Took it for a ride today as it's nice dry weather. Also changed ac condenser and fixed the kidney grill holder fitment. Oh, and clear indicators all around too.



New condenser in. Next step is new dryer and some more o-rings and then it can be refilled with r134a.

First wash after ceramic coating. It is fun to wash now.
I also installed all new front bumper mouldings so I used 3m dual lock to mount front license plate. Gotta order new plates as current ones are pretty worn.
Edit: it's gonna snow again tomorrow so back to garage...

I think I found front seat that is in good condition, so we can get rid of the broken one.

There is dark grey sport seats for sale at decent price but they are very far away from where I live... And right now I'm thinking it would be more interesting to but money into engine upgrade. So I'm gonna go with those basic seats for now. Going to get the new seat tomorrow, seller also had armrests that need new fabric which I also bought. Gotta take them to upholstery shop to refinish.

These I got to figure out what to do.

Ordered black plastic trim for the trunk that goes behind license plate. It was cheap for original classic part, around 70bucks.

Thanks, I will see upholstery guy tomorrow about arm rest, so lets see if we can find close enough fabric. Maybe I'll ask about the front door panel too, if he got idea to fix that too... Since I have not found replacement yet.

AC refilled and it's cold again. Gotta order new electric fan. Bearings and resistor are bad.
