    New Beginings

    I had a chance to take some more pictures of the tudor today after I finished up by-passing the egr coolant lines. I replaced some other old cracked hoses as well while I was crawling around under the hood. The paint isn't the best, it has white streaks on it, but I might be able to buff it out. The vinyl is in good shape too so I want to find something to clean and then protect it with. I think after a set of brakes up front she'll be ready for inspection. Still combing over the car. I found a trunk popper and a light under the hood today, I find something new every time I look around.

              I was kind of disappointed when I saw that it sold...Because I was going to try to talk Mom into going in half-n-half with me...But then I saw it in your sig, and was relieved. 'Cause that was one helluva sale right there.

              Keep up the progress with it Matt!

                    Nice 2 door, I wish my interior was in that good of shape. The vinyl top is in great shape too. What type of options does it have, it looks like it has the same package that mine 2 door has except the leather interior? I had a front sway bar, 3.27 open rear, all power (except pass seat), same digital clock, trunk popper, and a non-premium sound am/fm tape deck stock?

                    The paint was faded the same way on the trunk of my 2 door, I lightly wet-colorsanded it to get the paint to be one color again. There is 2-3 coats of wax on the trunk so it look like new along with one coat of wax on the rest of the car. You can get the bumpers to shine again if you mix aluminum and chrome polish, it works well if you have a buffer.

                      Actually, I have premium sound and a power passenger seat, just no leather. Its a lot different from my bare bones 91.

                      I'm going to try hitting the paint with a clay bar tomorrow and see what happens, if it doesn't help I can still use it on other cars so its not a loss.

                        Weird that it has a gray top. Use Aerospace 303 on it to protect it after cleaning.

                              Tried some clay bar and wax on the paint today and I think its about hopeless, whatever happened to it is going to take some work to get it off. But I've got the time to mess with it. I also blew apart one of the heater core hoses, ooops.
