Took my throttle body off so I could clean it because it was sticking on take-off. I wonder why lol

Finished my center console and installed the switches in it. I bed linered it and wrapped the arm rest in foam backed fabric.

Went from terrible leather wrap to nice looking bed liner. Took me forever to scrape the rubberized coating off.

Did an underbody pressure wash and washed and detailed both exterior and interior. It needs another coat of wax. I also installed my new fog light harness with a relay and pulled a switch that was for a/c out of my brothers old festiva and put that in my center consol.

Haha ya those things run forever. They are automatically totaled if you get into a wreck because of the crumple points though

Nice! Like everyone else said, it's pretty cool to see you take a junky truck and give it a second life. Subbed

That's an awesome project. I'd love to do something like this, just don't have the workspace to do it right now

Really involved! wow.

Great job.

Where did you get the fabric for the headliner. I am really really thinking about changing my starting to sag in places gray to black. Plus it will give me a little something to do in the Spring and I can make it look better than what I did for my sunroof.

Thanks,
-Nigel
