Well I put in a little more work on the pickup today
Gotta love weekends.
So I tackled some more of the interior. I had noticed that the kick plates were stained and pretty poor looking to start with and that the package tray below the glove box had some cracking and was discolored badly. After making the new door panels and cleaning up the rest of the interior, they really stood out so since I'm a perfectionist....they had to be restored a little
Here's before....you can see the whitish/faded/stained green kick panel and a little of the package tray decay
And in this one you can see more of the decay in the package tray and now the discoloration on the drivers side kick panel. Stands out pretty bad next to the new door panel huh?
So I pulled them off, did some sanding and surface prep work, made sure I had the proper paint and got to work
Had a spectator in the backyard while I was working so I put a pile of peanuts right by me and he came over and had a snack
And.....the interior back together. 100 times better yet again!
Might just have to pull the dash and refinish that as well
Also, in Ohio you can register plates to a vehicle from the year it was manufactured. We have lots of plates hanging in my garage so I dug through them and found the plates that my Dad had on his car in 1971. A little rough around the edges, but fixable
After a little work....
Not bad for a morning project before I headed out for the day huh?
