Looks like all she needs is some seatcovers and an aircleaner... :lol:

How extensive a resto are you going to do?

Stick shift GTO's FTW.

She needs a really good cleaning, seat foam (covers are great shape), headliner, carpet (or some dye due to a faded portion), and eventual paint. I will need to check brake system as well. It didn't start when I tried it yesterday. I think it's electical but not sure yet. I may need to call a real mechanic to help me get it going, just not sure yet. That's pretty much it from what I can tell so far but I am sure I will find more things that need attention. Right now I just want to get 'er on the road. Don't know how far I will take the resto. I guess it just depends on time and money.

Speaking of dying carpet has anyone tried it?

Well I just got the trunk open today for the first time by crawling through the back removing the latch and guess where I found the keys to the trunk.....yep in the trunk.
Anyway here is a few more pics:

I dyed the carpet in my Javelin about 20 years ago, from maroon to black. turned out OK, but it was a messy process. Looks like your carpet is already black, you could try the spray can dye that also works on vinyl, I think SMC is the brand. But...for high wear areas like carpet, kick panels, and seats the dye may wear off quickly.
Nice car, and good luck!

Thanks for the kind words guys. As my resto experience and knowledge is non-existent, this is about the only type of fixing I feel I could do. All that welding in new floors and stuff is WAY out of my league.

I bought a can of the spray just to see how it's going to look. The carpet is brand new but has a couple of faded areas from direct sunlight from 1999. Yea the previous owner said it had been about 5 years but I found a reciept in the car for all of these new parts from '99. If it doesn't match I will just buy some new.
