Good Day all, I have been busy getting some of the necessary equipment and tools to do most of the Fairlane rebuild project myself , got large shop air compressor, sand blaster, sand baster booth, engine host, engine stand and the best is a 4 post car host .
So far I have the interior remove ( seats, carpet , head liner , door panels, kick panels ) also pulled the exhaust , engine & trans.
Next is to pull all suspension Parts ( going to replace the rear leaf spring & shocks , front coil springs and shocks )
Going to sand blast the interior floor and complete underneath of the car, rear end and all front suspension parts, prime with Eastwood epoxy primer and then a epoxy undercoat ( going to use a heat and sound insulation like Hush mat Ultra on the interior floor , doors , etc )
, going to sand blast ( using walnut shell media ) engine bay and trans and prime and paint, also engine block, valve covers, air breather ( What was the stock color of the engine block ??? )
Going to replace front and rear seals in the engine and trans , do rear axle seals , switching brakes over to power disc brakes ( Master Power Rallye brakes on front , and maybe there Pro Driver rear or Wilwood rears ( would like to have 15" rims and the Pro Drivers don,t work with all 15" rims )
Now to the new interior parts , Looking at Stock Interior Ultra plush cut pile with mass backing with matching floor mats, also there headliner ( going to send them sample pieces of stock carpet, head liner so they can match to there color ( they will send me a sample of there best match ) ( has anyone used there carpet , would like to know if there carpet is molded to replace the small vinyl pieces that were stock that runs along the door floor kick plate ( on the floor vertical piece between door and seat )??? A
Also if there molded carpet replaces the stock vinyl piece that runs from the rear floor vertical kick plate to the rear bench seat ????
Also going to replace the front side kick plates with ones made for speakers, they come in black, also my dash top cover color is very sun faded , will the SEM color paint aerosol can paint from stock interior work for painting these ???
Now for the seat cover , looking at getting this from Mac,s ( bad thing is only may driver seat cover is bad ) and they sell in pr,s , also they have a rear window package tray, will have to make sure there color matches the stock color.
Well that all for now and if anyone has any info to help with any of my ?,s above that would be great.
