Well I tried the whole Google+ thing with Picasa and tried Photobucket but my phone seems to be retarded... So ill give it q shot when i get home on the PC.

As far as progress goes I started painting body parts and restoring plastic pieces like the headlight reflectors and yellow signal covers on the bumper. Fenders, headlights, bumper, grill, lip and trunk are painted...

The dashboard can bu dyed or painted.  I think I have an extra black dashmat.

Paint it satin black or get it flocked cause that would look sick

Pics don't get uploaded here.... Upload them to photobucket or picasa, and just insert the link in your post.

Efrain doesnt like that... I got in trouble for it.

??? which part?

Thanks to ZERO! I'm gonna have to figure that out. LOL but ya pics added to first page first post.

Satin black is going to be the cars color for inside and out. But what is flocked?

A flocked dash almost looks like suede. You put a glue down on the entire dash, then use air to shoot little tiny pieces of fabric at it.

Here is an example:

LOL it did feel like Xmas when i drove it home with no problems... But seriously can I flock the dash as home or do I need special tools for it? ( and no i don't have a compressor )

You would need a compressor. Also a sprayer to apply it with. Vitaly does it at Ace Up.

Do you know how much Vitaly charges by any chance?  I got some interior pieces that need something done.  This might be my answer.

      "wait, am I the Asian?!"
"yeah bro.  Yeah, I think so."
      "I'm white!"
"visually, yes.  But so is Takumi Fujiwara."

Yes....  You are an expert

He has a post on az240 with prices. I messaged him a while back about getting my dash done but never heard back. Maybe he's busy or maybe he doesn't like me :P

So progress is super slow but found a way to mount my 93 acura integra special edition leather seats in. They feel great. Way better from the seats that were in and didnt even bolt in...

If anyone can explain how to up load pics with details I would...
