Oh not opposed to it at all.  Resto mod for the most part.  I'm to po' and too busy to do a factory restoration.
 
BTW how's the weather back home?  I hear tales of snow today.

I second the Dynamat or even the hardware store equivalent to it.
Who's gonna see it?? it still works as a sound deadener,IMO.

Got the rear seat area out.  I wonder if it's worth it to remove the vapor barrier from the panels and dig around back there.  The white sealer is still sticky.  I've noticed allot of what I thought was oil around the areas of the seal sealer.  Thought it was very odd until I realized it's tar.  Gunna pull the rest of the interior this weekend. 
 
I was thinking of por'ing the entire inside but there's so little rust, if any it's surface, I have to question the value of doing that.  I'd love to be in the position to say the interior is done, for the most part and just work on the mechanicals and body work. 
 
Where does one find the cording for the edge of the door opening?

That oil you see is the oil leaching out of the adhesive for the vapor barrier.
 
I suggest you do check to make sure the drains are open.  You can, if you want, dump some used oil in there so the dog legs won't ever rust.  MAKE SURE YOU PULL THE PLUGS OUT OF THE REAR QUARTERS AND FLUSH ALL THAT SAND AND DIRT Out from behind the rear wheels. (Sorry bout the caps.  Damned laptops)  Once that has dried, you can oil the crap out of that too.

Yup that's how it is..  I'm going to find out if WY or MT weather has the same attributes sometime in the next few years.  I just can't take it here for the long term.

A good auto upholstery shop should have that cording, they call it "windlace" I believe.

WHoooooHooooo wheels are in!
 
 
 

 
 
 
Just kidding.  They're recent take offs from my Magnum.  I needed a wheel to measure some backspacing and just how large I could go as I had a line on some nice steelies here but I think they'll be a tad wider than I'm comfortable. So I'm going to go with a 15x8 steel wheel.  So if any of you have a pair you'd like to unoad give me a shout. 
 
Thanks,
Bill

Got it just in time.You can see where the dutchman panel and quarter meet the water was running on that line and started to rust.
Make sure you clean out the old seam sealer in that joint and apply fresh seam sealer to ensure moisture stays out.
Good work!!
BTW,was the Sherriff painted once before??

As far as we are aware, no this is the factory paint.  There is only three layers I've encountered so far, I assume primer, sealer, and top coat.  On two spots on the car there are repairs so they have non factory paint.   But the rest should be mother mopar.  I thought the red would be the sealer and the grey the primer but to me it looks like the primer was applied over the sealer if that was the case.


 
Why do the A/C vents got to the rear A/C vents in the package tray and the dutchman panel?  Seems to be a very inefficient way to cool/heat the rear passengers.
