Actually bought the car the wednesday before this weekend which in Canada is Thanksgiving .
Drove it to Calgary AB. about (7hrs one way) to celebrate the weekend and spend time with family.
All I remember about the weekend is when we got to Calgary went through an automatic carwash for the
first and last time,,,,GOT SOAKED!! LOL,, and complained about the motel room that cost me 20 bucks!!
To celebrate we took the car for a drive and lunch today (driven it about 4 times since I touched up the paint on the drivers door in june).
Went down to Sandpoint ID. to a small eatery we enjoy. Been hearing some weird noises from the rear end
but after this run think it's a spring or something in the drivers side rear brake cause the noise changes with brake appication.
Crawlled under when I got home, about 60F outside , drove betwen 60-80 couldn't keep my hand on the center section,,opinions :?:
Still gotta pull the wheels to check brakes.

Well started on the interior over the last few days.
I mentioned in another thread about attempting the sewing myself,, although I think I would enjoy the experience, I'm not prepared to invest the TIME and money into it so I have retained the services of a local pro. She does mostly boats but I've seen some of her auto work and am fine with the quality.
A little background, when I bought The car in 1974 it already had a custom interior which has stayed The same other than I had the shag carpet replaced in the early 80s. Then when I got The 1989 Cougar XR7 V6 I decided to use The buckets from it, so they replaced the highback mopar buckets with Caliente stitched into the headrest. :oops:


The headliner I had done in California when we were down there in 2014 for a holiday with the car.

My plan is to redo the rug eliminate the stock rear seat and use the top of the Cougar back seat, have the front seats and door panels redone in vinyl. I don't know if it will stay but also going to wrap the metal on the door above and below the interior panel with Vvivid Leather look vinyl wrap. On a side note Vvivid also has chrome vinyl wrap, gonna get a small piece and try it on the gauge cluster.
So here I go!
Have pulled some of the interior to take to the upholster and started on the rear seat change.
Some pics are old and have been shown before.

Cam really surprised at how well the seat back fits in there.

I am not doing a back seat but have been thinking lately of making faux back bucket seats, basically just padded vinyl stitched to look like seats with maybe snaps to hold them in, my original idea was to make some trays to hold stuff like ice chests and suitcases, which I could still do but snap the fake seats in when those were not in there.

Anyway I love watching your Comet evolve over time, always a big inspiration to me.

See Ya,
Mike

Rug is pretty much done to the front of the back seat.

I got a little distracted ended up moving the battery a bit.
The trunk will be rugged in the end and I want side panels hiding the battery, tool box, gas can etc so the battery had to go out about 4 inches then it went down about 3,, just because.
Out with the old, and in with the new.
In the first pic scraped off some tar and this aqua paint showed up,,,, no clue where that came from,,? :roll:
Weld, paint, next!
