So i got the engine all sealed up, no more oil leaks...well, any that are bugging me anyway. I also thought i was having carb issues but turned out to be a rotting fuel line, so i replaced that and now she's running mint. So on to the interior...which is empty. I pulled out the rubber mat the PO had in there, it was pretty gnarly underneath. Cleaned it up and painted it with some rust reformer, threw down some kilamat and some mass backed carpet. Will post when i find some seats to throw in there and get it cut into place. Also threw a black, oem gauges/dash piece in there, and will be covering the rest of the dash in pleated vinyl. soonish. Probably after the body work is done.

Am i missing some dash parts here? Were there plastics that ran under the dash?

Ran out of light, but will post once i get the carpet cut and everything into place.

Also got those windows in! Will probably have to re-install them, i couldn't get them flush since the panel is curved and was afraid to bend the 40 year old bubbles. May just try and find some rubber trim, so they look flush.

It's been a while but i've def got some forward momentum happening. I was able to pull all the old and warping bondo the original owner put in the rain guards and filled it with some 3M self leveling seam sealer. cleaned up some wiring inside, and found these cool little rubber guys to keep my doghouse down.

Also go to cleaning out the cargo area and painting the interior. Going to be moving on to the subfloor this weekend hopefully. I'm still looking for some OEM swivel seats for a 78 in SoCal, if anyone has a lead. I threw some old Porsche seats from the 80's in there, and i'm not digging them, at all, but they're better than what i had.

Finally getting to the interior, stoked. Laid down some kilamat and the subfloor. Just need to bolt her in. I also picked up some rear doors here in San Diego with some sweet pop out windows in them.
