Nice job though. how did you get the stock trim on those aftermarket seats? are those buttons functional still?
Lol...I actually got the door jambs just after taking those...the lower B pillars are a lost cause, they will be replaced, as the clips at the top are broken.

The seats were a pita to retrofit, but I wanted to retain some of the OEM look, and function.
Its the OEM seat base.
Everything, but the seat back adjustment works. It was impossible to integrate the original vertical arms that connect, and adjust the seat back to the aftermarket seat.

I have had the interior on a slow back burner...I replaced the rear carpet, and rear seats too, but there is so much more to do.

Car slept today and for the next four days. I was in the ER today. Severe stinging pain in my stomach since 3am all day long. Had a catscan and they said it wasn't my appendix, gallbladder or pancreas but it was my stomach which was inflammed and had a bad infection.

Thanks dude. Yea, I'm staying home for the next four days. That means I'll probably spend the $300 on new interior pieces and $50 on black suede

Besides those two items I need to get I just need new engine mounts, replace my thermostat and my RTABs and then a professional detail. Then the car is done.

Thanks Jose

Btw in the lighting section I reply to your post. Some projectors are worth the retrofit compared to OEM

Good to know for future references, I guess you're on antibiotics for a bit?
