Read my newbie post before this one.

Pulled out seats, belts, carpets, and windlace. Had the seats repaired with new cloth and some vinyl.
Bought new ACC carpet and matching mats, new package tray (added 2-4" speakers).
Pulled engine, completely disassembled, took it to my local machine shop for hot tanking and hardened exhaust valve seats.
Pressure washed engine compartment.
Gutted all 4 doors: Cleaned and lubed window regulators and latches, detailed strikers, touch up painted door edges and top edges (next to glass), 3 step cleaning of door panels, made new dust shields (glued them on-no tape for me), painted arm rest bases (silver), installed new window fuzzies, and adjusted everything.
Took radiator out for inspection and paint.
Picked up engine parts from machine shop ($125=hot tank, $40=hardened seats, $120=install seats).

Stay tuned-more to come!
This will be my daily driver.

Not only will you have a fantastic daily driver Mike, but you'll never have to worry about losing that beauty in a parking lot! :D
