Alright - I did get a little work done back in 2022. But 2023 was no bueno - other than some very basic sorting and cleaning of hardware. Here are a few pictures of progress on the passenger side of the car. I did manage to score an AVS2 for the suped up 318.

Progress for 2024!!! While it's still a bit chilly and wet to do bodywork, I figured I would work on one of the bling items on my 1971 Satellite. Here are some pics of the Rallye Gauge cluster getting a basic restoration. I cleaned up the bezel and applied some fresh argent silver along the edges. I applied some fresh bright white paint to the gauge housing. I repainted the orange needles, since they had faded a bit. I had to create my own foam gaskets, as the old ones were deteriorated. And I had to repair the upper left screw hole in the bezel with a little JB plastic weld. Pretty happy with the end result.
