontiac rallies the actual pontiac rallies just never look good 

the wheels on the car were just mismatched good tires though
