I finally got the new headliner done.. Not without issue either..

Since this is the 3rd time doing this, I wanted to try something new. The soda can weight method works for a lot of the contours but not all of them. So, I figured, why not spend 20 bucks on Plaster of Paris and make molds.

It took me so long to strip the OEM fabric that my wife actually offered to help me. Complete PITA.

I actually screwed up when I went to lay the suede down. There wasn't enough slack in between the front dome light bulge and the back of the sunroof. I cut open the sunroof hole to try and fix it but it ended up creasing the fabric beyond repair. I used an iron to separate the fabric but the board required some repair. The new suede came in over the past week so I went for round 2 with this attempt.

I decided I was going to glue down the fabric in sections, starting with the dome light first, just taking my time to avoid creases. It worked out pretty good.

Hopefully this is the last time for this.

Beautiful, definitely impressed by anyone who can do a nice headliner after I did mine (not nicely, btw). Going to do the headliner on my mom's Saturn soon, thanks for the plaster of paris tip! Looks well worth it!!

I'm not sure why the first couple times I did the headliner went without a hitch, but I had much less of an issue then. What's funny is my wife's Jag needs the headliner redone and she keeps telling me she doesn't notice or not to worry about it.. I think It's because she saw how much of a PITA it was do to on my recent attempts.

This car has been on the back burner more or less because I'm not sure how much motorcycle seat time I'll get once my wife and I have kids. It's one thing if I get banged up pretty good when it's her and I but another when there's a kid to take care of. I've focused most of my attention to bikes recently and between that plus traveling, not much gets done with the Bonnie. I know for sure this is a forever car so I'll get to it. It'll just take a while.

Since I posted last, I removed the windshield to paint under the top reveal molding (haven't done that yet) and the headliner went in. A new carpet is also in but I still have to trim it up and install all the moldings.

When I was driving the car before the RPMs seemed to want to drop too fast when I was out of gear. It was to the point where it would almost stall. I know there's a table for throttle air follower in TunerCATs but I wanted to be certain I don't have any vacuum leaks. So, I made a DIY smoke tester out of an old paint can, some fittings, air hose and a 5lb pressure regulator. Turns out one of my injectors wasn't seated properly and the back of the throttle body wasn't making a good seal with the UIM gasket ring. I removed all the 14 year old JB Weld and redid the back of the L67 TB to make a better mating surface. The injector in question sealed up with just some cleaning of the bung and lubing the O-rings. With that out of the way whenever I tune this thing next, I'll know that changing the throttle follower table isn't a band-aid.

I finally got around to trimming the carpet, cutting new door seal spacers to make up for them shrinking and installing most of what's left of the interior. The only pieces left are the passenger foot well carpet trim and the seat rail trim pieces. I know I have that trim piece somewhere but looked for it for a few hours with no luck. I did find an undamaged grab handle I needed and organized what I have for spare interior parts. Not everything is in good shape but I have a hard time throwing out things I know I could make work if I have to.

I know I have more stashed around somewhere but at least now I have a place to put it.

And sorry.. if you see something you need, unless it's HUD related, it's not for sale. I plan on using these spares to maintain the car as long as humanly possible.
