Back in the game with my new 89 Waggy

I restored my last one in 2009. Sold it to start my business. Now, 7 years later, I've sold my business and back in the Grand Wagoneer game.

Found this 1989 GW from Arizona with 64,xxx original miles on her. Talked to the owner, saw a couple of pics, sent a check and 3 days later it's in my parking lot at work.

It took me about 6 months to finally get around to working on her.

Here's the pics I bought her off of:

This weekend I got the center armrest console completed except for the cover plate. Finished up the overhead console. Installed the front area headliner.

Now I've got rear air and two additional power outlets.

How u get air to it?

Separate or piped in?

Seems it would fit into dash if you did some cutting in front and tied it into vents.

Looks,like it belongs other than that.

It's ducted in from under the vents.

It looks great. That's a lot of work!
Any chance you remember where and what the matching burgundy paint came from? I'm trying to get as close as I can with not much luck. Thanks.
