Plus the garage is cold and the lighting bad. I should just swap garage and dining room. My life would be so much easier.

LOL I still use mine on occasion,

Thinking back to the first car I restored, '67 Olds Toronado, FWD, I rebuilt the CV Axle Boots on that table, lot's of newspaper. Those dogs weighed 50 lbs each!

Johnny,

Did you sell the car after you restored it or keep it?

I tried to ask you in a PM but your inbox is full.

My first one I kept for 7 years, the dark blue one I kept for about 5.

I'll check my inbox... Thanks!

The ancient one is/was named Joseph, son of Jacob. Ever heard of him? Thought I'd ask before I send you stuff you already know.

I finally have both door panels done. Well....sans the pockets/bags because I havenít made up my mind on the design.

I also purchased new arm rest but havenít installed those yet.

I got these door panels off of eBay for $40 for the set plus shipping. An absolute steal if you ask me.

Below are the before and after.

I know itís not true to the original design but




Oh and I will replace the screws on the trim with new ones prior to install those are just temporary.
