Rebuilt the heater box, got a new defroster plenum, ducts and hoses. Hafta start my work week tomorrow night and will hope to soon get the underdash surface rust treated and painted, and the cowl treated for prevention of any future rust, then reinstall the heat and defrost parts. Next step is disassembling, cleaning, prepping and painting the dash, column, door panels and interior quarters and reassembling them.

My son wants to go with the Emberglo / Parchment Interior Décor Group, and I can't blame him. It's GoRgEoUs ! It's also e-x-p-e-n-s-i-v-e ! So we will probably do that in stages, beginning with the woodgrain for the dash since we'll have that apart. I think the Dealer air unit under the dash with argent face will look better with the woodgrain on the dash and console than the camera case black would. We can do upholstery then door panels with courtesy lights cut in as we can afford them, and a woodgrain wheel to top it off. I hope to at least have it as a comfortable driver by July 16th. He turns 15, and it will be time to learn to drive in it. --sniffle--
