There is a light at the end of the tunnel!

Dateline - 11/12/2016 - It's hard to believe, but I'm almost done!  I finished both front doors this weekend sans the speakers which need to be painted.  Here are pictures:

Right front door panel installed sans speaker

Front passenger area with door closed

Right door window switch
Left front door panel sans speaker

Driver side with door closed

Drive side dash, steering wheel installed

All I have left is:
  • Paint and install the front speakers
  • The center console shifter boot cover  
  • A little finish work with both glove boxes
  • Install the dash dimmer knob
  • Install the arm rest glove box and arm rest
  • drop in the last of the carpets
  • Install the front wing to body cover panels
  • Tie up a few wires in the fender wells
  • Bleed the brakes
  • Mount the bumpers
  • Paint and install the fender braces
  • Install the hood safety latch
Just odds and ends really!

Still Working on Door Panels

11/05/2016 - What can I say!  Still working on door panels!  Getting close though.  Spent most of the day Saturday wiring the four window switches together and making new window connections.  I did get everything done and all four windows work.  I was also able to install both door panels.  The challenge now is how to mount the arm rest pads and the switches to the actual arm rests.  I think I have an idea, but need to get some brass stock to try it out.

I also worked on he steer column cover.  I'm close on that too, but again, need to get some stock at at the hardware store.

Finally, worked on the center console some.  I mounted the emergency brake lever cover and started working on the shifter cover. 

Honestly, I'm running out of stuff to work on without starting a new batch of work for the back!  It's  a pretty good feeling!  I think I need to take a breather and do a through clean of the garage.  It really needs it!  Time to clean out a lot of the cruft I have laying around and organize a bit better before I start more work on the car.  Seems like a good thing for December!
