    Props to you for doing it how you like but why bother painting the two white slats grey?

    Now it doesn't look like a Berlina any more...

    Looks shit. Same as rear garnish painted black or $20 volt guage that was under dash.

    The more subtle these are the nicer

    With a good scrub and nearly a whole bottle of carpet cleaner, carpets came out pretty awesome. Shit like this makes me happy with the purchase. Rear seat is pretty good as well, only needed a few spots cleaned

    Also picked up some Loctite 480 from Bursons and some syringes, to fix the twisty steering wheel grip

    Fixed the steering wheel grip Rolling, although dribbled a bit of the loctite, not too stressed. Replaced the washer bottle little pump. Noticed the front strut tops are totally fucked out, surprised the struts haven't punched thru the bonnet.

    Got some 15x6s and painted them up. Also gave the rear seat a good scrub. My trimmer is concerned the new seat material will look out of place against the sun faded other seats.

    I think you could live with the rear seats slightly faded. Maybe he just wants more work.

    Washed the rear carpet and got a spare tyre fitted. Also painted the rear centre garnish back to match bumpers. Lots of bog visible under a couple spots on the bottom of rear window, from underneath. Not fussed, not like it will see much rain

    Nah, they are silver.

    Spent more time cleaning up the paintwork. Went over the door jams and all the newooks n crannys. Came up pretty good for old kitten in a tin.

    Also dropped the tar like oil, Jesus nasty. And dropped the trans fluid and put in fresh filters. That wasn't much better than the oil, wasn't burnt, just lots of clutch material.

    The genius that installed the tacho had it 8 cyl and on a horrid green, so changed that. Also pulled apart the t bar as it was loose and the power button was stuck in

    Put the back seats in and also connected up some old pioneers. Sounds not that bad actually

    Getting to a reasonable state finally

    Fixed the dodgy gas strut installation, so the bonnet actually opens fully now. Replaced swede spec blue silicon for black I had lying around. Dried out the drivers head light and got the high beams to work. Also replaced interior light fuse and glovebox light and clock now working. Still no main dome light or boot light.

    Car seems to run a lot smoother with fresh oil. Think cat is goneski as exhaust stinks of oil. Still waiting on drivers seat and them fix exhaust hitting Panhard bar

    What is this loctite and syringe deal you are speaking of?
    Sounds intriguing...

    You fill the 10ml syringe and poke the needle in the holes of the back of the steering wheel. You can even make more if need be. The trick is to pierce thru into the central core. Don't overfill and let it dribble on the wheel as it will never come off off

    Berlina rear end does look mint, especially with the red and silver strip on the filler strips

    Got the front seats back from classic motor trimmers in ringwood. Only $250. Replaced drivers back squab, fixed foam and then swapped it to passenger side. Got home and gave them a solid scrub with carpet cleaner and came up mint.

    Still having fun replacing strut tops with balljoints being super stubborn. Had to get out the big sledgehammer to loosen them

    Also think I'm going to paint the Venetians matte black. The white is a little to Habib spec

    Those seats look great. $250 seems cheap. You might have just convinced me to get my XD ones re-trimmed.

    If you are going to do more of the cleaning of seats etc get yourself a Bissell mate. For the money they are excellent.

    I'll be working down there soon so can maybe help with paint rejuvenation.
