I'm converting the interior from black to silver with white upholstery. Here's a picture of the dash just sprayed. The color is "88 SAAB 900 Turbo" silver, because I happened to have a quart lying around from a job I never got to. Also is a pic of the dash pad, painted with SEM "super white". I also did all the other interior plastic parts. The steering wheel and column is next to finish the white painting. The dash panels are white as well.

I have the trunk queued up to paint, from where I can assemble the trunk. I ordered Clarks mega kit for all the weather stripping, body bumpers and gaskets, and I have molded carpet (80/20 light gray) and a new headliner (white) standing by.

I'm going to chip away at it in the evenings as I can. All the parts have been restored, and the list of things I need is small and not going to get in the way of progress. Two more pics of the rear interior painted silver. I haven't done the insides of the doors yet, but they're ready to go.

So...uh...Ken. I notice you have a spray booth that is currently vacant...and nearby too! Not so close to me here in Bethesda...but not so far.

You are doing excellent work. It is just paint...but now it is paint on the car!

Kenzen,

Your project takes me back to my recent Rampside project.smileys with beer
At present you have got a lot done and it's looking great. Now comes the fun part of assembling everything on and into that beautiful body shell.thumbs up

Your doing it right and especially getting even a little done when you can. Believe me... those baby steps will get you to the highly gratifying finish.
Just keep making those steps. Again... looking good!
Keep posting your progress. We're lovin it on this end.smileys with beer

My neighbor's '49 Ford pickup is next on the queue, then maybe my S10. And I'm always here to help a fellow corvair neighbor... smiling smiley

Yeah...the fun part is figuring it out how it all goes back together, and making sure I identify parts I need in advance so I'm not stalled out. I've ordered a kit of all the trim screws off of evilbay, and I'm working out the order for all new bulbs. All the stainless steel trim is restored, but I have the aluminum still to do. The car is actually drivable if I put the steering wheel back on, install a seat, and put the battery in. I'm going to paint the trunk tonight, and maybe spray the steering wheel and column. More pics to come...

Went out to work on painting the trunk, and realized all 3 of the wiper motor mounting screws sheered when I removed them years ago. So I drilled out new holes, but unfortunately knocked out the top welded nut in the process. That led to searching and finding a new square nut. So I tapped the remaining two holes (10-24 FYI), and mounted the wiper motor. Then I used the new nut and another screw in the third (top) hole, and JB welded the nut from behind to hold it in place - it won't go anywhere. I'll get to the trunk painting tomorrow, and hopefully paint the steering wheel and column, as well as the sun visors and door armrests, using more SEM "super white". (It's great stuff, BTW.)

Great work! My first repaint was eliminating the faded Willow Green from my Corsa and painting it a beautiful Burgundy

The Silver interior is a beauty!

Might want to test that white dash pad for too much reflection off the inside of the windshield.
Lay it on top of the dash of a vehicle with a windshield in place on a sunny day and you may change your mind and make it a dark graphite.
