I'm Back - 1987 Waggy - Lots of Pics

It's been awhile since I've been active here.

Long story short, bought this rust free GW from Vernon, TX around 3 years ago. Went into the hospital the day it arrived, and have been down every since, not really been able to do anything on it. Finally, this spring, about a year after my last surgery, I felt good enough to start working on it. It's name is Vern and it's going to be nice when I'm done, hopefully before Christmas this year.

Pics from when I bought it:

Went to change out the tailgate window switch on the dash, and realized the previous owner had broken the tabs off the backside of the headlight switch. Ended up replacing the whole dash insert.

While I had the tailgate apart fixing the window switch, thought I'd go ahead and polish up the tailgate.

Binding the carpet edges for the cargo area carpet.


Installed. The driver side panel is the original. I just put in in to see how it's going to look. I'll be making new panels and putting new carpet on them.

Thanks. So good to be back at it.

That's Home Depot carpet. Was the closest I could find for color and pile to match the original.

I used the synthetic serge binding from Instabind. Heard good things about it. The toughest part is working it around corners.
