Thank you, I been getting lots of positive attention wherever I go

Becase it was 105F today I decided to remove the original headliner and asbestos isulation from 2/3 of the car (back for now). Cleaned off everything, stripped off adhesive residue, applied dynamat and dynaliner. Will be doing the trunk and front part of headliner soon.

headliner cut out and most of the deadener was loose already.


advesive removed


dynamat - for sound


dynaliner - for heat



INB4 - does it make a difference - yes. I did the same thing on my 245 and when it's 100F outside I can close the windows and just have ambient air coming through the vents and be comfortable. This cuts out a lot of radiant heat

That's a good thing to do. And the headliner will still fit over the insulation.

If push comes to shove, fill a styrofoam cooler with ice, stick a small 12 v powered fan in the lid and have your poor man's AC.

Even just the tar backed foil flashing I used in the wagon made a huge difference (on a TB budget, not a baller budget). Lower temps, lower NVH.

It's the black paper that's glued all over Amazons and P1800's. I have heard both: Asbestos and no Asbestos. I just replace it because it's usually disgusting and peeling off.

Last year was 66 for Amazons, I imagine its the same for 1800s. I alos found that 1x1 of stock 240 deadener weighs more then stock 1x1 of dynamat stuff


Small update. Been super busy with other projects.
Got myself a Recaro seat bracket but only for the passenger side. I did install it on the driver seat but Im on the lookout for a second one. Because I'm tall and this made the seat much more comfortable.

Also got a headliner and windlace waiting to be installed


before


after




whats the little "spin" knob do on the bracket? - NOT the reclining one

Google voltage divider. You should be able to do it with a couple resistors

I'd try one of these in a little plastic box: https://www.mpja.com/LM2596-Step-Dow...info/30148+PS/

It should stay cool, and only use a little extra power beyond what the clock needs. Test it first -- these all come from China and to save every penny, they're never tested so sometimes a bad one, or bad batch, gets through.

I got around to installing headliner and windlace. Not that hard just takes time. I need to go back and take out more of the wrinkles and do a better job on the C pillar.


first you have to remove all the brackets to get the old headliner and windlace out


quick rub with steelwool on the hangers to get the crud off. Makes them easy to slide into headliner


start from the back and work your way toward the front




when its hung you start to tuck it in starting with the rear window and then front



tucked in around back window


then you work from center outward in both directions

I tucked in the headliner in first then the windlace. I heard the job is much easier when it hot outside but this wasnt too bad and I didnt feel like waiting. I need to go back and take out a couple of wrinkles but Im done for today, sore finger tips

Looks real good Jack! I’m sure the Dynaliner will help with noise as well as temperature from outside as well. Certainly looks like a jobs that would make for sore finger tips...lol. Worth it!

It really does! But you also access that space from the trunk, so no worries if you didn't do it.

Looks good, I've always been tempted to do it myself.

You're gonna scrape those things everywhere you go!

What all is left to do on this thing ? Seems like you've gone through the entire car by now.

almost everything else is cosmetic
- paint
- interior
- replace suspension bushings with poly
- powdercoat almost everything that I can
- rear doors need to be rebuild- gaskets, panels, dynamat
- need to add another muffler
- repair small rust hole in A pillar
- probably replace driver fender
- need to finish rebuilding the front piece (actually start) going for the mid model look. I should be able to make two out of what I have (one late one mid)
- wire in clock *love*
- m41 clunks in reverse so I need to swap that one with a good one then rebuild it


thinking of
high compression B23 (60k miles) with a ported 530 head and DOCE 45s (I have all these parts just sitting)
I might just do that after I fix the 220 since i hear the gas mileage sucks on those and I drive this thing all the time. I put about 1500+ miles per month on it


I need to find a bulb cover? that will make the light look green to match. Im going to post detailed photos of how this thing actually works. Clock was almost prefect, just needed some cleaning... coming soon


second one is going on this car, needs the bottom section (front of radiator bottom) to be replaced
