I just realized I don't have any pictures of Polaraco on here.  I also realized, I haven't taken any yet!  *Makes note: Take time off from work and bring the car and camera to a nice place*  It would help if it was COMPLETELY DONE!  (Ahem *Drops subtle hint*)
 
Anyway. . .here's the list of things left to be done.
 
Cosmetic
Sun Visor Clips installed
Front Seat Trims
Chrome Arm rest backs installed
Carpet and trim Trunk
 
Body
Take car back to body shop to repair 3 rust spots blossoming LR 1/4
Repaint header. .  (My Fault)
 
Mechanical
Replace Front Sway bar bushings with better ones.  If that fails, put old sway bar back in.
Send car out to have the drive shaft angle checked for trueness horizonatally.  I just don't have the facilities to see it.  (Scheduled for Monday)
Replace RF rim which is bent.  (In Progress)
Replace window channel (Next weekend hopefully)
Improve LF defroster air flow  (Next weekend hopefully)
 
Future/optional
Work on more power out of the 5.2 or stroke a 5.2 block
 
Drive the damned thing
 
So far, in the last month  I have
 
Finally rewired the area where the two different harnesses meet and installed rear battery.
Replaced the rear carrier
Replaced the 4 Shocks
Installed a new radio with Serius Sat Radio (My wife wanted it)
Rebalanced front tires
adjusted drive shaft pitch and replaced broken trans mount
Adjust T Bar height
Oh there's probably more. . .
 
I'll get pics for you later in the week.

Steve , when you go to have the rust spots fixed idk if its a big deal
just figure I remind you have em look at the brace bars under the hook
where they bolt to the fender , the paint there was starting to chip.

I am doing them as we speak.  I already pulled them back and painted everything and cleared.  In the morning all I have to do is crank the bolts back down.  I consider that done already

It used to have a black vinyl yop.The white is much better.Looks sharp.
I want to thank Steve for letting me drive the car during my visit.
Looks like the LED taillights have some bulbs (board?) out.Bummer.

This is the original car Arlen.  This is probably where you got the green from. . . That was a year and a half ago

no offence Steve. but i kinda prefer the black top. i think the white makes it look too "prestigious". but other than that. I LOVE THE DAMN THING
