Here what the dash looked like previous to paint.,,the edge is better than it was and now itís at least not going to lift anymoreÖ.
Also washed all the trim panels and also painted the seatbelt heads to install the rebuild kit for the notorious exploding belts, so far happy with the progress and paint match

So painted the upper part of the dash cowling (also did the lower section in black) ,one coat think I'll do 2 , all the interior, trim this is just some of the stuff hanging....and assembled seat belts, I had missed placed the coat hook for one of the side years ago and never got around to getting another,,,so my sone made one up for me....he works in the film industry and Makes props so this was simple for him to do I guess and turned out really well...
Next will be the install of the x mat....

Here’s a couple from within the paint shop a while ago and now at home, rear bumper is on now u can just see it in one of the other pics as well as the PONTIAC lettering used white models paint and thinners to drop the paint into the void of the lettering….not in the pic though …
I’ve got the door handles on, new locks installed, new door seals though one is different from the other figure that one out so I ordered 2 more seals ….new cowl seal to go on, trunk seal installed dry fit for now …if u look at the cowl pic the hood is on top of the roof for now until I’m ready to put it back on once I do the engine harness……lots of time to get this done for spring at this rate….since we got snow here now……dam pic upside down

Man. Everyday is BETTER!!!
1. Last Monday returned to living in my house. Alone, thankfully!!!
2.Tuesday visited the surgeon that perform my 2 life saving spinal cord surgeries. Got released to drove (!!!) Went for some driving in my 2005 Chevy pickup. Getting used to driving with not as much mobility in my neck. It's not difficult. I just ywist my torso to make up the difference.
3. Went to Wednesday evening church. Everyone got up and hugged me, laid hands on me and prayed for me!!!
4. Thursday evening Went to a church friend's house, Bible study. Got more hugs and prayers.
5. Friday was my birthday. A buddy took me to get a haircut. Been wanting one since August.
6. Saturday took a good friend out to a fancy rating place. We always have fun ( she's 20 years younger than me :O)
7. Went to Sunday a.m. church, more hugs and prayers!!!
8. Went to family Dr today for gallows up visit. That went well!!!

Hoping this year that mayber Ernie and Andy can help you get into the 11's!!!

Looking forward to seeing your car back together!!!
Jeff

With Ernie nd Andy on your side, I believe 11's will be easy. Maybe Andy will loan you his Quadrajet. It seemed to be a great carb. A set of Kauffman "D" port's may be in your future, and a "Old Faithful cam".
You've got just about everything else!!!

There was a guy at a job I had, as a teen. He had a firebird, same color as yours. Nice looking car, like yours. We called it"The Grest Pumpkin". I really liked that car. It was just a plain firebird, flat hood, no spoiler. Yours has the same look!!!

About Us

The PY Online Forums is the largest online gathering of Pontiac enthusiasts anywhere in the world. Founded in 1991, it was also the first online forum for people to gather and talk about their Pontiacs. Since then, it has become the mecca of Pontiac technical data and knowledge that no other place can surpass.
