Hey here y'all I reckon I should post the interior work that I am finally getting around to here... Just in case y'all haven't seen the state of the interior I'll post a cpl pics. The trim that goes from the "fisher" area to the headliner literally has mostly just eroded away... the best way that I can put it. Dingy white interior with a split bench and no carpet or headliner as well as a hole needing pan replacement. I found some goodies at the Local junkyard such as the entire left side panels, both "body by fisher" pieces, all of the headliner trim, and all of the trim that connects it together as well. Both black visors too. ( for 40 bucks) I am returning Thursday (next day off) to get both buckets, the console and shifter, and both sets of door hinges to rebuild. I am also going to TRY to get the headliner out without damaging it as it's in perfect condition. The buckets will need totally restored, but no biggie- there all there, back vinyl trim covers and all. So I sanded and painted all of the vertical trim as some were very faded and brittle and will post those as well. More updates later fellas!! Thanks for reading.

I wanted a white interior in the GTO sooo bad, but was not to be.  Looks you made a great find.

Man, I like the white as well, but shows dirt so much... Thank you, yes I was abit shocked when he said 40 bucks -- would've paid lots more. I'm sure that I'll find somewhere else to overpay and make it up... ha ha

Nice work! Coming along great! I have a tan interior in the G6 so when I got the Camaro I went with black. The G6 shows all dirt and is a pain. Black is so much easier, except painfully hot in the summer

True ! I have Black over Gray in the Mustang and it does take the A/C awhile to catch up...  I reckon when I can afford new panels, we might go exotic and do them burgundy over charcoal or sum'n. Ended up replacing the fuel return line on her today, and got some more headway made on the vacuum lines but did also manage to get the upper drivers' door panel prepped and dyed! Here's what she looks like:

 

I have to restretch the vinyl or leather over the upper rear panels and adhere them to the fiberglass better before I can dye those, but it'll happen! Also found a set of rebuilt door hinges from the Monte Man for 125 bucks.. yay

      If you want to learn more about Pontiacs, enjoy photos of awesome vehicles, or locate sources for parts and accessories, you need issues from the Official Publication of the Pontiac - Oakland Club International.  I have boxes of  back issues and they can be yours by the box, a year of issues, or even a single magazine.  Let me know what you are interested in.  Thanks!

      So I have been fighting with this car ever since I got it. Engine is 3800 series 2. Engine code p0300. The problem is my cat keeps getting clogged. I've replaced upper and lower intake manifold gaskets, cleaned throttle, new throttle gasket, cleaned injectors, new injector o rings, new thermastat, and gaskets. New air filter, new plugs and wires, new coils, new icm. Cleaned maf, new fuel filter, new coolant elbows, and a new universal cat that was only 3 months ago and is now clogged. My last cat was clogged entirely nothing but black sludge. So I fixed all the coolant leaks and added new cat and the car was running brand new now it's showing symptoms of being clogged again. It runs real cool on the highway but when I get into the city with stop and go traffic it overheats with the Guage fluctuating and performance drops. Maybe my fan isn't cooling my engine? Idk. Any advice would be appreciative.

      1962 Catalina frame has rust through forward of driver's rear wheel where frame ties into lift pad. Slight creak when moving car. Is there any way to repair the area? Otherwise car, is good. Thank you.

      My Lemans has had this problem for some time now and i can't seem to figure out where it comes from. Anytime i go in reverse and turn the wheel counter clock wise to a certain degree i'll hear a grinding noise. The wheels don't seem to be rubbing and i'll take any advice i can get because i'm ready to try anything to get rid of this incessant noise. Thanks in advance!
