2004 Restoration Photos

2004 saw the completion of a lot of finishing work... new window seals, a new roofliner, re-installation of trim... sometimes it's hard to believe that this is the same car I bought less than 2 years ago.

January 5, 2004
Here are a few pictures of the gutted interior and the remains of the original roof liner.  It went to pieces when it was being removed.

The windlace looks great, but the ill-fitting, crooked-seamed roofliner at right will be sent back to SMS.  They are willing to "make it right," but this delay will hold up progress.

Here are a few images of the trunk piece, front grilles and headlight bezels.  They are all painted up, shiny, and ready to go back on the Pacer.  Rechroming is going to have to wait for now.  They certainly did shine up nice!

Here are a few recent pictures showing some of the side trim back on the car... it's shaping up!

Finally, a roofliner that fits.  A few places are wrinkled and puckering, but these are slowly evening out. Once they are steamed, they should be gone altogether.

Here are some images of the car with its windows back in!  Things are progressing more and more toward completion.  It won't be long before the car will be able to be taken on the road!  Hopefully I can take a spin before the snow starts to fly.

To the left is a picture of one of the new exterior door handles.  Shiny!  Inside the car, you can see the new roofliner hanging so that the dye on it can finish drying.  Once SMS finally sent me the "correct" roofliner, we discovered that it had been packed while the off-white dye was still wet.  The dye is pulling away from the RED vinyl that is underneath.  I will never be able to understand why I was sent a red roofliner that was dyed white, but what really matters is that this one is made of the correct weight of vinyl and it should go in better than the last one so that we can get this project wrapped up before winter sets in again.
