Unfortunately, it's the stock headliner so it's a crummy paper material. I'm thinking about cutting it in half and wrapping it while it's in place.

Default Update!!!

It's been awhile since I've updated. Things I've completed:

-Bought a raised SS VFN hood on CL for $250
-Picked up a pair of seats for $125
-Cut the inner fenders for weight reduction
-Removed driver side door bar, passenger side is next
-Headlight brackets were broke, so I'm mocking those up to make my own
-Started to remove, unneeded metal brackets from interior ( can I say, drilling out spot welds is a time consuming b***h) lol
-I have the driver side seat installed on sliders and they are bolted directly to the floor with grade 8 bolts, but I think I'm going to weld another metal plate to the floor board for added strength. The thin sheet metal floor pan just doesn't seem like it's enough.
- Port and Polished 317 heads, BTR .660 valve springs, and had the valves replaced.
Here are some pics

Lol, yeah it is. That's not how it's installed now. This is how I bought them. The guy had these flimsey extension on them. I pulled them off and mad brackets to bolt them directly to the floor. Just concerned the floor pan isn't enough.

may want to make some plates or maybe some extra large washers to put under the floor pan so the bolts dont pull through

Thanks, yeah, I literally stopped what I was doing the second I found it, and drove to pick it up. I also, just picked up this undamaged SS spoiler today for a $100 on Facebook market place.



Slowly piecing this thing together. Trying to keep in budget. Lol

It's crazy how one thing can change the whole look of a car. Best upgrade besides the hood.

They're still going for 250-300 around me. I was surprised that this one went for what it did.
