Bringing Back my CL

This car has had a few owners,, and it shows. I'm trying to bring it back to what it should look like. Went to Gnuts house today and picked up a few things. We put the bumpers and cluster surround on at his house, and I did the wind deflector and seat bottom at home. Andrew, it was great to meet you, hope to see you again. Here's a bonus pic of the beater Del Sol that just turned over 300k miles.

30.6 miles per gallon on the way up, and 32.3 on the way back. Not sure 93 octane had anything to do with the higher mpg.. probably not.

Nice to meet you too Tony! I run 94 and I've heard other people say the engine seems to love it.

I can't see the pics you posted. I've been posting through the forum. There's a button beside the smiley face to post pics.

I'm going to grab some clock light bulbs (seems I have to buy several) and i'll put one in the piece i'll mail you. Pretty sure it was burnt out.

In the mean time this might help, lol. For everyone else, we swapped the dash and now his temperature is in Celsius.

Today I finished getting rid of the Ebay silver crap.. One of the previous owners did not know how to properly disassemble a door panel, as both switch bezel mountings are broken. But, they are sitting in place and looking better than before. I need to do the reglue fix on the door arm rests.

Future plans, not too sure of besides paint. Still needs some underhood plastics that a friend pulled but hasn't shipped yet. Need to replace the console cover, and a door hinge.
