    Documenting stuff I have added so that I may fix as I forget:

      Finally replaced my broken fog lights. Installed Lamin-X on the replacement set so they should last a bit longer.

        Hey R3Z3N,

        What do you mean by clean power?
        Im going to be running an alpina style vent gauge and AFR module, should I use a replay or am I okay without it? Think I tapped switched power to the hazard light switch IIRC.

          Restoring the sunroof! My biggest undertaking with this car yet.

          Got the whole thing apart and cleaned out 30 years of crud from the rails. Added fresh lubrication and put it all back together. (It sounds simple when I put it in 2 sentences lol.)

          Some of the plastic pieces are cracked, broken, or missing, but the damn thing opens and shuts!

          Planning to replace the seal and other parts to really make it run like new.

            Got my speedo working by installing a new diff speed sensor plug that sits on top of the sensor and joined some broken wires. Speedo works perfect now other than the fact that it's in kilometers .

                Be very patient and go slow. If it's just dirt in the tracks causing most problems, unscrew the sunroof from the guides, and clean out the tracks.

                If that doesn't fix your problems, just pay a shop to deal with it, which is what I did. WELL worth it in my view.

                  How many hours did the shop charge you for? Who'd you have deal with it?

                            Finally "reupholstered" my driver's seat with "fresh" vinyl from a donor seat. It took my 6hours..

                            I swapped out the grey interior for black

                              Any writes on how to do this? My sport seats have some tears in them.
