Bad Nick! Don't tempt me! :lol:

Here's some more chunky-ness. This is the back driver side seat, where the bottom seat belt attaches to the body. Not a whole lot left there:

The things we've learned since these posts. Working on the 97 LeSabre certainly brought a lot of things to light, as well as developed skills that will be useful when we get back to this car.

The SSEI is next on the project list. Quite an extensive list of things to do on that. Pulled it into the garage this past Saturday. Stay tuned.

I'd nearly forgotten about this thread.

Yes, the SSEi is going in for some major surgery soon. The car is just not in the best of shape right now.

August 3, 2019:

Tear down of the SSEi has started. Didn't get too far into it as other projects and tasks needed completed before this. But, Tim and I got the first look at the car behind the plastic, and it is not pretty.

Both driver and passenger sides are chunky. That's only the back half. Haven't been able to get the front halves off, yet. As the weeks go by, we'll dig more into it, and I'll keep this updated. Based on how long it took for us to do the 1997 LeSabre, if the weather cooperates for a few more months, I'm expecting us to have this finished sometime late spring / early summer 2020. But, I also have a lot more work planned, so we'll see.

I will miss that supercharger whine (actually have been missing it for awhile thanks that loud exhaust), but this is all necessary work and will be worth it by the end.
