Looking a lot better now.   Installed the carpet, the front seats and the new steering wheel this week. I can actually take it for a spin now.

Probably won't drive it down, but could well be in the trailer to use as our transportation when we are stopped. We are thinking of doing a tour of the south again, and still want to do Route 66 east of Albequerque. For this year I will most likely have it in Ontario for my daughter's wedding, but will be arriving about two days too late for Moparfest.

She is definitely gorgeous (except for the wires hanging around all over the passenger side , hahahaha), and the only thing that looks a little off, knowing the before pictures, is why the one tone door panels? Just thinking the top part being blue would fit rather nicely, but that's just me, still love the new look!

I just had a thought while installing the carpet. Why not run a few wires from under the dash to the trunk before the carpet goes down? I threw in 4 16 guage 2-conductor shielded cables and 3 14 guage for power considerations as I might add a trunk mounted stereo and may change the manual retractable antenna for a power unit. 
The door panels are the 'L' panels in pearl white. What is missing is the aluminum insert at the top centre. I was missing one of the 300 emblems and have left them off for now. Should I ever get a nice set, I will probably put them back on. One advantage of not having the metal trim pieces is that it is not so hot on your arm.

Shows you what I know about the interior packages and such. Still looks very nice, one to be very proud of.

Lea, the wedding is in Cambridge. That is soooooooooooo close for Moparfest. We'll be there for about three weeks, staying in the Campbelville KOA. I'll let you know if I will be bringing it.  She's all packed up to transport to my son's wedding for some pictures.

Awesome pics.
Congrats to the Bride and Groom.
Peter you must be one proud Papa for two reasons-your son and your car.
Cheers!
