Replacement bumper arrived, aftermarket unpainted oem old stock.  Could not believe I found them, yes them.  I found three of them, one has small damage on it.


I also did some repair work on the original radio.  It works great except for the cassette player, it will not load the cassette.  I found the specs, 16 in square belt, and found a company that sells belts.  After completing disassembling the radio and removing the cassette assembly I was able to replace the belt.  Now we have a working cassette player as well!


my wife and I really like the Beastie Boys and I was able to find an original cassette from 1986.  Very period correct for the car and enjoyable to listen to.

Making some more progress!  She has a complete nose now! No more giant hole!

found the bracket on the drivers side that mounts to the fender then the header panel bolts to it as well as the headlight bucket is bent in badly.  As a result I can’t get the bucket in the right place which means the side marker light is not seating fully.  Trying to find one from a junk yard is a fun scavenger hunt now days.  If anyone has one let me know.


she’s coming together nicely though.  Working on a new bumper and that’s the last largely damaged item.

Worked on the AC.


Pulled the system down and what little R12 was in it.  It held a vacuum which was a good sign.  Changed the fittings to the R134 and charged the system.  Let it sit overnight and the next day she was still blowing cold.  Evacuated the system again to make sure there wasn’t any R12 oil and make sure the proper amount of oil was added back in.  Charged the system again and put the correct amount of oil in the system and let her sit 24 hours.


still blowing nice and cold!  No idea the last time the AC was charged but so glad to see it all works still.  Now I can put the header panel and headlight bezels on.  Had them off so it would be easier to spot any leaks if there were any.

Did you check the fuses under the dash?  Also check the fuseable links in the engine bay on the passenger side shock tower.

Glad she got you through your trip. Very cool you journey that far with her!
