My new 1987

Incoming!
I just can't stop myself. Better to beg forgiveness than ask permission I guess. Anyway, 1987 from out west. Rust free.

Nice. Spend the time removing/losing the rest of the tired looking packing crate and you be driving one clean looking Wag.

The day I picked it up from the shipper. The first time I'd seen it. That's dirt - not rust btw.

Making the console. It'll have rear AC, new power ports, accent lights, heated seat controls.

Hey, Dave. How you been? It's been a while. Finally about to use the woodgrain you sold me last year

I can't remember the miles on this one, but I think its around 100,000. Yeah 7-8 eraser wheels is what it usually takes me on a full woodgrain removal. The mask is great because it covers my beard. It's from Harbor Freight and comes with some replacement inserts and ear plugs.

Replaced the broken old interior wood. It took me 4 tries to get it right. The hard part was going over the hump at the door lock. It's a pretty close match to the original and you'd probably never notice, but I'm going to go ahead and replace the other three.

No, that’s an 85 Champagne. The Bronze 84 is at the storage yard waiting on me to get around to restoration. The one in the garage is next. When I find a almond one, that’ll be the one I keep. I’m not flipping them as quick as I used to between work, health issues and the divorce they take me longer than normal. Once the back is finally fixed, I hope to be faster with them.
