had to do a REDO on what was a nice set of MM paddle shifters, that came with the car.

gouged metal, drops of resin, chipped paint, gray primer over spray 888o

Sand, base & clear
That works!

With the steering column out.... some rust and jagged edges to clean up.  Will use rubber edging to protect the instrument cluster wiring.

Prepped the rust and used po15

Also cleaned and prepped the floor and any cuts to the body that had rust on the drivers side.

Time for a cocktail!

The existing sebring column rear mount was rubbing on the brake booster lever an had to be cut out.

Time sure does fly a MM post back in 2009 on the sebring column.

To attach the end of the fiero steering column to the Sebring column, used a tight fitting bushing to go over the splines. Then cut two slits in the fiero column end, the bushing and welded all three together.

ZZP fuel logs and injectors installed.  I really like them over the oem fuel rail.

Arruat shipped the REDO on the front spindles and rear caliper brackets today.  Hopefully they are correct this time.

Just little bit of time for cold air intake work

PO used a dryer duck with a couple of fittings riveted to each end.  K&N #F033C8 filter was used. 

Since sheet metal was used to fill the stretch a hole was cut and lined with rubber flashing.

Might reuse air dryer duct but leaning towards a universal kit in aluminum or black tubing

Simple Man...
My Taj Garage did a nice job but with that method you still have to remove the inner door panel to access the screws to remove the door skin.  My method has the removal screws at both ends of the door, inside the door jambs.

It is a lot more work but think about making the door skins removable.  That will make it so much easier to work on anything and everything inside the door while you are building AND when you are done and need to service it.
My Flickr page has a lot of pictures of how I did mine.

Received my inner & outer doors from Rhode Island.     ;D

Half the price of other quotes received.  ::thumbup

Packaged well and are really finished off nicely !!  ::toothy

Some mods needed for the OEM window glass.

I try to get something done on the REDO everyday  ::thumbup

The prior owner had the PCm just laying loosely on the bar that holds the rear engine mounts

Bough the GM pcm mounting bracket and welded up  mounting points

Decided on having the wiring hanging in the down position as it seemed cleaner.... but that could change once the engine is back in  ::scratch

Hey Simple, when you are changing S/C oil that stuff smells like dead road kill , don’t spill any
Seriously
