I dug up these pics that i took when i was test fitting the carpet. The white stuff on the console is spraypaint. After I tore out all the ratty old carpet a... Show morend chipped away the tar i thought it would be cool to paint it white. Since i didnt mask it it got on the console and looked funky anyway. I have newish black doorpanels from another 280 im going to put in later and all the plastic for the steering column is sitting in the back of the car.Heres another pic of the rollbar before i got my new seats. The bar fits really close to the roof, which is good.This is the only pic of the engine i have. We took off all the manifolds and covers when we replaced the head gasket. Were so close to being finished but i keep losing bolts and i dont have much time to work.oh yeah this is what the car looked like before i put in carpets Show Less
Heres where i spent most of my summer mornings. I couldnt work on the car so spent my time sanding and polishing my valvecover. After it seems like millions ... Show moreof sheets of 100-300 grit sandpaper i had to hit it with a buffing wheel and then rubbed it out with semi-chrome.
Now for the wheels. They were actually pretty easy, all i had to do was sand the rim smooth and sand any peeling paint. After a good washing i just bought $12 worth of Kragens paint primer (which did both wheels) and painted away.
Heres what they looked like before i did any work, pretty scary
