Re: 68 GTO HO Convertible Restoration

Started work on stripping of rear interior components and repainting the piping on the rear seat.

Re: 68 GTO HO Convertible Restoration

Bill, The interior pearl is a darn good match as you can see on the headrests. The pearl MUST go on over white as it is more of a translucent coat. It was in a rattle can.

"My seats have a pushbutton on the back for passenger and on the side for driver."

Flambeau, my '69 convert. has the exact same thing. Pushbutton on the back of the passenger and on the side of the driver. I don't know the reason for this other than it must be miss-matched, '69 driver side and '68 passenger.

Amazing that your goat wound up in the same squadron. Are you VT-86, 4? Loved Key West but haven't det'ed there since I was a cone in '91.

Re: 68 GTO HO Convertible Restoration

Mine has a 69+ seat on the passenger side. The previous owner said it was stolen the day before he bought it. So now I need two sets of Pearl rear covers I work T-39's so we handle students from all of the above. :thumbup: Love the keys!
